TPC Sawgrass

Quick Quotes

Q. Could you talk a little bit about how difficult it was to deal with those times today whenever you guys got in thick rough. Rory was in it a lot, you weren't in it nearly as much as he was, but how tough was it just getting out of that stuff?

JON RAHM: Yeah, it's difficult. You don't have a lot of margin to miss out here. Even when you're in the fairway, you have to hit a lot of quality shots to give yourself a birdie chance. Anytime you're off the fairway, if you can advance it to the green, great; if not, you just have to somehow manage where you can put the ball to give yourself the best chance for par.

It's thick. It's thick out there. It's no joke. It's very few times you're going to have a ball in the rough where you can confidently think you can put it on the green.

Q. Was that putt curling out on the last hole kind of like a culmination of a day where you just couldn't get momentum going?

JON RAHM: Well it felt like a slap in the face on a day that I hit a lot of putts and just kept burning edges to one that looked like it was going in and, you know, it's just, it's just what it is. It's golf.

The only thing I could say is that I hit a lot of quality putts out there. The only thing I will be thinking on today is a couple wedge shots, about three or four of them out there, that not only didn't I hit hit them close, some of them I missed the green completely. I did get up-and-down, but those were situations where I should have given myself four really good birdie looks and I didn't. So that's where I think the difference on the round was today compared to other scores out there.
