Viktor Hovland

Atlanta, Georgia, USA

East Lake Golf Club

Press Conference

THE MODERATOR: This is Viktor's second appearance back-to-back making it to East Lake, finishing 20th last year in the final FedExCup standings. I think just starting off it's obviously a big deal to get back here two years in a row. I guess how would you kind of grade your season overall and explain what it means to be back at East Lake.

VIKTOR HOVLAND: Yeah, it means that you've played pretty consistently throughout the year and it's a cool achievement to be able to be back here. And I had a good year last year, but I've had an even better one this year, so it's nice to see that the, things are going the right way and we're only starting seven shots behind and not 10, so that's a good start. Hopefully we can do a little bit better than finishing 20th this year.

THE MODERATOR: Starting seven back, having played this golf course last year, what do you think is a key to being able to go low around here.

VIKTOR HOVLAND: You got to really put the ball in the fairway here. The fairways are pretty narrow and the rough is pretty thick because the ball just sits down in the, all the way down, and you can't really attack the pins. It's all about trying to make pars from the rough and when you hit the fairways you can really be aggressive. The greens are really pure. They're firm and fast, so you're really going to have to hit the ball well to get close. But once you're on the green you can really make some putts if your speed's right and you can read the greens well because they're perfect.
