Q. Why not 3-wood off the 17th tee?
DAVIS LOVE III: I've just never hit a 3-wood. I had 107 yesterday and, well, every day this week I've had 110 yards or less. I can hit a 3-wood through the fairway too, so I figure if I got to hit something up there with a cut on it, just go ahead and hit driver.
I've never -- I won't say never, but not in recent memory have I hit it on the left side. I've always hit it in the fairway or in the rough so I can hack a sand wedge up on the green. After I hit my drive, John's 3-wood looked pretty good. You know, everybody was talking yesterday about how close I was on the green from my second shot yesterday, so that's where I was trying to put it again.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Can we go through your birdies and bogeys real quick, starting with No. 7?
DAVIS LOVE III: No. 7, driver off the tee, 9-iron to about to 10 feet.
No. 9, driver and 3-wood to about 40 feet from the hole and 2-putted.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: 10 and 11?
DAVIS LOVE III: 3-wood off the tee at 10 and a 60-degree wedge to about 10 feet.
11, the driver and a 3-iron just through the green, pitched it about 8 or 10 inches short of the hole. I was probably 50 feet away from the hole, just off the right side of the green.
And 14, an 8-iron to about 12 feet.
And 15, a driver, 5-iron just through the left side of the green and a little chip-and-run with a 7-iron from 50 feet, chipped it down there 6 inches.
And 18, -- well, 17, drove it left. Sand wedge right of the green and chipped up, missed about a 4- or 5-footer.
And 18, driver and a 7-iron to about 15 feet behind the hole.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Okay. We'll take two more questions.
Q. Jerry Kelly's confidence, do you see him as a different guy since he won Sony?
DAVIS LOVE III: Yeah. He looked like -- and I just happened to see him play a couple times on TV when he was close to the lead or leading, and he looked like he got even more excited than he normally is and got a little quick and jumpy. It looked like at Hawaii he was more in control, and ever since then he's been more relaxed about the way he plays. This is obviously just watching from a distance, but he looked pretty good out there today, the shots I saw, the holes I saw him on. He looked pretty calm and collected, and he's learned his way around the lead. He's handling it better than I think he did a couple years ago.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Thank you.
DAVIS LOVE III: All right. Thanks, guys.
