Q. Talk about playing in your own backyard here. How much fun is that? How does it feel playing in front of family and friends?
CHAD CAMPBELL: It's a lot of fun. It's a little bit hectic sometimes, but it's a lot of fun playing in front of friends and family. Maybe put a little bit added pressure on myself because I want to play good. They don't get to see me play all the time, so it's nice to be able to come out and play well for them.
Q. What have the crowds been like for you? You have played opposite times of Annika the first two days, benefit to you do you think or to be able to relax or do you still notice the swelling of the crowds around your group?
CHAD CAMPBELL: No, I've got a lot of people here just like I said, full of friends and family. And I don't know if it's really an advantage or not. Not having a crowd. I like playing in front of crowds. If they're there, good; if they're not, if you don't have any people following you, that means that you're not doing too good, I guess.
Q. You and Judd Burkett go back a few years. Describe your relationship as you as the pro and he as the caddy as the second year on TOUR?
CHAD CAMPBELL: Yes, sir. I think it goes back to what I said before, seeing the golf courses, now we both seen them twice, it makes it a lot easier, just the knowledge that we can both get from seeing every pin and knowing where to hit it, where not to hit it on each course too each pin.
Q. Why do you think you were so well prepared to come out here and do so well to in the beginning. I know you kind of went the long way. How much do you think that paid off for you?
CHAD CAMPBELL: I think it helped out a lot. Playing four years on the Hooter's Tour and then one year on the Nationwide. I really wouldn't have changed the way I went about it. I learned a lot of stuff. I learned how to win. Was fortunate enough to win quite a few times on the Hooter's and then also on the Nationwide. So hopefully that will pay off for me.
Q. Did you tell yourself that during those years that this was the way to go?
CHAD CAMPBELL: No, I wasn't telling myself that. But I was saying that was the hardest time to be so patient. Because every year I would go to the TOUR school and a couple times I got through second stage, but I always got through first. But it was -- it's not any fun missing second stage, so.
Q. Did you ever any real close calls like the last hole or anything like that in second stage?
CHAD CAMPBELL: I was always within two or three shots of making it.
TODD BUDNICK: All right. Thank you, Chad.
CHAD CAMPBELL: All right. Thanks, guys.
