Adam Scott


Q.  Just one bogey.  Well played.
ADAM SCOTT:  I played well again today, and obviously to have any chance to contend tomorrow I had to make some sort of a move, and it all kind of came together around the turn, and I played fairly solid.  Disappointing to drop one coming in because I'm making a habit of that, but I picked one up on the last, and that was important.

Q.  Around the turn is where this course needs to be gotten, doesn't it?
ADAM SCOTT:¬† Yeah, it is.¬† If you're hitting good shots, at the moment with it so soft, you can get this course.¬† But around the turn is a big opportunity.¬† You can get a couple looks at eagle.¬† They didn't go for me today, but two‑putt birdies always help.

Q. ¬†Your iron play had to be stellar because you only made one 15‑footer all day.
ADAM SCOTT:  No, it's been really solid.  It's been good all week and last week, and today is the first day that I've gotten any rhythm with the putter, and it took missing a few greens early on and I had to scramble to actually make some putts.  But that was kind of a blessing in disguise, I think.

Q.  This ought to be a fun Sunday, huh?
ADAM SCOTT:  It's going to be, yeah.  The crowd is pretty rowdy, and it's an incredible leaderboard.  It's going to be fun.  I'm glad I put myself in this position.

Q.  Just talk about your round.
ADAM SCOTT:  I played well again.  You know, I putted nicely today for the first time in a couple weeks, and it took missing a few greens early on and me having to chip and putt and actually have to make a couple putts, and I got going with it, around the turn made some nice putts and left myself a lot of chances.  But I needed to do something today to even have a shot at being in contention tomorrow.

Q.¬† What do you make of these last two, three weeks where it almost looks like a golf all‑star game on the leaderboard?¬† It seems like it's been that way a lot.
ADAM SCOTT:  Yeah, I'm surprised it hasn't been more like that, but I guess it's an important few weeks bunched together, and seeing how motivated everyone really is to make the run to East Lake.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
ADAM SCOTT:¬† I'm hitting the ball beautiful.¬† I have for a long time this year.¬† But everything else today, I hit some great shots with the irons, some long irons, some 3‑woods into greens, on 11, and it was just really solid stuff, which is a nice way to play.¬† If I can do it again tomorrow, if I'm going to give myself a chance, I'm going to have to go really low again.

Q.  Talk about wanting a win and being in position to get it.
ADAM SCOTT:  Yeah, I'm not in the best position, but coming from a few back seems to be the way to go at the moment in golf.  You never know, if I can get off to a hot start and put myself in the mix, there are opportunities out there.  We've seen a bunch of 64s made or even lower.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
ADAM SCOTT:¬† I hit a 3‑iron into 15 that actually ended up missing the green, but it was just a beautiful shot.¬† It pitched right next to the hole and just kind of kept trickling and dribbled all the way down.
