THE BARCLAYS


August 24, 2013


Jordan Spieth


JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY

Q.  Jordan, can you assess your round?
JORDAN SPIETH:¬† Yeah, today I hit it solid.¬† My putter felt really, really great in this round and I started to putt‑‑ halfway this morning, made a couple putts that went in and got a couple birdies.¬† Saw the ball go in, and made a good bogey save on my first hole.
I was thinking about my speed control, hitting very solid on these greens and I was able to control the pace.

Q.¬† On 16, a little bit of fire on that‑‑
JORDAN SPIETH:¬† Well, yeah, you know what, it was a bad decision off the tee.¬† If I hit driver on to the green, it's actually a pretty easy up‑and‑down.¬† Just kind of bailed and didn't play the smart shot, just bad decisions.¬† If the execution is the problem¬Ė inaudible ¬Ė if I'm going to make bad swings, but just three really bad decisions in a row.
Yeah, definitely, hitting the tee shot in the bunker on the par5 on 15, but other than that, didn't really have any problems today.

Q.  (Inaudible.).
JORDAN SPIETH:¬† Just the fact‑‑ make the next event or making a certain amount of points.¬† Just go out there and get on top of the leaderboard and try to make some birdies.

Q.¬† Do you approach tomorrow like any other event, or does it feel different or different mind‑set?
JORDAN SPIETH:  Yeah, I don't think the wind is going to be up.  I wish it would be.  So hopefully it blows.  The greens are just getting faster and faster.  I know they were faster today, very slick.  Pins will be hard.
I'm going to have to play smart golf tomorrow, and obviously a round like I shot today is going to be a really good round.  I don't think it ends up winning tomorrow, but I think I go out with the goal to try to hit as many greens as possible and focus on my speed to try to post a few under and see what happens.
