Q. Excellent round if we can get some comments.
COLLIN MORIKAWA: Yeah, I found a few more fairways and that's key out here. The rough is long, it's wet and you just want to give yourself good birdie opportunities. I feel like my irons have been going really well and I just have to stick to that. Hit some fairways, whether it's from 175 or a hundred yards, that's where my sweet spot is. Found that today.
Q. I know Jason is 10-under but you're at T-7 right now so talk about your thoughts going into the weekend?
COLLIN MORIKAWA: Yeah, obviously I've got some work to do. A lot of low one under scores still out here. Who know what is the afternoon wave is going to post with some rain but overall the game feels good. Still put myself in a couple bad spots and didn't make up-and-down but other than that, you know, just got to keep sticking to what I've been doing and stick to the game plan.
Q. Speaking of feeling good, how does it feel to be done before the weather comes in this afternoon?
COLLIN MORIKAWA: It's great. I've got a big smile. I was hoping that we'd get in even nine holes but obviously the storm kind of held itself and to have just a little sprinkle on pretty much our last putt was very fortuitous for our round.
Q. How different were the conditions out there today? Yesterday was breezy and wet. Did you feel a difference?
COLLIN MORIKAWA: Yeah, you just really had to gauge what the weather was going to be like. This morning the balls were not really flying as far, and the fairways -- I was in more fairways today so I had to notice whether I was into the grain or downgrain, because it really does make a difference with how much spin you're going to get. You have to take advantage of not a lot of wind and we got lucky without the rain.
