Q. Talk about the conditions today; I know you hadn't made a bogey today, but you responded both times after you made bogeys, coming back with birdies today.
EMILIANO GRILLO: Yeah, it was definitely trickier today. I was definitely thinking about it. I just wanted to keep going without bogeys. But yeah, it was a solid day. I was able, like you said, to bounce by with those, and kept me in there. I know Stewart is playing some amazing golf in there. It looks like he's not making many mistakes, so it's going to be a tough day tomorrow.
Q. But knowing that those low numbers are out there, how excited are you to play tomorrow, Sunday, championship Sunday at the RBC Heritage?
EMILIANO GRILLO: Definitely. This is what we play for, just being there in the mix and having the opportunity, and I'm going to try to make the most out of it. If it's not up to me, then he's going to have to go out and earn it.
Q. 2-under today; what are your takeaways from another great day of golf?
EMILIANO GRILLO: Yeah, solid day. You know, this keeps me there in the mix for second place so far. Stewart is playing some great golf out there, and going to be a hard day tomorrow if he keeps playing this way.
I don't know how the conditions are going to be tomorrow. For sure they're going to be dry and fast, and just got to go and make some birdies.
Q. You mentioned for second place so far, but anything can happen in golf, so what's your mindset as you prepare for tomorrow?
EMILIANO GRILLO: I mean, I've just got to go and play my game. Just got to shoot the lowest number I can. Like I said, just wait for Stewart not to play so well. I hope for the best for him, but I also want to win.
Q. You hadn't made a bogey until the 12th hole today. What were you telling yourself as you came off that hole?
EMILIANO GRILLO: I mean, this golf course is really tricky. You're going to be in the fairway and you're going to be blocked. I was able to manage to dodge those mistakes for quite a while out here. It's not one of the easiest golf courses, so I know I'm not going to walk off this golf course without bogeys, otherwise it would have been a phenomenal week. I'll take it.
