Eduardo Romero


Q. Eduardo, let's start with a great round. You really made it happen almost all day.
EDUARDO ROMERO: Well, I'm playing very good today. I'm playing fantastic today. And then I make a good putt. And then I have a good lucky shot also. Because sometimes the nerves are a little unlucky, but I played good.
I had good concentration, I put the ball in the fairway and I'm swinging good. I'm swinging fantastic. I changed a little thing just before today and I swing fantastic. Very confident. A lot of confidence with my swing.

Q. The wind wasn't -- well it's kicking up now, but how was the wind today?
EDUARDO ROMERO: It's not a lot this morning. It was perfect this morning. But I love to play with wind. I like to play courses like this because I'm playing for 22 years in European then Venezuela is similar to links golf courses over there and then a lot of wind and big rougher and long golf course. And it's good. Today was a very nice day.

Q. You hit a lot of putts today. How confident are you with the putter?
EDUARDO ROMERO: It was a lot of confidence with my putter. Just missed a couple good ones, but I make a good one, long one. But, you know, I'm very happy with my swing, my game and I know it's a long way to go, it's three more rounds, but I'm still there. I'm still there.

Q. Can't let you go without talking about that eagle. I know it was going pretty hard when it hit the hole, but --
EDUARDO ROMERO: Yeah, it was. I know it was very hard. But it was a lucky putt. Hit in the middle of the hole and made it. But if not, it's probably off the green. But it's just great. I make eagle and it's good.

Q. And obviously you played the last two weeks you've been talking about your friend and now we're spending a little time talking about you and your game.
EDUARDO ROMERO: Yeah, that's good. It's good. I'm probably -- I tell the guys, if you win two U.S. Open in one month it was very fantastic. But this is a long way to go. I don't want to say that, but I'm still there. I'm still there.

Q. 6-under par, do you think that's what's going to have to keep going here?
EDUARDO ROMERO: Oh, yes. And, well, I played great today. I missed, I thought I missed a good putt, but I made a good one. But it's just started, it's a long way to go. But my swing's good, my concentration is good. I come here to win this tournament. I'm prepared for win this tournament. And then I see what happens this opening round is good.
