Q. Corey, thank you so much for joining us. Congrats on a good week. Could you just tell us how you felt today, physically, mentally, going into the final round.
COREY CONNERS: I felt pretty good. I was excited with the position I was in, how I felt with my game. There was definitely some nerves out there. I wasn't able to get the putts to fall in to kind of get some positive momentum and settle me down a bit, but I just tried to plug away and be patient.
It was definitely more of a battle than I'd hoped for, but, yeah, it was a good learning experience.
Q. How do you now recharge and reset for Tokyo?
COREY CONNERS: Yeah, something I'm looking forward to a lot. I'm really excited to represent Canada at the Olympics, and I'll just take a few days off, work on the game a little bit.
Excited to get to Tokyo. It will be fun. Obviously, playing with my good friend Mack. He's had a nice week as well. I think we're both going to be pretty excited, and it will be fun in Tokyo.
Q. Corey, nice week. I'm just wondering if you could sum up the major championship season as a whole. Missed cut aside at the U.S. Open, some very solid results at the majors. What is it about the big tournaments that seem to agree with your game?
COREY CONNERS: I feel like they're all really good tests of golf, and I feel like my game has been trending in a positive direction as well. It's nice to have decent results there. Probably say I left each one a little sour, left a few shots out there, definitely room for improvement as of this week.
But overall, it's been pretty solid and fun to be kind of in the mix in three of the four majors this year.
