Q. Corey, great week for you here at Sony, a tournament where you've had some good finishes. Take me through the final round and the week.
COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it was a good week overall. Really like the golf course here. Beautiful weather and it can be tricky. Feel like it suits my game well. Played solid today. Got off to a really good start. Kind of disappointed I couldn't pick up a few more towards the end.
There is no gimmes out there, and overall really happy with the round.
Q. You said hot start; three birdies in your first three. How did that set the tone for the day?
COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it's always nice. Felt like I got into a good rhythm early. That was kind of the goal today, and was trying to keep it going as much as possible, just not really force anything, but just try and keep hitting good shots.
Definitely took some confidence, a little better start than I had yesterday, 3-over through the first two.
Q. A week like this so early in the year, how does that set you up going forward?
COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it's nice. I had a lot of confidence in my game for a long time now. Be nice to string four good rounds together. Kind of struggled a bit yesterday.
But take a lot of positives. Worked on my game quite a bit in the off-season. New dad, so being a father has been pretty amazing.
Good to get out and play well early, and hopefully can keep the momentum going the next few weeks.
Q. Obviously several months away, but it's a Presidents Cup year. How much is that on your mind and how much would you like to be on that team?
COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it would being awesome to be on the team. It's a big goal of mine throughout the year. Can't really force anything. Just got to try and play good golf and that will take care of itself.
Definitely excited with the prospect of being on that team, and going to be working as hard as I can to try and earn my spot.
