CIMB CLASSIC


October 25, 2013


Chris Stroud


KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

Q.テつ Good day out there.テつ You're in good position heading into the weekend.
CHRIS STROUD:テつ Yeah, pretty solid.テつ I left a few out there.テつ But it's a pretty short course, a lot of wedges.テつ I missed a few more fairways today.テつ But if you hit the fairways out here, you can make a lot of birdies.テつ Obviously, you've got to make the putts too.テつ But I left a few out there.テつ I'm in good position, that's all I can ask for.

Q.テつ It's an interesting course.テつ There is a lot of strategy that goes into a course like this with such tight fairways.テつ There are some holes that are shorter than others, but it's not a course that you can necessarily overpower, even though it's shorter than this.
CHRIS STROUD:テつ Right.テつ Even though the yardage shows that it's that short, because the fairways are so soft, it's still not playing that short.テつ I mean, there are a lot of short holes, some of the long holes are downhill, a lot of wedges, but when the fairways are this soft, it plays 200, 300, 400 yards longer.テつ But it's enjoyable.
You can ask anybody out here.テつ You miss a fairway, you're going to have a hard time make a par.テつ It's a great test of golf.テつ The greens are actually nice and firm.テつ Put some nice pins out there today.テつ But Keegan's setting a good pace out there.テつ And I believe that's where the number's going to be.テつ 4‑under, 5‑under a day is where the pace is going to be.テつ I'm going to do my best to see if I can get up to about 20 for the week.

Q.テつ This your first trip out this way?
CHRIS STROUD:テつ It is.テつ I got in two years ago and didn't come here, but I'm happy I came.テつ My wife and I came for the first time.テつ It was an easy trip.テつ Felt it wasn't too bad.テつ I adjusted pretty well.テつ I'm used to this nice, hot, humid, Houston weather, so I'm used to it.
