Rocco Mediate


ROCCO MEDIATE: I played really solid today. I guess I lost my line on 18. I was looking in the wrong place, and I hit it off a hair and see you later.
I just -- I'm not sure the wind was straight, a little bit more cross and I just made a bad swing. But it was because of me, not my back, I mean.

Q. You talked a lot about that.
ROCCO MEDIATE: I couldn't be happier. It was disappointing, hit a beautiful second drive, good 8-iron. I almost made a 5.
What are you going to do? 10, 12 drives in the fairway, go on. That's all I can say.

Q. You mentioned there was a crosswind today. Did you expect the wind to change?
ROCCO MEDIATE: Just moved a tad. But just enough to where I only saw the golf course once or twice. Pretty much didn't take my time and think about it. I just thought -- I started on the same line but drew a little bit and knocked it straight down.
It was crap. I can't say much about it. Believe it or not, I played nicely today. Very pleased. I'm very pleased.

Q. Fifteen years ago you double the last hole, what would have been your attitude?
ROCCO MEDIATE: I would have been devastated. I can't believe I did that.

Q. When you say -- you said you don't care anymore?
ROCCO MEDIATE: I could care less. Decent score, and if you shoot 3-under, I would have taken it. Little visual mistake and it cost me. Didn't quite know enough what I was looking at. It's alright. Played very solid. Things are fine.

Q. Is it going to be -- keep the pedal to the metal?
ROCCO MEDIATE: Looks like it. I had a lot of putts that I just missed today, too. But, yeah, it's going to be -- unless the weather changes, which it could. I guess it's supposed to get shitty tomorrow. I don't know.
You just deal with it. Trust me. I'm happy to play golf. I make a double here or there, I'm fine. Not another double.

Q. Was a bad drive on 18?
ROCCO MEDIATE: I was looking in the wrong place. I thought I could go down the left center. The wind was more cross today, and I just played it straight downwind yesterday. I made a mistake, a real mental mistake. I can't complain about it. I won't help.

Q. How was the wind today?
ROCCO MEDIATE: Little different direction a couple holes. Turned a little bit but nothing bad, wasn't that strong. 18 is strong because it's out there.

Q. It's actually more right now?
ROCCO MEDIATE: Yeah. With the front coming. Good golf course. Perfect condition. Fairways were perfect. Rough is just fine. Hit it in the rough a couple times. It wasn't like hitting it on the green. Pin placements on the greens make it interesting. Much better than if it was 3 feet high.

Q. You think you're doing the right thing?
ROCCO MEDIATE: Absolutely doing the right thing. Absolutely doing the right thing. I wish it was firmer but can't do that because it rains so much. Firm would be really okay. Catch the weather next year when it's firm. I can't complain.
