Golf Channel Notable Quotes
THE PLAYERS Championship, Round 2
Friday, May 13, 2016 (1-8 p.m. ET on Golf Channel)
TPC Sawgrass (Stadium Course), Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

**Due to inclement weather this afternoon, several players were unable to complete their second round prior to play being suspended due to darkness. Second round play will resume at 9:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, airing live on Golf Channel. Live coverage of the third round will begin at 2 p.m. ET, and will air on NBC.**

On Jason Day (14-under, leader)
Nick Faldo – “The quality of his golf is different. He’s in his own right now… I’ve been calling him a machine. Or is this the common-day Ben Hogan? For a guy to hit it so long, so consistent… where’s his weakness? There isn’t a weakness.”

Rory McIlroy (8-under, T-12th) speaking with Golf Channel’s Steve Sands following his second-round 64
Rory McIlroy – “This golf course plays so differently from morning to afternoon… With your morning tee time here especially in these first two days you need to take advantage of it… It just plays trickier [in the afternoon]. I’m happy with my game. I don’t feel like I played that much differently today than I did yesterday, but it’s an eight shot difference.”

On Cameron Tringale (10-under, T-3rd)
Billy Ray Brown – “He goes about his game in a very professional manner. He’s got really no weakness throughout his game.”

Will Wilcox speaking with Sands following his round about his hole-in-one on the par-3 17th hole
Will Wilcox – “I was just trying to luck-it-up there on the green… I’m kind of hovering around the cut line at that point, so for it to happen right there is pretty surreal.”
