Paul McGinley


PAUL McGINLEY:  Obviously the big, gaping thing in the week is what happened yesterday, five 3‑putts.  I don't think I've ever had five 3‑putts in a round of golf in my life before.  I lost my speed on the greens and lost my confidence.  But that was a good reaction today to come back and shoot the score I did today, so I'm pleased.
Obviously I've got to give some thought as to what happened yesterday:  Why did I lose my speed, why did I lose my confidence.  I'll give some thought to that over the next few days but get ready for next week.
But it was a good reaction today.  I had a good think about my putting last night, and the greens were ‑‑ a bit of moisture on the greens today.  They were not as dry as they were yesterday, and when there's a bit of moisture on them, they run a bit smoother.

Q.  These are difficult conditions once again?  I know we've had varying conditions all across the week.
PAUL McGINLEY:  Difficult conditions, difficult breeze.  Yeah, to be honest, I like the breeze so I I'm hoping it's going to be breezy next week, as well, too, which I think there's a good chance of that.

Q.  I presume you take satisfaction from the face you've pulled yourself back into the good placings.
PAUL McGINLEY:  Very much so, yeah, very much so.  Looks like it will be a Top‑10 again, and that will be three Top‑10s in four tournaments and a long time since I've done that.
It's a real thrill to be playing good golf again and to be back up at the right end of the leaderboard.  It's been a few barren years and it's a real thrill and a lot of excitement.

Q.  And to elaborate on Portrush, it's good to go there in good form?
PAUL McGINLEY:  It's good to go there in good form.  I'm looking forward to it.  It's one of my favourite golf courses in the whole world.  I've played there a lot over the years and played there last month with my son.  I'm really looking forward to playing it.
