IAN POULTER: Not really. I hit a soft 9 iron, bad hop through the back of the green, made bogey. And then just steady. I wasn't playing fantastically well, but I was rolling in balls one after another after another. Yesterday I couldn't seem to buy one.
I had a good birdie on 10, driver, 5 wood to the middle of the green, two putt birdie.
Birdied the next par 5.
Then a great 7 iron on 17 to about 12 feet and rolled it in.
So 4 under.
I played so well yesterday, I just thought, you know, just don't go after it, and I hit 9 iron straight at the pin, pushed it a touch. Then I tried to keep it on the right, the safe side, and then just rolled a couple in.
Q. The experience at the U.S. Open a month ago will help you going into this weekend?
IAN POULTER: Yeah, I hit it on the right side of the pins. You know, hitting it to 15, 20 feet was close, anything on the green, and you're going to leave yourself a half decent chance. Especially from 15, 20 feet with how good they're rolling.
