John Merrick


Q.  What was the difference today?  Was it a little tougher pin placements?
JOHN MERRICK:  Yeah, a little breeze out there, which is pretty common out there.
I played okay.  Just had a couple of hiccups, didn't make any birdies.  Made an eagle on 16.  But it was just kind of a‑‑ just a tough day out there, really.  Just couldn't get anything going.
Just kind of had a‑‑ gosh, just messed up on 10.  Didn't take my time.  We had a short putt for par and missed it, wasn't really thinking.  And missed a short putt for bogey, made double there.  I hit it into the lip of the trap on 15 off the tee and had to wedge out.
That's golf.  You get bad breaks.  Just one of those days I couldn't get anything going.

Q.  That eagle had to be a big‑‑
JOHN MERRICK:  Yeah, it was great.  I didn't really feel like I played that bad.  I made that double and just missed a couple 6‑, 8‑footers for par, which could have GONE in.  All of a sudden 4 over par for the day.  It was nice to roll in that putt for eagle.  I made a good par save on 17.  On 18, it's just such a tough putt.  You can't believe how much that putt breaks to the right.
Overall it was just kind of an opposite day than the first day.  I got it going the first day and then today I just couldn't get anything going.

Q.  After a couple of hiccups you still going to be happy with where you are at on the leaderboard?
JOHN MERRICK:  Yeah, it's a tough golf course.  Yesterday I just didn't‑‑ I think I got all my birdies out of the way and only made one bogey yesterday.  You're going to make bogeys out here.  Just kind of made a few in a four or five hole stretch today.  It happens.  And hopefully make some birdies tomorrow.
