Brandt Snedeker


BRANDT SNEDEKER: I don't know what we're supposed to do to hit a green. I saw it this morning, the guys this morning were struggling with keeping it on the green. Justin hit a beautiful bunker shot and spun it and barely stayed on the green. That one got out of control, out of hand. That's gonna happen. There's no way to control it during the course of the day.

Q. Did you feel anywhere you (inaudible) --
BRANDT SNEDEKER: On the green? No, no. I don't think so. I don't think so. I don't think if anybody -- Justin hit a beautiful wedge bunker shot on the front of the green. Landed it short of the green and spun it. And it barely hung on before it went in the bunker. I don't know how you're supposed to do it.

Q. (Inaudible.)
BRANDT SNEDEKER: You can probably look at it at the end of the day and see how many guys hit the green. I'm sure it's very few. And we've got sand wedges in the green. I don't know if that's fair or not. We all had to play the same golf course. They need to put some water on it. Everything is dead. You've got fairways that are running 15 in some spots. You can't stand up, you can slip. It's just really, really firm.

Q. Does it come down to more luck in some cases?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: No, everybody has got -- I don't know, that's a good question. I think all British Opens in some sense come down to the bounces, so this is no different.

Q. Are the conditions a humbling factor involved?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: No, it's part of it. You're going to have to deal with that in a Major. If you're going to play in a Major, you have to deal with this. Guys did a great job. Some guys shot under-par scores or around par. I think anything around par was a good score. You can't complain about it. Guys survived it, so it's not like it's unplayable.

Q. For conditions like this, Saturday and Sunday, is it possible to make a good round?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: Yeah, I think there's a good possibility somebody can shoot even par, and the course gets a little bit out of control and the wind starts blowing, they might get a good number. I think there's a huge possibility for that to happen.

Q. How much of a grind factor is it?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: Beyond anything I've ever played in.

Q. In terms of what though? Specifically more than anything?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: Just because it's very, very hard to hit a ball where you're supposed to and very, very hard to keep the ball where you're supposed to. I was always constantly frustrated because you think you're pulling off the right shot and you're not getting rewarded.

Q. Is this the most demanding Open you've played?
BRANDT SNEDEKER: Demanding, mentally-wise, for sure.

Q. (Inaudible.)
BRANDT SNEDEKER: Not one tonight. It didn't work last night, so I'm going to try something different tonight.
