Quick Quotes

Q. What did you have for dinner last night?

JON RAHM: What did I have? I don't remember. Clearly a good dinner and a good breakfast, that's all I can say.

Q. Fantastic start, can you take us through that?

JON RAHM: Yeah, I think we were fortunate the first seven, eight holes, really no wind at all, right. So when you play an a links golf course with no wind, you can make some birdies.

I was enjoying some really good iron play, hitting it close, and as hard as it is to believe, 7-under through ten, I could have made a couple more putts because they were not long. When the wind picked up, and playing 2 through 4 or 2 through 5, the starting line changed, so I feel like it was a little bit of adjustment in that sense.

But you're always going to struggle through a couple holes and I tried to minimise as much as possible. I would say through the whole tournament yesterday and today, maybe short game need to be a little bit better, when I miss a green, give myself better chances for par. You know, hopefully clean up a couple mistakes.

Q. Bunker shot on the last was important.

JON RAHM: Yeah, that was uncomfortable in the sand, even though the other green-side bunker I was at, I had no shot. Even though I was short-sided, the ball was above my feet which always helps create more loft and the wind was against me. It was a little bit easier than it could have been. I think because I knew it was that important, I committed really, really hard to that shot and maybe took a bit more of a risk than I should have taken but it worked out.

Q. You're making this look very easy. Is there anything in your game you need to work on at all?

JON RAHM: I think everything can get a little bit better. The first ten holes, I made perfect golf, and after that, a couple tee shots, maybe more than anything, decision-making. Meaning that if you're ever in between clubs or you don't see a shadow or you're not comfortable step in the back and commit to a shot, and that's important in a tournament and golf course where conditions are ever-changing.
