Jordan Spieth


Q. What time did the charter get in?
JORDAN SPIETH: We landed at probably 10:30.

Q. In the morning?

Q. Places to stay.
JORDAN SPIETH: We have like a house/condo thing starting tonight. Last night we stayed in Edinburgh, just kind of relaxed.

Q. You weren't going to play yesterday at all?

Q. What did you do during the day?
JORDAN SPIETH: We went and had some lunch, and then took about a two or three-hour nap. And went back out and had some dinner, and just kind of walked around the downtown area.

Q. Did you go to the castle at all?
JORDAN SPIETH: No, we were just kind of walking the streets.

Q. You packed only through Sunday?
JORDAN SPIETH: I only packed for one week. I only packed for one week. That's the only week I packed for. I got in Greenbrier and then got in John Deere and then got here. I packed for one week and the Congressional heat. I had a rain jacket. These are the pants I wore Sunday; haven't been washed. Starting tomorrow everything about be fine.

Q. At what point were you able to learn something about Muirfield? Did you do any kind of homework?
JORDAN SPIETH: I've just heard that it's one of the best links courses in the world, top couple in the world. I can see why. It's fantastic. This is the tournament that I watch every year. It's really cool to watch, when you wake up in the morning and see guys in the afternoon and you see it's miserable for them, and you're sitting on the couch. Life is good, look at these guys. But this is cool.

Q. Did you know anything about Muirfield?
JORDAN SPIETH: I don't know a whole lot. A lot of it is in front of you, which is nice. It's a great golf course, but it's also in front of you, which is kind of rare. I play 18 tomorrow. I just couldn't do it today. My legs were still trying to recover. I got up early to come out here. But, yeah, from what I saw, I enjoy it. I enjoy links courses. I've been over to Scotland a couple of times, and played St. Andrews, Kingsbarns, Aberdeen, and had success. I really do enjoy playing links golf. I don't spin the ball very much. I fly it low. And I like to use my imagination chipping. It's just a fun test to me, as long as I stay out of the sand.

Q. Did you do any research to get some sort of feel for what you're going to be seeing? Did you look at any of the flyovers?
JORDAN SPIETH: No, like I said, I don't really have Internet. Not a whole lot I could do. I'm just kind of free-swinging, feeling really good from last week, and just trying to keep that going. I made a lot of birdies last week, at least the putts are going in.

Q. Are you going to chill out today?
JORDAN SPIETH: I'm going to go putt for a while. And then I'll eat and then just go to the house. My dad and brother and one of my friends are getting in today. So we'll all just probably get settled in, maybe go to sleep for a little bit. And find somewhere to get dinner.

Q. You played nine this morning?

Q. What's your caddie's name?
JORDAN SPIETH: Michael Greller, G-r-e-l-l-e-r.

Q. You turned pro in December, you had no status on any Tour, what did you think your season would look like?
JORDAN SPIETH: I thought that if I was playing well, I'd be playing Web.com Tour, which is the new pathway to get on Tour. And I figured that if I got off to a good start there in South America, which ended up happening, then I could play that way the whole year, and get on Tour next year. I went over to Puerto Rico and that week just changed everything.

Q. What's amazed you most about these past eight months?
JORDAN SPIETH: Everything.
