Q. How big of a factor is the wind?
TOM BYRUM: On this course, it needs the wind. It's just that one more element that keeps the course from -- otherwise, the rain has softened the greens. You just get it in the fairway, get it and you can fly it right to the hole. The wind definitely helps, even though it won't -- it's not the end-all, but the wind is going to help. Any time you have wind, it's going to add to the difficulty.
Q. Is it fun when there's so many people who have a shot?
TOM BYRUM: I wish they were all ten behind me. (Laughter.)
It was fun just to get out there and just keep scoring, that was fun. Like I said, it's only halfway. This is nothing to get -- I wish it was Sunday and I was sitting here but it's not. So I can't let it get to me too much. I've just got to keep going and making birdies.
Q. Do you think this is a good week to not look at the leaderboard?
TOM BYRUM: It wouldn't be a bad week too, yeah. I think you know what you have to do. If you get on -- like I said if you can get comfortable out there and just keep doing what you're doing, in that flow, you're putting well, what else can you do. Looking at the leaderboard, that's not going to help you.
They just keep making them. The par 5s, there's going to be eagles, there's going to be a lot of leapfrogging out there. It's going to be a good one for me. I probably won't look at it too much.
Q. When would you?
TOM BYRUM: Oh, the last couple holes probably if I felt like I was right in there I might ask my caddie how we are doing.
JOHN BUSH: Keep it going this weekend.
