16 was pretty pivotal for me because I struggled a little bit with staying patient and my frustrations got the best of me there. It started raining and the other two guys had just hit and it was really coming down pretty good. And I was kind of being -- I was trying to be patient by letting the rain subside and it looked like it was just getting harder, so I was I figured I might as well go ahead and hit it. Didn't take a practice swing, I'm trying to stay under the umbrella and stay dry, my back was getting soaked. And I pulled my tee shot left the only fairway I missed of the day. And I was pretty ticked that I ended up hitting it in the rough. I thought it might have kicked a little right but we couldn't see it land, it was raining pretty good. Then we get up there and we found the ball and no problem. Decent lie. Not too bad. I took a poor line on my layup. I've got seems like a hundred yards right and I take it at the pin and end up laying it up in the rough again. So now I've hit a bad tee shot and followed up with a bad decision by taking too tough of a line. Then I walk up there and I've got 150 yards, 49 yards to the hole. And when I first calculated it we had 167, and for some reason I decided to just to kind of be patient, slow down, knew I had a chance to make par. Recalculate the yardage, looked at that again and came up with 149 yards. So it was pretty big difference. Second time I came up with the yardage. So we really blew the first yardage. And hit it 150 yards out of the rough to the pin into a little bit of a wind. And I had checked the pin placement out when I was going to the par-3 No. 11. I checked the pin -- no, yeah. No. 11. I checked, is 14 right there? Yeah. 14 I remember walking up to, yeah, to 14 I walked over to the right just to check out the pin to see where it was. And I noticed there was no room left. You had all day right. So I said, hit it to the right of the pin, give yourself a 20, 30 footer, we will take par and get out of here. And the ball came out perfect, landed soft and had about a three, four-footer for, had about a three footer at the most for birdie. I hit 7-iron out of the rough.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Must have been nice even though it started raining to get back into your shots and you managed to get one birdie out of it.
GARRETT WILLIS: Yeah, I was definitely looking bogey in the face. Especially with my mindset and my attitude getting a little sour at that point. Getting a birdie there it was unbelievable. And then I followed it up with a great tee shot on 17 and hit it right below the hole gave myself a decent putt to take the lead at six. And just barely misread it. Left it on the low side and parred 18.
Q. Do you have many family and friends down for this?
GARRETT WILLIS: Yeah, with my parents being in Knoxville they drove up, they met my wife in Nashville and drove up. And it's pretty neat, last year Doug Barron hooked us up with a family that lives on the 18th tee, the Caseys, and it really makes it fun being able to stay at their house and to be able to come back the next year. They have two young kids and to be able to kind of hang out with them and be with them it's pretty fun.
Q. What are their names?
GARRETT WILLIS: Chip and Susan Casey.
Q. C A S E Y do you know?
GARRETT WILLIS: C H I P. Chip. Last name. Oh, Casey. Yeah. Yeah. C A S E Y.
Q. Is it just making it, what, you feel like you're more comfortable?
GARRETT WILLIS: It is way more comfortable. As much as we travel we stay at a lot of hotels and we actually, Jennifer, my wife and I we stay at a host housing as regularly as we can, but these are, this family is just very special to us and we really enjoy hanging out with them. So it makes it real comfortable and real easy.
Q. Is it the type of thing you keep in touch with them?
GARRETT WILLIS: Yeah. We keep in touch regularly. We're actually, we're in the midst of planning a vacation with them later this year. But our times aren't working out. Our times or our destination. Don't seem to be working out. They want to go to the Bahamas we wanted to go to the Grand Caymans, so.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Okay. Thank you very much.
