Jon Rahm

Old Westbury, New York

Q. Just a couple of comments about your round today?
JON RAHM: Well, to be honest, really pleased with the score. You know, driving was good today I would say. I did take last week off, so a little bit of rustiness. It wasn't my best ball-striking day when it comes to the irons.

I didn't hit my best quality shot with the irons. I felt like I didn't really take advantage of all the opportunities I had over there but a couple of good breaks, a couple of bad ones like always. Overall I'm really pleased with a 2-under par round given how I hit the irons today.

Q. A lot of guys have been saying there's quite a difference in scoring on front and back nine.
JON RAHM: Well, I shot the same score on both nines. You know, you can tell just because 1, 2, 3 and 4 is an extremely hard start. I had 6-iron into the first hole, a 6-iron on the second, hard reachable par 5 and then another 6-iron into the fourth -- and that's me. Dustin had 6-, 7-irons, as well.

So when you have the longest hitters in the world hitting those kind of shots, the rest of the field are going to be hitting something longer; it just makes it tough. It's not the easiest start.

Once you get to No. 8, is when it gets a little bit easier. It gets a little shorter and that's where you can be more aggressive. I think that's where the difference is. You can have a really hard start on those holes.
