Charl Schwartzel


Q.  Good round today.  Impressive victory, I believe, right?  Just talk about how it went out there.
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:  I played really solid.  I didn't make any mistakes at all.  Gary unfortunately hit a few bad shots at ‑‑ he gave me the holes.  But I just ‑‑ I think I kept applying pressure.  I hardly missed a golf shot.  It was just a good solid round of golf.

Q.  Talk about any keys to an early match.  I know it's a sprint here with 18 holes of match play, just the keys to getting out early?
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:  Yeah, of course.  I mean, you know, to be fair on the second hole, it looked like Gary was in the driver's seat.  He hit a beautiful second shot in there, and I was just to the right of the green.  I ended up chipping it in and he misses the putt.  So I go 1 up and that's a big momentum swing.
The very next hole, he's in the water and I make par.  So I have got 2 up through three, where you probably would have thought anything level or something like that.  So I was 2 up through three very early on, and from there it was just basically ‑‑ I got up early on.  I won the 5th hole as well, so I was 3 up.  From there, I didn't miss a green.  Kept hitting good shots.  He made a few errors that I don't think he normally would have made.

Q.  Sound like everything you want to do in match play.  That's the game plan?
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:  Exactly.  You play to what your opponent is doing, so I was ‑‑ I was hitting it first, obviously, the whole time I hit the ball so far.  So I was ‑‑ I kept hitting good shots into the greens and then he hit a few bad ones and that's how I won my holes.

Q.  Are you looking forward to the next round?  Just kind of get some rest?
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:  I played really, really solid, so I feel very good.  I'm looking forward to tomorrow.
