An Interview with: GREG CHALMERS

GREG CHALMERS: You really have to driver it in play.  I did that, only missed two fairways today by my count.  When you do that you get in trouble as I made my first bogey.  There are some opportunities if you drive it in play.  I think you’ll see some low scores from the guys back there get going.

Q.  Did you kind of lay it up a little bit on 18 hoping to —

GREG CHALMERS:  I was trying to lay it up short of the bunkers.  I got a flyer.  I wasn’t anticipating hitting an 8-iron as far as I did.

I was just trying to get it over the creek.  Left me an impossible position.  Five was a good score for me.  I’m pleased with the day.  I really played nicely.

Q.  Weather is kind of cooperating a little bit.

GREG CHALMERS:  Yeah.  I think it helps the way they set the golf course up.  I think the people can get the greens a little firmer.  They’re not exactly mush like they normally are here.  There’s been some whispers about bermuda for next year.  That would make the golf course extremely difficult, I think.  You can make it firmer.  Certainly it’s much more pleasant to be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than what we normally are.

Q.  You’re 4-under.  Not a bad start.  What do you have to do with your game to pick up a few more strokes?

GREG CHALMERS:  Usually it comes down to driving and playing, putting.  I probably missed a couple putts today that could have gone in, that makes a difference between a 7-under round and 4-under round.  I’m pleased.  If I shot four 4-unders I wouldn’t be far away from something exciting.  It’s a good start for me.  I’m looking forward to the rest of the week.
