Quick Quotes

Q. How would you assess your match today?

TALOR GOOCH: We didn't have our A games, either of us. It was kind of a little bit of a pillow fight but that's match play. Each match you just got to figure out how to win and so didn't have the A game today and was able to figure out how to win so hopefully we can keep it going.

Q. What did you figure out in this match to pull it out?

TALOR GOOCH: Man, just enough wind out there and this course is just quirky enough in some spots that you just know some weird things are going to happen at times. So you just, you got to try to eliminate mistakes and so I didn't do a great job of it, but I did a good enough job on the first nine holes to give myself a little bit of a cushion going into the back and was able to hold on.

Q. This is your first win in this match play format?


Q. Feel good to get that monkey off your back, but also winning on day one, which kind of sets you up for better things the next couple days?

TALOR GOOCH: It's funny, people, if you really dive into it, last year my first time here it was my fifth week in a row, I hadn't planned on playing in the tournament until I got into it and so I came into this tournament last year on fumes.

So I didn't have a good tournament last year, but that's so irrelevant because if you look at what I've done historically I play well in match play. So, but no, when you're playing against a guy who, I asked him on the 7th hole, I was like, What year is this for you out here? And I think he said 29. So when you have someone like that who has all the experience in the world, all the Ryder Cups, he's done it all and you know you're not going to have an easy one. So it was good to get a win for sure.

Q. Why do you feel like you're a good match play player?

TALOR GOOCH: I don't know, I think there's a little bit of the growing up playing different sports golf's only sport where you don't have a direct person opponent, right? You're playing the golf course and in other sports you have an opponent. So it's a little bit of that mentality of I got to figure out how to beat this team, beat this guy right here.

So I think growing up playing different sports and being in that mentality is something that helps for this.
