Justin Rose


Q.  A big move towards the big money?
JUSTIN ROSE:  Yeah, for sure, absolutely.  Just being here at this tournament is a good feeling.  You get to play, I think 21 of the top 22 players in the world are here this week, so that gets your juices flowing to be able to play in a tournament like this and compete against the best.
Yeah, from the FedExCup point of view, it's a position of having nothing to lose, really.  Obviously, I'd like to be much higher up the rankings and that's the scenario from last year.  Last year I didn't factor in the tournament, and this year maybe being a little bit looser out there is going to help me.  I think I've only got this tournament on my mind.  A lot of the other guys have two trophies on their minds.
So I think I'll steal it if I end up winning both of them.  But it will be nice to know.  I'm happy for Bill Haas last year.

Q.  (Indiscernible)?
JUSTIN ROSE:  On 18, it's hard to tell, really.  I probably hit it 15 feet left of the cup.

Q.  (Indiscernible)?
JUSTIN ROSE:  The best part of the year was one that really everything matched up as I planned.

Q.  (Indiscernible) Does that suit you?
JUSTIN ROSE:  Definitely.  I think I would say it's less of a bomber's course.  You've got to keep a much bigger premium of hitting it on the fairway here.  I didn't do a great job of that today.  I only hit 7 fairways, so I think that's something I can improve on in the next few rounds.  If I keep it on the fairway, I feel my iron game and short game is coming around.
I'm beginning to get some confidence with the putter.  So it was nice to get out of today with a hot start, considering that.

Q.  Is it nice to play at a really nice rhythm and nice pace?
JUSTIN ROSE:  Yeah, you feel like you're speeding through the rounds, which is good.  Didn't wait on any shots out there.  It was a really fun round of golf.  Hunter played solidly.  He drove it really well.  He had a solid finish to shoot 68.  So the pair of us being 6‑under for the round was a fun day.

Q.  Do you look at leaderboards, or is it too early, Justin?
JUSTIN ROSE:  I kind of looked at the leaderboards to gauge how the course was playing and how the boys were doing out there, and obviously, I realized it was time to be patient.  No one was really going low.  1 or 2‑under is going to be a good score today, so I always had that in the back of my mind.
