Jordan Spieth


JORDAN SPIETH:  I got to control the speed better on the greens.  That's what killed me the last two weeks.  When I made mistakes it was because I just couldn't control my first‑putt speed.  So I've got some work to do there.  I had a bogey‑‑ a couple bogeys, one right next to the green on a par‑5.  All in all there's a couple rusty mistakes.  There's no rust, but it was one of those kind of days where I really should have been 3‑under.  I was hitting it good enough to shoot 3‑under out here, even in this wind.  I just let a couple get to me but came back with a couple birdies.

Q.  What did happen on 8?
JORDAN SPIETH:  I just didn't judge it right.  The greens are firm, and I was‑‑ you know, and it was something I worked on hard with my coach last week was just pitches across greens because I've had pretty much that same shot a lot this year.  You know, I was leaving them all short, so I decided to go ahead and be a little aggressive on that one and ended up running too far, and I was too aggressive on the next one.

Q.  Were 12 and 13 three‑putts?  I missed those two holes.
JORDAN SPIETH:  12 was.  I mean, I had two three‑putts that were from the first cut of rough.  I'd consider them putts, though, because they were by the green.  Yeah, that one was.  13 wasn't; I just‑‑ 13 and 16 were really, really hard holes today.

Q.  Given the number of people that are still above par, you must feel okay being where you are?
JORDAN SPIETH:  Yeah, yeah, I had five birdies and I'm happy with being able to convert.  I got to 3‑under early through four holes, had another couple looks on the next couple holes, and it really could have been a low front nine.  It was nice.  It was nice getting off to that start.  But yeah, just had a lot of 5s on the card today, and playing the par‑5s 1‑over was something I haven't done in a while.  So just need to go work a little bit around the greens and a little bit on my long irons.  Other than that, my swing, my game is still there to shoot a low number, just got a little off today.
