Q. (No Microphone.)
KEVIN KISNER: Yeah, it's kind of crazy how much good fortune I've had at this golf course and this tournament. You know, making that birdie on 15, holing that bunker shot really swung the momentum and I was fortunate here on 18 to leave it in a perfect spot off the tee. So I knew I had the advantage. Holing those putts to win never gets old.
Q. You said you like to get under guys' skin to be as annoying as possible. It doesn't seem like something you need to work at too hard.
KEVIN KISNER: (Laughing) I try to ignore 'em with my game not my chatter, except off the course.
But it gets tiring whenever you're in the fairway and on the green every time and you hoop a few putts. They get sick of that quickly.
Q. Four to play and you win on the 18th. You win the last four holes of this match. Just incredible stuff.
KEVIN KISNER: Yeah, it was looking a little bleak there coming down the stretch and able to round up some birdies, and eagle 16 was a good way to finish. I wasn't playing my greatest, wasn't making a lot of putts early, and turning it around like that to finish was pretty awesome.
Q. I guess there's several tipping points in the match but tell me about that bunker shot you hit on 16 for eagle?
KEVIN KISNER: I told my caddie right before I hit it, I said, We can use that wind to fly it right in the hole I think, and it came out just perfectly and slowed down with the wind, and I couldn't see it go in, but he said it trickled in like a putt. Those are things you dream about.
