David Frost (Third Round)

July 12, 2014
Q. So, three days in a row, 71. Pretty consistent.
DAVID FROST: I'd say. You wouldn't say that by my front-9. I was all over the place on the front-9 every day and somehow find my way back, fight my way back on the back-9. Just working on a few things on my swing and when I start out I'm a little bit hesitant about it and as the round goes on I try to trust it more and more and more. And, so, you know, played some solid golf on the back-9 all three days. So, you know, I wouldn't say I'm in position to win but right now who knows, maybe I can just keep playing a few solid holes tomorrow at the start and who knows what I can come back in.

Q. Sure. You shot 34. Obviously played well on the back-9 today, three birdies. Can you talk about your birdies a little bit today?
DAVID FROST: I made a nice birdie on 11. I made a nice downhiller. And then another one on 12, made a good 20-footer there and another one on the par 5 14th and, unfortunately, I flew the green on 16 -- on 15, par 4, and I made a bogey there but, you know, hit solid shots. Almost birdied 18, 17 and 18. So, very happy with the finish.

Q. What do you have to do tomorrow to put a full 18 together, try and go low?
DAVID FROST: Yeah. You know, it's such a funny game, who knows? You just play a steady round of golf and try to shoot 2-under the front-9 tomorrow and who knows what can happen on the back. So, I'm not going for fireworks. Play a nice conservative front-9 tomorrow. If you can get to 2-under it will be my goal tomorrow

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.
