MODERATOR: John Huston shot a 68 today and is 6 under
par for the Championship.
Good start and then played solidly, like a lot of pars through the long
stretch, and then in the last four holes made a little headway.
JOHN HUSTON: Overall, it was pretty good. I wasn't hitting my putts hard enough on the
front nine because I left a few chances out there, but I made a good save at 17
and then a nice putt at 18. So I'm
Now, given the conditions and given the fact that Bernhard has five
strokes and the fact that he ‑‑ a lot of guys have said he's not going to come
back to you, is it realistic that someone's going to catch him?
JOHN HUSTON: Well, I mean, yeah. I mean, there's definitely a low score out
there if we have the same weather conditions.
You know, you just have to hit it in the fairway. If you hit it in the fairway, there's a lot
of good chances to make birdie because a lot of the times, the ball will feed
to the hole if you hit it in the right section of the green.
So there's definitely a low score
out there. But like you said, he's
probably not going to back up.
Do you feel that maybe tomorrow is the day for you?
JOHN HUSTON: Could be.
I've played a little. Actually
felt a little bit better each day. I
didn't putt as well today as I did yesterday, but I made a nice putt at the
end, actually, the last couple holes. So
hopefully, that will carry over.
What's the hardest part of this golf course to figure out?
JOHN HUSTON: I think it's hard to get the lines off the
tee with the different winds. The wind
has been similar each day, but it's changed a little bit, and I think it's kind
of hard to get the right line. There's a
lot of blind tee shots and some funny angles.
Having not played here before, this
being probably the fourth or fifth time now, I'm starting to get better at what
the lines off the tee are.
Have you convinced yourself that the putts going downhill are faster,
the putts uphill are slower?
JOHN HUSTON: It's hard to get the speed. The greens are in great shape. If you give yourself good chances, you should
be able to make them.
JOHN HUSTON: Thanks a lot.
