Kevin Stadler


Q.  What a sensational front nine with the five birdies, tell us about that start for you in those first nine holes?
KEVIN STADLER:  It was good.  I've been playing the first couple of holes poorly, feel like you should be able to get a couple of them.  Nice putt on 1, got off to a good start and birdied 3,4,5.  Ideal start to say the least.

Q.  Talk about 14, because you really attacked that front left hole location and just had a short putt there for a birdie at 14?
KEVIN STADLER:  It was a perfect number with 9‑iron, held it in against the wind and hit it just right.

Q.  Looks like you're feeling pretty confident with the putter?
KEVIN STADLER:  I was knocking them in the middle, so it's definitely good for the confidence to make a few.

Q.  How did it feel coming up 18, and all of the chants of "Stads," with one of the better rounds of the day.
KEVIN STADLER:  Yeah, it was cool.  Any time you play well in front of the crowds out here, it's a fun day.

Q.  Sunday, right in the thick of things here at The Barclays.
KEVIN STADLER:  There's so much golf left today, but obviously a need another good one to make any noise tomorrow.  Love where I'm sitting compared to where I was this morning.

Q.  I noticed you've gotten to the Deutsche Bank before but never gone past; so getting a good tournament under your belt this week and everything I guess is a good thing?
KEVIN STADLER:  Yeah, I've played‑‑ I don't know how many times I've played up there, a few times.  And honestly I've played pretty poorly every year in the Playoffs.  I've been just a little fatigued by this time of the year.  I tried to play a few less tournaments at the start of the year, and hopefully have a little game left.  Looking forward to next week and if I can get beyond that.
My results this summer have been pretty poor but I've been striking the ball really well.  Just kind of waiting for the putter to come around.  I hit it pretty good today; the first two days was the worst I hit it all summer and the putter kept me in.  It was nice to match them both up today.

Q.  Was there any one thing with the putter?
KEVIN STADLER:  Just mental.  Just need to see a few go in.  Put a lot of practice in early this week and nice to see a couple go in.

Q.  You're not one to change?
KEVIN STADLER:  I do, but I've had this putter all year long.  I didn't change anything.
