Matthew Fitzpatrick

Virginia Water, Surrey, England

Wentworth Golf Club

Press Conference

Q. Looked like you were taking everything in your stride out there. You spoke on course that everything just seemed to be clicking, is that how it felt?

MATTHEW FITZPATRICK: Yeah, it was a solid round. It was a really solid round. Did everything really well. The only bogey I made, I got really unlucky that somehow my 52 normally goes 128. Pitched to 103 I think. One off the green and made it difficult to get up-and-down. On the whole, everything was solid so just keep it tomorrow.

Q. Birdie, birdie coming home. How difficult was the course, a few gust, colder and damper?

MATTHEW FITZPATRICK: Than normal, yeah, definitely. Early on, it was a little bit windy, as well. The wind kind of died on the back nine which was definitely beneficial. The wind today made the course, certainly on some holes, a little bit easier -- the ones into the wind played tougher.

Q. Absence of a few fans, but coming down 18 without seeing the holes framed by the stadium, what does it look like?

MATTHEW FITZPATRICK: It's just a shame. It's a real shame. It's baffling to me still that there's not a few fans allowed in. I can't understand it whatsoever. But it definitely quieter, which is, unfortunately, to be honest, makes it a little worse and I'm sure that everyone agrees that it just doesn't have the same feeling coming down the last few holes.

Yeah, I mean, it's still a fantastic golf course and a great event, but it just really sad, obviously, not to have any fans.
