Jonathan Kaye


JONATHAN KAYE: I played pretty solid. I only had one bogey on the last hole. It was kind of a bad swing, 9-iron in the middle of the fairway. Other than that, I played pretty solid, made a few putts, and didn't make any big mistakes.

I bogeyed 18, birdied 17, two-putted from middle of the green, I guess.

Q. Did you hit driver?

JONATHAN KAYE: I did. 16, I hit an 8-iron to about ten feet, made birdie.

15, three-putted for par.

14, made a 15-footer for birdie, hit a 7-iron in.

13, knocked it on in two with a 3-iron and two-putted.

12, two-putt for par.

11, hit a 7-iron to ten feet, made it for birdie.

10, two-putt for par.

I birdied No. 3, made about a 15-footer for birdie on 3.

And I made another birdie on 6 from about 14.

Q. Can I ask you what you hit on 15?


I like to play here. It is my home, but unfortunately, we don't get to see the course in this kind of condition except for this week so I don't really feel like I have any advantage.

Q. There are some pretty good scores up there. Are the conditions receptive to good scoring?

JONATHAN KAYE: Definitely. The fairways are starting to run a little bit. The greens are still soft so you can fire at the pins. They're rolling perfect, so if you put a good stroke on it, it's going to go in.

Q. How much do those changes at 14 and 15 change the way you played the holes?

JONATHAN KAYE: It didn't change the way I played it, because I hit driver on both of them anyway. You've got to hit a little better on 14. They had the tees up a little bit today. I could see if you didn't hit a good ball there, it could play a lot different.

15 definitely plays a lot longer. I think it's not as exciting as it used to be. A lot more guys are more apprehensive to go for the green in two from 235 plus. It's kind of a small target.

The changes are good. 16 is nice. 9 is nice. I don't have any problems with the changes.

Q. What did you have left for your second shot at 16?

JONATHAN KAYE: 260-something to the pin, 235 to the front or something.

Q. Would you always make that play from 260?

JONATHAN KAYE: No, I just thought the wind was going with me and I only had to hit it about 225 to get it over the water, so I figured that would be my one good shot and I'd go for it.

Q. Are most guys going for it as the weekend goes on?

JONATHAN KAYE: Potentially, unless the fairways firm up. You know, that back tee, when you hit a good drive from there, you land into an upslope, so it's hard to get a lot of roll. If you really poke one out there, I think the longer hitters will be going for it, for sure.
