Q. You talked that you like to play aggressive a lot of the time. Where do you choose when to play aggressive and not to play aggressive here?
GARRETT WILLIS: I really never choose to not play aggressive, to be honest. I pretty much pedal to the metal. I go to broke just about on every shot. That's where I've really struggled with my game this year, trying to find the areas to pick and choose when to go for it and when to not. Pretty much today, I was hitting the ball a little bit better, so I chose to play some conservative shots.
Like No. 7, a perfect example. Last year and earlier this year, I would hit driver on that hole every day. The funny thing is yesterday, I hit driver right of the concrete wall, in the hazard, and that pin was front right and I dropped it. It went back in the hazard. I dropped it again, so I got to place it. I hit a shot over the trees, over the stone wall, to a tough pin, to about three or four feet, it was just ridiculous how good of a shot that was. I wish I had it on tape, because nobody would probably believe me unless you saw it.
For example, I made par yesterday , but I just played too risky of a shot, and that's what I'm trying to do, is try to find a little more high percentage shot.
Q. When you're in the middle of a round like you had today, do you think how well you're playing, or do you not realize it until after you're through?
GARRETT WILLIS: I do realize how well I'm playing, especially when I struggled to make so many cuts this year. Even though this is my fifth in a row, this is the most I've ever made in my career, the Buy.Com or this Tour. It's tough to stay in the moment, but I was swinging at it good. When I got over my shots, Brennan and I really worked on getting the right yardage and playing to the right spots, and it really paid off for me.
