Steve Stricker


Q. Were you in the hazard on 18?
STEVE STRICKER: Yeah, I was about a foot in the hazard on the bank.

Q. Not in the water?
STEVE STRICKER: Yeah, not in the water. We could have probably tried to hit a 6-iron or something like that, you know, to the right of the green, maybe in one of the bunkers or something like that, but I figured I like hitting wedges and I feel like I'm a decent wedge player, so I just took my lumps and laid it up, and I laid it up to a good yardage. I had a perfect yardage, about 103 yards to the hole, so it worked out.

Q. You were certainly in a zone on the front there. What was working for you?
STEVE STRICKER: Yeah, all day. I hit a lot of good shots today. I had a lot of birdie opportunities, had a lot of birdie opportunities on the back, too. Some I hit good putts on, some I didn't, but you can't complain. I left a couple out there, but I made a lot and did a lot of good things today.

Q. Was it tough getting back into it after the delay?
STEVE STRICKER: You know, it wasn't for me because I had a good round going, so I still tried to keep my concentration and keep trying to be aggressive. I really had nothing to lose. I wasn't scaring the leaders at all, so I really had nothing to lose and just wanted to keep trying to make birdies and be aggressive.

Q. (Inaudible.)
STEVE STRICKER: I don't think so. Four shots and --

Q. You must feel awfully good going forward, though?
STEVE STRICKER: Very good. It's been a good start to the year. I've got a four-in-a-row stretch coming up here, New Orleans, Houston and The Masters, so I'm trying to build up towards The Masters, and this is a good start.

Q. Are you happy you don't have to come back tomorrow?
STEVE STRICKER: Very much so. We can get out of here and we're going to catch a plane tonight and go to New Orleans. We'll get there tonight and get a head start on next week. It's a bonus to finish and be done with it.
