Quick Quotes

Q. 5-under today. Great way to start. What are your takeaways from round one?

COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it was a great start to the day. I have taken a few weeks off from tournaments since the TOUR Championship, so I feel rested, I was excited to get here and get back into competition. And I had a hot start today, got it going towards the end of the first nine I played and, yeah, kept playing solid golf throughout the round. But really happy with the start and definitely some positive momentum going into the next few days.

Q. You had six birdies on the front nine, five in a row, 14 through 18. Talk us through what was going through your head as you were making birdie after birdie?

COREY CONNERS: I was having fun, enjoying it. I really didn't even know I made five in a row until I was signing my scorecard and I was like, Oh, that's cool. Yeah, I just tried to play with freedom, was able to roll in some putts and, yeah, able to string some birdies together.

Q. Your first start to the new season. What did you do with the time off that you did have?

COREY CONNERS: My wife and I went up to Canada for a few days to see some family. It had been quite awhile since we were able to go there so that was really nice. I got to play some golf with my dad and that's always special, he's been my biggest supporter through the years. And it was awesome to see him, my mom. Just relaxed, got in a little bit of work in Florida just before coming out here, but, yeah, feeling rejuvenated.

Q. Depending upon what is happening in the world obviously, but normal times would your family come to a lot more events?

COREY CONNERS: Yeah, they have been itching to try and come and watch some events. It's just not too easy right now. Hopefully it gets easier for them and they will be able to come watch in the new year.

Q. Your impressions on the golf course, the conditions?

COREY CONNERS: I really love this golf course. I think they do a great job setting it up. The greens are some of the best greens we play on all year. I think it's a very underrated golf course, it's right in front of you, but you got to be really on or you can make, you can have some trouble. But beautiful golf course, the greens are just amazing, so it's nice to see some putts go in.
