Jeff Wilson (Third Round)

July 12, 2014
Q. Good job, sir.

Q. Maintained your lead in the low amateur sweepstakes.
JEFF WILSON: I played -- I started off, I had a rough start and then the last two holes today are playing really hard. I made two bogies. But, I did some good stuff in the middle so all in all, okay.

Q. Does the big stage get to you at all?
JEFF WILSON: Well, if you would have watched me yesterday I think you would have said probably so. But, I mean there's some times where I don't feel very comfortable, like the shot on 17 that kind of plays into it a little bit, an uncomfortable shot and you're unsure and maybe you make a quick decision that if you're out at your place with your buddies you probably wouldn't. But, I don't know. I'm happy just playing along these guys. It's a thrill.

Q. Does that you've made the cut and it's just you and Mike, does it make for a little internal competition at all?
JEFF WILSON: We probably had that before the cut even started. I think he's probably got the best of me more than I've got of him. But, you know, he's a good player.

Q. With things in the balance like a spot maybe in the U.S. Amateur on the line, does that change your schedule? Are you planning on playing the U.S. Amateur anyway?
JEFF WILSON: I'm going to help my daughter move into school and so I think -- the Mid Am I think I'll try for but the U.S. Amateur, no. I've had a great time playing in those but, you know, those days are probably gone by.

Q. What's your goal for tomorrow?
JEFF WILSON: You know, I just want to go out and play -- just play well and whatever number that is, so be it, you know, and hopefully I get off to a little better start than I have the last couple days.

The USGA and Chevron have committed to using the game of golf to encourage students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. This commitment has led to the creation of extensive golf-focused STEM teaching tools, and has resulted in charitable contributions to support golf-related programs through Eagles for Education™

At U.S. Open Championships the Chevron STEM ZONE™ is an interactive experience highlighting the science and math behind the game of golf through a variety of hands-on exhibits and experiments.

The partnership has also produced educational materials such as the Science of Golf video series and a nationally-distributed newspaper insert which are provided to teachers as tools to enhance existing curriculum in schools. These lessons teach the science behind the USGA’s equipment testing, handicapping, and agronomy efforts.
