Flash interview with:
Riegger with a 3 under today for a 67, 3 under for the Championship.
Q. 3 under come from
better ball striking or putting?
JOHN RIEGGER: No, I hit it unbelievable today. The only
green I missed today was 17. It tempted me that I could probably drive it on
the green there, and I laid it up, and I still chunked it in the bunker. So
something about that hole.
Q. It's got your
number this week?
JOHN RIEGGER: I think I need to let my caddie hit that shot.
I think my legs are just tired walking up the hill or something. I don't know
what the heck's going on.
Q. When you say you
hit it great, how many did you think you didn't cash in on?
JOHN RIEGGER: I three putted the 2nd hole for par from 20
feet. I had it 20 feet on 6 for eagle, two putted there. Hit it in there close
on 8 again today. Close on 9. Trying to think. Hit it close on 15.
I had a couple funny looking putts out there and didn't get
them to the hole. But I mean, I made the ones I was supposed to have made
today. If I can just get a hot putter, I feel like I can shoot 6, 7, 8 under
par around this place.
Q. Michael's backing
up just a slight bit. Is he catchable with the way the course is playing and
what's out there?
JOHN RIEGGER: I didn't even look at the board today, so I
don't even know. What's he doing?
Q. Right now, he's 2
over. 2 over today, so he's 8.
JOHN RIEGGER: I don't know. There are some birdie holes
coming in. I don't know what hole he's on. Like I said, I didn't look at the
Q. He's playing 13.
JOHN RIEGGER: 13, 14, 15 are birdie able holes. 17 is a
birdie able hole. Even 18, even though the tee's back again today, I didn't hit
a good drive there and still had a 7 iron in. So I mean, if you hit good shots,
the birdies are out there.
The greens are holding up pretty nicely. There are a few
spots that are a little bumpy, but for the most part, you know, if he can get
it to the hole, he can make some putts. I'm struggling getting putts to the
Q. Thank you. Great
JOHN RIEGGER: Thank you. Hope to see you tomorrow.
Q. We do too.
