American Century Championship
Friday, July 8, 2022
Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA
Q. Walk me through your round, 18 points. Kind of up-and-down front nine, turned it around on the back.
MIKE MODANO: The front was coming in a little up-and-down, like you said. And made a few putts. Had a good eagle on 14, a good look at 13 for on eagle. And made a few putts and got it going a little bit on the back. Held it together.
Q. What point was the calming of the nerves point for you today?
MIKE MODANO: It doesn’t take too long. I think it’s after the second hole. It’s the first four swings. Getting in your groove and you get in that zone and block everything out that’s going on. So it’s good.
Q. Tell me what it’s like to be back here at Tahoe with if atmosphere, with the fans back in full force, tell me a little bit about that.
MIKE MODANO: It’s great. A lot going on in this world. And people fought through it, and the last two, three years a lot going on. We appreciate them coming out. It’s a lot. It says a lot about just the fight in our country and so we battled through a lot. Good to see them all.
Q. You’ve got the whole family here. You get to work anything on the game or have family time this afternoon?
MIKE MODANO: Might be do fishing and hanging out. It will be good for me to get away from the game.
