Louis Oosthuizen


Q.  I talked to your caddie and he said you've been on the edges of the greens all week.  Obviously today you saw some fall in.
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  Yeah, I mean, I started out front nine, putted horribly again.  I felt like I hit the ball really well every day, but just made‑‑ well, I hit a few really close on the back nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, and then 14 made one long putt.  But yeah, I mean, I felt like I hit it pretty much the same as I did yesterday and the day before.  Yesterday two holes cost me‑‑ I three‑putted 16 and 17 and then I made that horrible 8 on 18.  I'm struggling to find consistency in the putter.  I'm either making them or putting horribly, which is pretty frustrating.

Q.  You've hit it pretty well for this stretch, though?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  Yeah, two weeks ago when I played in Korea I really hit it well, and I came here this week with a lot of confidence in ball‑striking and felt like I'm hitting it really good, giving myself loads of opportunities.  But yeah, I mean, you need to make putts around here, and the greens aren't easy.  But I felt the first two rounds the course was still playing‑‑ you could make loads of birdies.

Q.  You're playing two in Texas, right, the next two in Texas?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  I'm playing the next three, depending on when the baby comes.  But yeah, that's the plan, playing up to Memorial.

Q.  Memorial is on the schedule?

Q.  Presidents Cup definitely?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  Yeah, definitely want to play Memorial, but if the little one comes earlier, then I won't.

Q.  The putt on 15, what did you hit in there?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  I think that was a big putt to‑‑ knowing it's a par‑5 coming up.  The way I was hitting it, I was hitting it pretty close, giving myself a lot of opportunities.  With a par‑5, 16 and 17 with a good swing, you're going to give yourself a 10‑, 15‑footer for birdie.

Q.  Are you aware that the record for this tournament is 6‑under?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  No, I had no idea.

Q.  You do now?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  I do now, and now that putt is in my head, yeah.

Q.  You made seven in a row at one of the playoff events last year?
LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN:  Yeah, I did, in Boston, third round.
