An Interview with: DAVID TOMS

Q.  David, 4-under par round.  Other than the 11th hole seemed like a great ball striking day.  Made some putts, good chip shots.

DAVID TOMS:  One of the solid days.  Obviously if you’re in the fairway, it’s not a difficult golf course.  The greens are receptive.  But, you know, I hung in there when I didn’t hit good shots, I got up and down and a couple of good shots.  You know, about the way I played, 4-under par.

So, certainly have to strike a little better tomorrow to shoot a low round but I think one is in there, I just got to go out and do it.

Q.  Take me through 15, 16, 17 because you missed the green left with a great pitch shot, knock-in birdie, missed the green left and make a par at 16 and then the birdie at 17.

DAVID TOMS:  15 I was far enough back where I couldn’t see where I was going on the second shot.  I knew I didn’t need to miss it right.  Lake over there, tough up and down.  Anything left and pin high was going to be a fairly easy up and down.  I got it over there and hit a great chip shot, kick-in birdie.

I tried to attack the pin on 16 which if you don’t hit a good shot there you’re going to pay the price.  Luckily I got up and down from the fringe there.

17, just played a routine kind of shot, wedge shot in there close, and then the way I played 18.  I did a great job.  Hit a 7-iron about 25 feet and tapped it in.

Q.  You’re the only one in the FedExCup point standings here with a chance with a win this weekend you move to No. 1.  Do you think about that much, do you know where you are, do you know what’s at stake?

DAVID TOMS:  I don’t think about it too much.  Certainly would love to win this event because I like it and I came close last year.  There’s so many points at stake in the next month.

Once The Playoffs start just because you’re No. 1 going in doesn’t mean a whole lot.  Although it’s a pretty good position to be in there.  I’d like to just play great at this event just for the sake of playing well here.
