Quick Quotes

Q. How would you assess your play in your victory today?

JON RAHM: It's a good round. Very I don't know what the word would be, it's not stress free, but maybe organized. I didn't make many mistakes. Hit a lot of fairway, hit a lot of greens. The only thing that I would like to see improve is a couple short putts that, about three of them, couple of them were misreads, one of them was just a bad stroke that, had I made those, I think I could have closed it out early, but at the same time I had a chip-in and made a long putt on 13. So it balances out. Overall it was a good round of golf.

Q. You talked yesterday about working on your mental approach as we gear towards Augusta. How would you assess that today?

JON RAHM: Honestly I feel like I said that because you guys asked me and I had no other answer. It's this week so I'm working on winning. But there is moments, right, where sometimes getting a par is very, very important and I think 11 was a key example of it. I made a good swing, we misjudged the wind, ended up in a bad spot, bad lie, hit a great chip and made a good 10-footer to keep the round going and keep the 1-up lead. So I think that's one of those good examples.

Made a bad tee shot, what I thought was a bad tee shot on 12, got a good bounce, ended up in the fairway and from there made another great up-and-down to win another hole.

So I think that stretch of 11, 12 and 13 is where, in a major championship, making a couple pars and a birdie could switch the round. It's one of those moments, one of those stretch of holes that can change the momentum of the tournament.

And in that sense I felt like I kept my patience very, very well and just stayed focused on what hi to do and it paid off.

Q. You talked about maybe misjudging the wind a little bit. Couple players have said the wind was maybe inconsistent, today did you find that out there?

JON RAHM: Yeah, so perfect example is that I'm on 10, perfect spot in the fairway, good yardage, I have 120 yards and I have my wedge and I make what I think is a good swing and all of a sudden I get a heavy gust and I hit it 40 feet by.

So we're standing on 11 tee and we're expecting to have that 10 to 15 mile an hour at least wind, right, and I hit it and all of a sudden it just dies. That's why I ended up long right. So it happens. I feel like all of a sudden it went from very, very heavy wind to nothing.
