TPC Craig Ranch
Q. 6 under par 66 today. Excellent round. Just get some comments.
RYAN PALMER: Yeah, good solid score. Rough golf in the beginning, but overall just got kind of got my putting feeling better again.
Hit a lot of close shots. Didn't make much, but I hit a lot of shots close, and six birdies, no bogeys again today. Still feel like there was a shot or two left out there. I mean, every shot out here counts on this golf course because you know the scores are going to be solo.
Today shoot 6 and probably maybe be six back I'm guessing. A little ground made up but not much. Overall good round. See what the weather holds tomorrow.
Q. Those guys at the top at this point haven't jumped too far ahead. Are you pulling for a little bit of wind this afternoon?
RYAN PALMER: Wind is up there, it's blowing a little bit. But still, I think a lot of holes are downwind. It's not that hard of a golf course. Last three holes you got to hit some good shots coming in into the wind.
There are some tough holes to be played for those guys, so I did what I needed to do. Come out with a good round and put myself there.
Q. You've been really consistent here of late, made a lot of cuts. Just comment a little bit about the state of your game and your goals for tomorrow.
RYAN PALMER: Yeah, it's been fun. Definitely playing consistent, making cuts every week is huge. Game is there. Had some good weeks and not-so-great weeks at Tampa, but was able to play some decent golf.
It feels great now. If I can get myself within four or five shots going into tomorrow, anything can happen. Need to shoot a low one, but I'm excited where I'm at and excited about tomorrow and the PGA next week at my home course, at Colonial.
A lot of good weeks ahead of me. My game is where I want it to be.
