Chris Riley


Q. You birdied all the par 5s today?

CHRIS RILEY: Usually I struggle on those because my length isn't my strong point. That's usually where I get beat is on the par 5s, and today I made four birdies on them.

Q. Do you think that's the key on this golf course, that you have to get the par 5s?

CHRIS RILEY: The key I think here is putting the ball in the fairway. It doesn't really matter the length out here. I played with a long hitter today, Henrik, and he had to hit a lot of 3 woods.

I was driving it well. Length is not a big factor out here. I mean, it always helps, but putting the ball in the fairway is the big thing.

Q. Are you surprised at this course?

CHRIS RILEY: Yeah, I am. I don't know what's low, but I thought 6 under would have been in the Top 5. I don't know what place it's in, but I'm happy with it.

Q. What was the key for your round?

CHRIS RILEY: Really the first hole. I missed an 8 iron right of the green on the par 5, the 10th, and holed it out for birdie, and that really got me going. I think I made seven birdies.

Q. Can you talk about your play recently and how you felt coming into the event?

CHRIS RILEY: I felt really good coming into the event. Over the last year I haven't been playing good, but over the last two months I've really been playing good and getting no result. I'm feeling really comfortable out there. I've had a couple Top 5s in these tournaments before, so I've been there. I think I can handle it.

Q. It seemed like most of the low scores came this morning. I can't ask you if you played tougher because you didn't have the early experience, but do you sense the wind picking up?

CHRIS RILEY: Not really. I didn't think it played tremendously hard. The greens were soft and they were still in great shape. No, I don't think there was an advantage either way.
