Simon Dyson


SIMON DYSON:  Really pleased.  It's a tough course and I think anything under par is pretty good around there.
But a shame to double the last like I did.  I didn't hit a bad drive really and it kicked right into the rough.  Wasn't a great line.  Maybe just tried to do a bit too much with it instead of just shifting it forward and it snagged way left on.
Me.  My bunker shot, I had about a 30‑yard bunker shot but was semi‑plugged and caught the bank and kind of spun into a semi‑plugged lie and left it in the bunker.  Thought I hit a good bunker shot for my fourth shot and didn't get any spin and release d about 12‑foot past and missed it coming back.
Easy to make a six.  You do all that hard work and drop two shots at the last.  Apart from that, I was really pleased.  Drove it good, iron play was good.  And when I needed my short game, it was there.  Looking forward to the weekend, all to play for.
I was first out yesterday, so we had a good nine or ten holes where the wind wasn't quite as strong, but it was strong today.  It was definitely maybe a two‑club wind.  There's a lot of out there that are cross‑winds, as well.  But the Tour have been great.  They have put a few tees up on certain holes, and they have certainly made it playable.  If we were off the backs, I don't think anyone would be under par if we were off the backs.  So they have been good this week.

Q.  I know it's history now but when you're finished, you said, well, 68 might be the best score of the day and suddenly shoots a 65 and everybody is trailing?
SIMON DYSON:  Unbelievable.  That's a fantastic score.  Does help when you have 19 putts which he did.  I think I'd have shot 64 if I'd had 19 putts.
No, it's still a really good score, and I honestly thought 4‑under would be the best score.  Apart from him, it was.

Q.  And 4‑under is a really good score at the halfway stage and you're in a fine position.
SIMON DYSON:  Yeah, felt really good today.  Yesterday I managed to get a 2‑under out of my game.  Yet today, I almost feel disappointed with a 2‑under with my game.  It felt really good.
So hopefully I can feel like that at the weekend.
