Quick Quotes

Q. Another solid day, and now you're tied for the lead going into Sunday. Your thoughts on the round today?

FRED COUPLES: Yeah, well, I saw a leaderboard late. The guys in front of us all played pretty well. I got off to not a slow start, I just didn't make many birdies or hit any really, really good shots. But finished strong, and I'm tied with Robert with a handful of guys very, very close. It was a good birdie on the last. I didn't hit the ball poorly, you've just got to get it in the right spots. I've got to play the par-5s better tomorrow, but I birdied -- I guess I only got one of them, so one birdie on the four of them is not good enough.

But tomorrow will be a different day. I'll have to play pretty well, and you have to make those putts against those guys.

Q. It's probably going to be -- it's obviously wide-open, bunched up tomorrow. Could be a pretty wild day.

FRED COUPLES: Yeah, if the weather stays -- it's hot. I don't know if it's supposed to be warmer tomorrow, but yesterday at 9:30, that was a pretty easy tee time. 1:00, 12:45 where it's at the heat of the day, and I don't wear a glove, and I've got to figure out maybe a little better system tomorrow on how to feel really good on every shot with the sweat and stickiness. But that was not a problem today, but it got exciting out there, and it got bunched up. Someone at 8-under could shoot 7- or 8-under and still win. No one is really out of it, that's for sure.
