Charl Schwartzel


Q.  How does that feel today?
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:¬† I mean, it was a little disappointing.¬† Got off to a really good start.¬† I mean, on, what was it, 16, I thought which was a really good shot at the fairway came up way short.¬† It's very difficult‑‑ I found it very difficult to judge the wind on this golf course.¬† It feels very inconsistent, so it was hard to pull clubs.
I made a bogey feeling like I haven't hit a bad shot, and it sort of felt like it broke the momentum.  I just didn't get it going on my back nine.  When I finally made a birdie on No. 7, I gave it back on 9, I was thinking birdie on 9 and end up walking off with a 5.
But 1‑under is what it is.¬† I really feel like I can shoot a low score out there.¬† So just stay patient and see.

Q.  It started off very quiet with the wind, did it pick up?  Could that have been a contributing factor?
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:  Definitely.  I would say that's probably what it's going to do the whole week.  The mornings will be quiet and then pick up in the afternoon.
It's hard, like I said, with all these trees around, it's probably constant up above, but inside, it's swirling a lot.  So it's very hard to get the right club, and on these greens, where you need sort of quite a bit of precision to hit the right side of these slopes.  It can be difficult if you start pulling the wrong clubs.
But there is a good score out there, that's for sure.

Q.¬† Five shots is it at the moment‑‑
CHARL SCHWARTZEL:¬† Five shots is nothing.¬† There's so many holes to go.¬† It's just a start.¬† You can lose it in the first round but you can't win it in the first round.¬† So it's an okay score for me.¬† I'm not out of it whatsoever.¬† Like I said, I feel like I'm playing good enough to make a good score.¬† You know, 7‑, 8‑under is out there.¬† But we'll just see what happens.
