Jordan Spieth

Honolulu, Hawaii

Q. 4-under today, get to minus 12. I thought the front nine, just kind of struggled to get close to the flags. Got a little bit better on the second nine.
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, and that's -- the front nine, I think you have less scoring opportunities than you do on the back. You're forced to hit hybrids off tees and mid-irons into greens, and it's just a little tougher to get close. Proximity to the hole was a little off today.

My swing didn't feel quite as good as the last couple days. Putting stroke, still looking for answers. But honestly, did a great job grinding to 4-under today.

Had a couple opportunities that didn't quite go in. But all in all, I'm in a good position for a low one tomorrow. I'm not sure about winning the tournament anymore. I needed something, probably double what I shot today. I probably needed 8-under today to have much of a chance. But we'll go out tomorrow. Try to do what we did in Kapalua and try to come in from the back door and see what it does.

Q. You made a couple early birdies on the back side. 13 is the toughest hole on the golf course and that kind of bit you there, too.
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, it did. I I've played it well this week thus for. I had good look for birdie the first day and then I birdied it the second.

I really played my second shot, almost perfectly today and it needed to be about a yard further or a yard right and it just caught the corner of the bunker and went into a pretty difficult up-and-down. If it had obviously carried a bit more; I just played it a bit further right, that would have been a par or a chance at birdie.

That hole, really tough with this wind to hold the fairway. When you're hitting a long iron out of the rough, nothing is easy. It was okay. Nice bounceback on the next, and then tried to grab a few coming in. Was really happy to get the one on 18.
