TPC Craig Ranch
Q. Sergio, how pleased are you with today's round?
SERGIO GARCIA: Yes, no, it was obviously a great round. I would've loved to birdie the last hole, I'm not going to lie. But, you know, I think overall it was a solid day. A lot of good things.
Couple of things that could have been better, but overall it was nice and putted nicely. So very happy with the way it went.
Q. What would you say could have been better?
SERGIO GARCIA: Couple of shots here and there for sure, couple of drives. But for the most part, I hit a lot of shots the way I wanted and a lot of putts the way I wanted.
That is probably why we were able to score nicely.
Q. The approach on 6 for eagle, 52 yard shot. Walk us through that.
SERGIO GARCIA: Yes, we hit driver and thought we couldn't reach because it was into the wind, but we knew if we hit it in the fairway we're going to be around that 50 yard range, and a little bit into the breeze even with a front pin I could nip it nicely out of the zoysia grass and spin it.
Caught it perfectly. As soon as hit it I knew it was going to be close. Didn't know if it was going to go in or not, but knew it was going to be close.
It was nice to hear the crowd go a little bit crazy there, because we couldn't see it go in.
Q. We haven't seen you since the RBC Heritage. What have you been doing?
SERGIO GARCIA: Went back to the Europe with the wife and the kids. It was nice. Went to Switzerland and a little bit to Spain, so my parents got finally meet little guy, Enzo. So it was nice to spend some time there. It's been a long time since we been back in Switzerland and Spain, so it was nice to disconnect a little bit there.
Q. How can a disconnect like that affect your came positively?
SERGIO GARCIA: Definitely can. Coming off a couple missed cuts where I felt like I didn't play that badly, I think it was nice to kind of switch off a little bit, get some good momentum going, good energy going, and then bring it all here and show it off.
Q. You certainly pulled it off. Best of luck.
SERGIO GARCIA: Thank you.
