Rafa Cabrera Bello

Pebble Beach, California

Q. Pebble Beach an iconic golf course, a beautiful sunny day and you've shot 69. How much fun have you had today?
RAFA CABRERA BELLO: Well, yeah, it's always nice to play here. This is actually my favorite course in the world and when we get the opportunity to play in a day with not a single cloud in the sky it makes it even more spectacular.

Q. Explain why it is your favorite course in the world.
RAFA CABRERA BELLO: I mean it's, for several reasons, I mean, obviously it's a historic course, it's a Major venue. I played here my first Major in 2010 as well. The one thing that I truly like is I think it's a course that you play once and you remember each hole forever, since every single hole is different from the previous one. So I think it's a very, very complete course, very tricky, and spectacular for sure.

Q. Your first round started at the 10th and your very first hole you make eagle. You're 4-under after seven. Today you make an eagle at the second hole, having teed off on the first, 4-under after seven. What's the secret to the fast starts?
RAFA CABRERA BELLO: Nothing, just hitting good shots and dropping the putts. But it's not that I go out thinking about a strong start or anything, it just has happened. Unfortunately both rounds there's been a few dropped shots in the back nine but overall the game's very good.

Q. Look at the putt at 17. Just describe this one.
RAFA CABRERA BELLO: Yeah, that was nice. I had made a few, I missed a few short ones before and this one had a huge break and I was just really trying to roll it in there and when I saw it go in I'm like, okay, that's a bonus.

Q. You played 31 times around the world last year, all over the world as well. That's a lot of golf to play. Why do you play as much as you do?
RAFA CABRERA BELLO: Well, I like to play, I like to play all over the world as well. Last year was my first year combining European Tour and PGA TOUR event, so I wanted to play a little bit more over here than what I would have normally done, just to get a feel for the courses and just getting to know just what life over here is. This year I might play a couple events less, but as a general rule, I tend to play quite a few events a year, yeah.
