Bridgestone Invitational interview: Chris Wood

August 01, 2013

Q.  Bring it into the house 4 under in your last nine holes.

Yeah, I walked across onto the first tee, started on the 10th this morning and I think I was under par after nine holes, and I thought solid nine here might be a decent round.  Birdied the first three of my back nine, and yeah, I was on a bit of a roll from there.

Q.  Also did some nice scrambling.

Yes, especially on the front nine, as well.  Yeah, I missed a few greens early on, and those momentum putts are massive for keeping your round going.  That was a real good thing for me today.

Q.  Looks like the greens are receptive, you can be aggressive with your approaches?

Yeah, it caught me out a couple of times actually around the greens.  You're in the thick rough around the greens and I played quite a nice shot and it lands quite dead, didn't release as far as I thought, and it took a few holes to get used to that.  But the greens are probably as good as I've ever putted on.  They're a real pleasure to play on.
