Q. Congrats, another hard-fought match. You have nothing but hard-fought matches lately.
KEVIN KISNER: It felt like a heavyweight bout. He's a hell of a ball striker, always in play, hitting great shots after great shots.
Fortunate enough to come out on the right side of this one for sure.
Q. You had at least three times, great par saves. You have to admit those were clutch.
KEVIN KISNER: Yeah, early in the round I made a couple putts. You're trying to get some attention away from them, make them start thinking about it a little bit. He hung right in there.
The up-and-down on 10 and then making that putt on 11, that kind of threw a wrench in my get-up there, but glad I was able to come out on top.
Q. The shot at 18, you see things other guys don't see. Did you know that was going to roll down there to three feet?
KEVIN KISNER: That was exactly what I was trying to do. I figured if it went just to the right of that tree and got to the hill, it would come back within five feet.
I got to the top of the hill and it wasn't moving as fast as I thought it should have been, and I'm like, oh, God. I love this place. I love using angles. I love using slopes. I love just trying to figure out a way to get the ball in the hole.
Q. You've won here before and now you get Scottie Scheffler in the championship match. Your thoughts?
KEVIN KISNER: Well, he's on a heater. Obviously I need his putter to cool off for me to have a chance.
But I want to keep staying annoying out there and see what happens.
