Tom Watson


Q. Talk about your round today.

TOM WATSON: Well, my round today was punctuated by four shots about a foot from the hole. You like those types of putts for birdies, especially with I hit two of them with 4 irons, one with an 8 iron, one with a pitching wedge, and that made it pretty easy, but I did struggle a little bit more than yesterday from the standpoint of keeping the ball in play off the tee, and I had to scramble quite a bit, which I did.

I had a unique experience today. I hit a green in regulation and had a one putt par on the 5th hole today. On the 4th hole today I hit it on the green, putted it off the green, then I putted it in the hole for par. I had a one putt par with a green in regulation.

So things went right for me today. I'm very grateful for that. I hit quite a few good golf shots today and made a few putts, but really, the four birdies I made from about a foot. I wish I had a few more rounds like that in me.

Q. How's the driver? Where is the mindset with that right now?

TOM WATSON: Well, the driver is a little bit it's not as good as the other driver. I'm hitting it a little bit to the right now, and that's overcompensated a couple times today and hit it left, and I'm just going to have to stick with it until I find the swing that works with that particular driver.

Q. Seems like the two weeks hasn't affected you.

TOM WATSON: Four majors in four weeks, come on. I came in here obviously on a high. I played well last week and the week before that and the week before that, actually. I've had a very good stretch of golf right now, and I hope to continue. I hope I can keep it together and not get so careless.

Q. What do you do during your free time?

TOM WATSON: Well, the free time right now, I'd like to go to the aircraft museum. I may hit that this afternoon.

Q. You've been in this position many times. I mean, what do you do from here? Obviously two more rounds, but what is the mindset with that?

TOM WATSON: Well, the most important thing right now is to basically just do what I'm doing right now, and that is I'm hitting a lot of good golf shots. I have a trust in my golf swing. Every putting stroke is kind of an adventure, but it seems like most of them are going in. So I can't complain.
