Duffy Waldorf


Q. What do you think of the way you played 17? That was quite special.

DUFFY WALDORF: Yeah, I mean, you kind of look in the bag. It's about 230 to the hole. There weren't a lot of clubs to pick. It was either a layup, or fire at it with a long iron. I had a really good lie with a long iron, but an uphill lie. So I figured, "Why not give it a shot?" I hadn't been making full swings all day. That was the only concern. I hadn't hit that full, high shot. But I hit it right on the button. Whether or not it came out good, I hit it the way I wanted to. And it did turn out nice.

Q. Half-way, you're in exactly the position you want to be in: Right up there.

DUFFY WALDORF: Yeah, it's great to be there. This course, it's a battle against it. This is a tough course to battle. You really have to go out there and survive it for a few days if you're not right on your game. Yesterday was survival, and today was a little better. Hopefully, you can stay in position and have a chance on Saturday and Sunday.

Q. Could you talk a little bit about your round today, the conditions out there.

DUFFY WALDORF: It was cold out there today. It was windy. Quite a big difference. Yesterday was just a beautiful day, perfect weather: Warm, light breeze. Today, it seemed a little more like Europe. You had to really watch your shots. The wind was a huge factor. The ball would get hit by the wind, and it was a matter of just trusting that the wind was there and then choosing the right line that would get you back in play.

Q. It seemed like a little bit of a story of just trying to survive out there in the afternoon.

DUFFY WALDORF: Well, there's no doubt it was kind of survival. Fortunately, for me, I got off to a pretty good start. After bogeying No. 3, I birdied four of the next five holes. So I kind of got ahead of the course then. The back side, I was just holding on. It wasn't getting any easier. I had a lot of tough iron shots to small greens. And they look small enough without the wind, but when you throw the wind in there, some of them look really small.
