Q. I know you don't want to look too far ahead but with the premium on accuracy on this course and you being one of the most accurate drivers on the TOUR, do you see this as a great opportunity for you?
ALLEN DOYLE: You know, I feel that's a strong point each week. Of course it will probably be a little stronger this week. But you know, it doesn't matter how much -- I missed three fairways today, and they were probably a combined total of a foot, you know, and I had trouble hitting the ball out like everybody else did. You notice, there were two of them I even wondered why they didn't run along the cutline and how they got in the rough, you know, by an inch, you know, where you feel that you drove the ball good. And, you know, the guy that misses the fairway by 20 yards is no worse penalized -- you know, than I did, when I missed by a half an inch. It's that penal.
You know, I don't know if it's possible to go around here without not missing a fairway. But that's almost what you feel you have to do.
Q. A lot of guys talked about playing defensively yesterday; do you feel that you had to play defensively today?
ALLEN DOYLE: No, I didn't to start off because of the softness of the green. We had a shot in 11, after I birdied 10. We had 120 yards. It was a right-left with a hole behind it. You knew you could hit that pitching wedge and if you did fly it past the hole it wasn't going to go anywhere. Whereas yesterday, if I would have hit a similar shot I came up about ten feet short of the hole today. It jumped up and spun back a little and yesterday, on that hole I hit a 9-iron. I was 134, I think. It hits about 2 paces short of pin-high and I am in the back fringe.
So you know, knowing the greens are going to be in the condition they were in, you felt like, you know, that if you hit a pretty good shot into the green that it couldn't get away from you.
