Craig Stadler


Q. Was it just a matter of trying it make things happen out there and getting bit while trying to do it?

CRAIG STADLER: I hit a lot of good shots for shooting 84.

Q. You shot 83.

CRAIG STADLER: No, they had the score wrong. It was 84. But that was a good putt on 18. My highest round as a professional ever was an 84. So I did not set a new record.

Q. What were the conditions like out there?

CRAIG STADLER: It sucked. The conditions weren't quite as bad as my golf, but it was almost.

Q. John wanted to know why you played 27 holes instead of 18?

CRAIG STADLER: Yeah, no kidding.

Q. Was it that difficult?

CRAIG STADLER: No, I mean it's played this tough before, but obviously it got going bad early and I made a million on 4. Didn't hit that bad a tee shot and then misjudged a little wedge.

And then just kind of misjudged the wind after that a few holes and after that it was just get it over with. And I didn't get it over with very well. I made a hell of a 4 on 17. I hit the one in the water on 17 and then hit the next one up there and made 4.

Q. Do you have any four putts?

CRAIG STADLER: I didn't even have any three putts. I just hit it like crap all day.

Q. Does that mean you're looking forward to coming back tomorrow?

CRAIG STADLER: Oh, I can't wait. I wish it was this afternoon. I would love to go out this afternoon and get it over with.

Q. Ready to slam the trunk?

CRAIG STADLER: You could say that, yeah. Yeah, I will come out and go through the motions and try to play a good round tomorrow, but it's for absolutely nothing other than trying to shoot a good score after today and convince myself that I'm not a 20 handicap.

Q. How do you makeup ground in a situation like this if you're trying to catch these leaders, what do you do?

CRAIG STADLER: You just got to stay patient and try to keep the ball in play and just try to, on a day like today, play more with the wind than try to fight it. Even par would be a damn good score today and no matter where you were today, you make the cut at 5 over, you happen to shoot two or 3 under, you're going to be back in pretty good position.

So just be patient and try to hit some golf shots, which I was patient, I just didn't hit any golf shots.

Q. How did you feel on the practice range? Did you feel okay?


Q. So you didn't feel this coming on?

CRAIG STADLER: It was one of the most enjoyable days.

Q. When is the last time you shot 84?

CRAIG STADLER: I believe Jacksonville. 15 years ago.

Q. What was the wind blowing that day?

CRAIG STADLER: I don't remember. I don't know when it was. I know where it was, but not when.
