NOTABLE QUOTES – THE PLAYERS, ROUND 1 (GOLF CHANNEL)
Golf Channel Notable Quotes
THE PLAYERS Championship, Round 1
Thursday, May 12, 2016 (1-7 p.m. ET on Golf Channel)
TPC Sawgrass (Stadium Course), Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
Jason Day (9-under, leader) speaking with Golf Channel’s Steve Sands following his round
Jason Day – “The scores are so low. When you shoot a 9-under par round, especially on this course you expect to have a decent lead. Fortunately and unfortunately I’ve got only a two-shot lead.”
On Thursday’s favorable scoring conditions
Johnny Miller – “You’re not going to grow any more rough to speak of between now and Sunday…The rough is the main difference. When you give these guys the ‘no-rough clause’ it’s green light a lot of the time.”
Faldo – “Traditionally it gets feisty at the weekend. It firms up, the breeze, the temperature, the nerves come in. So you’ve just got to stay in touch with the leaders.”
Dan Hicks – “It was a leaderboard like we’ve never seen late in the final round last year, and this is a leaderboard like we’ve never seen in the first round this year.”
