Q. More highs this week. Tell us about the four days you've had here.
JUSTIN THOMAS: It was solid. I didn't really get much out of the middle two days, which is what's going to end up costing me this tournament. But I played well. I showed some good signs. I've been working really hard trying to get back into contending every week I play and winning more tournaments.
Like I said, I've been working hard. So it's good to see some of the shots and results show that.
Q. Final round, good being out with Poults?
JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I played well. Obviously left a couple out there like always in golf but I hit a lot of really, really quality shots. Made a lot of quality putts. I did a lot of things I needed to do to give it a run today, and I did. I just didn't quite get enough on that back nine.
Q. Good to have momentum, because next week is obviously a big week. Tell us about the momentum you're taking and what you need to work on possibly?
JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, if I play four rounds next week like I did today, I think we're going to have a pretty good chance. I'm excited for it. I like the state that my game is in. I like the way that it's trending, at least. But that being said, it's golf, and it doesn't just continue because you want it to. You have to keep working at it and pushing at it. I've got a day to rest and then get to learn a course I've never played before and get ready come Thursday.
Q. We spoke to you earlier in the week and you said about your excitement about being here. Tell us what it's like to be part of a Rolex Series Event with a great field and people out there that applaud and they understand The Rules of Golf.
JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, it's great. I've had great experiences playing in Europe, and it's makes me feel at home for some reason, I don't know what it is. I think a lot of guys on the PGA TOUR come over and play here, we get a great welcoming which is cool. Makes me want to come back and makes a lot of guys want to come back.
For someone like myself, I look at it as an opportunity to play in front of them. I don't get to play in front of these fans very often unless they are travelling a long way to come watch a tournament. It was good to put on a little bit of good golf and give it a run somewhat today.
