Nick Dougherty


Q. 71, leaves you at the moment quite well placed as people are not scoring at the moment.
NICK DOUGHERTY: Yeah, maybe that's why I feel like I do about my round. I feel it's been a bit sloppy. Bogeys, I made four yesterday and seven birdies, and today I only had four birdies so the three bogeys pretty much cancelled them out. I'm relatively pleased with it.
I didn't play quite as well today. I played lovely yesterday. Sort of played good but I hit a couple of slack iron shots and my 3-wood wasn't too good.

Q. Where were the slack irons?
NICK DOUGHERTY: I hit bad shot on 6, a little half 6-iron really into that green and I pulled it left of the green.
7, I hit a good shot to about 5-foot and spun it off the green and had a horrible pitch shot from where I was.
And then on 14, I 3-putted. That was a poor iron shot, I hit on the front right and it was a difficult putt. I just wasn't quite there with the irons. And the 3-wood. I hit a lot 3-woods around this course, I'm hitting my driver great but doesn't ask for it on the holes half the time around here. Holes like 18, it's a gimmie birdie really after you hit the tee shot, downwind today, not my typical tee shot and anywhere on the fairway I can reach, so disappointed not to make birdie there.
But all in all mostly pleased because it was a tricky day and I think -- I don't know, the course doesn't seem difficult, but no one's really hammering it at the moment.

Q. Can't put your finger on why?
NICK DOUGHERTY: The greens are really tricky here, but just bogeys -- it's perfect, it's fairly calm, it's great condition, I don't know. Just can't put my finger on it to be honest. I pleased though as it keeps me in the hunt.
I don't really understand why because I thought it was tougher last year and I scored better on it. I don't know, it's disappointing and a little bit confused by it, but there's still plenty of time for the guys to get out. I think David got to 11 under last year after two rounds and I would be surprised if someone got there, but it's feasible unless if they shot 5 under on Thursday and made a really good one today.
Form is not too bad. I would have liked to get another one in the 60s today, but this still gives me a good chance on the weekend anyway.
