Justin Thomas

Atlanta, Georgia, USA

East Lake Golf Club

Round 3 Quick Quotes

Q. Personal low 63 here at East Lake. Maybe a couple opening comments on yesterday's round and finishing up today?

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I played beautifully yesterday. Didn't miss a shot today. That putt was awesome there. I would have loved to finish yesterday, but no, I mean, I did what I needed to do and put myself in a position. I just need to hope these guys don't finish with a flurry here this morning to at least leave us within striking distance. I did my part, which is all I can ask.

Yeah, I absolutely love this golf course. I feel like it's a place you can shoot low on, I just haven't finished off some good starts that I've had in the past, and I was really glad to break through that barrier and do it today.

Q. Have you ever slept on a two-footer?

JUSTIN THOMAS: I don't think I have. It was weird because you just wanted to do it, but it was like the most nervous I've been on a two-footer, but it's like perfect greens, dead straight, you're not going to miss it, but you just don't want to. It's like, let's-just-get-it-over-with type of thing.

Q. What will you do the next couple hours waiting around?

JUSTIN THOMAS: I mean, it won't be crazy timing. When I play this late I usually like to putt before lunch anyway, honestly I'll probably have like 45 minutes, relax, chill a little bit. Even this morning, it's like it's so hot I'll probably rinse off a little bit and try to get cool, then go putt, see my physio, eat lunch and get back after it.

Q. You mentioned perfect scoring conditions out here, decent chance, Scottie, Xander, some other guys might throw some more birdies up there, could be another 63 in the cards for you to try to win this thing. What's that mentality like?

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I'm probably going to need to shoot at least that, but hopefully I don't have to. At the end of the day if I play like I did yesterday, I have full capability of shooting another low round. At that point it's just about doing it. Just need to stay patient, keep our head down and try to make as many birdies as we can.
