Q. You two are friends, I was just wondering if you had any communication before the match and/or during the match, and what you might have chatted about?
CHAD CAMPBELL: We spoke a little bit on the putting green this morning, kind of about how everybody thinks we look alike, just kind of had a little laugh about that.
Yeah, we are good friends. We had a great time out there. Really the back nine we didn't talk that much. We were kind of focusing on what we were doing. That's about it. We are good friends, and, you know, we always will be, and I'm very happy for him.
Q. Obviously it's not easy to get in contention in a major. Do you take more positives out of playing a solid round on a tough golf course than you do the disappointment of finishing second?
CHAD CAMPBELL: I think so. It is very difficult to get yourself in that position in the last group of a major championship. But I've got to think, you know, take positives out of today the way that I played coming down the stretch, I've got to use that maybe next time that I get in that position. Hopefully that will be soon.
Q. You talked about the shaky start, you didn't feel real solid; was it nerves? If not, what was it?
CHAD CAMPBELL: It wasn't really the way I felt. I felt good. I just didn't hit fairways. I had just a terrible lie on 2. Me and Shaun both did. I don't know if y'all saw, we could barely get it back to the fairway and we were only about five feet off of it.
1, I hit just a bad 3-wood over to the right. It's just not really the start that I was looking for, but once I got in the middle of the round and into the round, I was really relaxed and felt good.
JULIUS MASON: I'm sorry, but Chad has got to leave. A quick hole-by-hole, please.
CHAD CAMPBELL: Bogey on 1. I drove it right and chipped out in the fairway. Hit, I believe, a wedge to probably 15 feet past the hole and missed that.
Bogeyed 6. Just hit the wrong club off that hole. I thought the wind was more right-to-left and it ended up being down. Hit 7-iron and I should have hit 8-iron over that green and it was just dead where that pin was today.
7 was a bogey. Hit a great tee shot, 3-wood and then had 5-iron in. Hit it right, really bad shot, just dead, short-side. Chipped it to 40, 30 feet. 2-putted there.
13 is a birdie. I hit 2-iron, 5-iron, 9-iron to about three feet just above the hole and made a good putt.
No. 14, drove it in the right green-side bunker and fatted it out of there. Then hit a pretty decent chip and left it about four feet and missed that.
And 15, hit it about just short of pin-high on left with a 6-iron and just made a great putt, probably 25 feet.
JULIUS MASON: Thanks very much, Chad.
