Webb Simpson

Greensboro, North Carolina

Q. Webb, you feel pretty good about where you are?
WEBB SIMPSON: Yeah. You know, I would have liked to have shot a little bit better today but, overall, I'm 1-back, I guess, which we'll always take starting the week. I'm in position to have a good day tomorrow and hopefully I'll do it.

Q. Is there anything different about a tournament going into the final day when there are so many guys that close to the lead?
WEBB SIMPSON: Not really. But, you know, on a course like this I know that I'm going to have to play a great round of golf to come out on top.

So, again, like everyday, I'm thinking birdies, trying to play aggressive and play smart at the same time and if I can do that, I think I'll have a shot.

Q. I was trying to come up with like another sports comparison to show the scores here this week at Sedgefield at Wyndham. I keep coming back to the Home Run Derby, you know, just seems like you got to hit a lot of home runs to be successful here.
WEBB SIMPSON: Yeah. Also think this course has defense. With the undulating greens and around the greens and there is a little bit of rough here to make us think so it's not a walk in the park but certainly if you drive it well you'll have some birdie chances.

Q. Webb, it's been a couple years since you've won. Does that play on your mind at all or just kind of do what you have to do?
WEBB SIMPSON: Absolutely. Very hungry to win again, very hungry to compete week-in, week-out regularly. So, yeah, it's on my mind a little bit but right now I got dinner on my mind and got to come out tomorrow and do my best.

Q. Webb, how big is it for you to be one shot back?
WEBB SIMPSON: Yeah. I didn't really see what was going on out there but, you know, anytime you're within two, three of the lead, you know, you got a good chance and, you know, for most guys on Tour it's not every week that you have a chance to win. So hopefully I'm going the take advantage of it and come out and play a good solid day. Thank you.
