Ian Leggatt


TODD BUDNICK: We have Ian Leggatt, 9-under, 204, two strokes off the lead. Ian, kind of a roller-coaster day for you but you hung in there and kept it under par.

IAN LEGGATT: Yes, I played pretty solid. Although I didn't drive it quite as well, I did yesterday. I did miss a couple of putts. I started out with a 3 putt on the first hole, but I'm pretty happy with 69.

TODD BUDNICK: You bounced back every time you had a bogey, but how hard is it to keep that confidence going when you are having trouble like that?

IAN LEGGATT: Well, you know, especially tomorrow, everybody is so negative about the weather like we might not even play, so you got to be real offensive and I was trying to be and I made a bad swing off of 15, I guess, the par-5 is just --there's a house over there with people yelling and screaming, got set off there, hit a bad tee shot. That was disappointing because you have to make a birdie there. I already bogeyed every one of the other par 5s. (Inaudible).

Q. You are putting in the middle of the downpour; how did you stay focused there?

IAN LEGGATT: Just kind of took the thrill out of the whole thing thinking maybe we may not play tomorrow and Billy hits it a couple inches, I was thinking I would have a putt there to tie for the lead. It wasn't as fast as I thought it was. I had a very similar putt on Thursday for birdie from there and it was a lot quicker. I just thought it was going to have more speed on it there. It was kind of slow.

Q. Was that because of the rain?

IAN LEGGATT: I don't think so. It hadn't rained enough yesterday. It was distracting.

TODD BUDNICK: You had it in your mind that could be a putt for a third-place finish?

IAN LEGGATT: Or second, you know, thinking Billy -- when I hit the shot I hit as good a shot as I could hit in there trying to make eagle, thinking where Billy hit his, and up and down, wasn't for sure. He hit a great bunker shot there so that might have been the difference.

TODD BUDNICK: Thanks, Ian.
