Q. How did Hartford become a collegiate golf power?
PATRICK HOWELL: It's a fluke. When I went to Hartford it was the I don't want to say the best team, but one of the best teams in New England. Just funny how it all ended up this way.
Jerry was a really good college player. A little unrefined to say the least. But he's always been a great player.
Tim is a fabulous putter. And I was kind of the freshman they picked on. But there's a lot of talent in New England.
But getting out here is kind of being in the right place at the right time and playing good at the right time. It could happen to anybody. It was just weird that it was three of us from Hartford.
Q. Who is the center and who were the wings, since you played hockey?
PATRICK HOWELL: I actually moved to defense. Jerry was you wanted Jerry in the corner scraping for the puck. I just kind of hung back. Jerry as not afraid to mix it up.
PATRICK HOWELL: Tim did not play hockey. He's too slow.
Q. Did you mix it up out there today?
PATRICK HOWELL: No. We had a great group. Ian made two eagles. I mean, he doubled his first he didn't even finish the first hole today and he's minus 3 points. I think that brought him down to 1 point or zero or something like that. He ended up with like 16 or 17 points.
THE MODERATOR: 17.
PATRICK HOWELL: Yeah. He had a huge day.
PATRICK SHEEHAN: You do. When you got two guys that you really like and you're kind of you know, it was a good group for me because everybody talks to each other and you're telling jokes. We all played pretty well yesterday and it just kind of continued today. Everybody's in a good mood. A guy makes a couple birdies and you just follow him up.
Q. When did the wind come up?
PATRICK HOWELL: We got I want to say we played about 7 holes before it really started to blow. 18 was pretty hard downwind when we got to it. That little spot on the left is 300 yards to hit it through, and normally I won't hit it that far uphill into the fairway. Today was pretty easy to do that.
Ian and Chris hit it up to the right and they had wedges in their hands on 18. We played about 7, maybe 8 holes before it started to pick up.
THE MODERATOR: Okay. Patrick, thanks.
