5-29 Third-Round Remarks from Sergio Garcia (-10)

Q. Get your thoughts on the round today?

SERGIO GARCIA: Yeah, I mean, it was a good round. Obviously the scores weren't super low. The course is firming up. Just a tiny bit of breeze makes it just a little bit more challenging. Obviously Jason and Jordan, they both played well, so that didn't help much.

But you know, I felt like the way I drove the ball, I should have done a little bit better than I did. Felt like I had the chances to do it. Unfortunately just a couple errant iron shots cost me a little bit. Other than that, I felt like, you know, I played hard and kept giving myself as many chances as possible, and hopefully we'll be able to do a little bit better tomorrow.

Q. You know what it takes to win here, so what's going to be your mindset tomorrow?

SERGIO GARCIA: I'm just going to try to go out there and play the best I can. It's as simple as that. If I can drive the ball as well as I did today or the first day, I hit my irons like I hit them on the first day, then maybe I have a chance. It's going to depend a little bit on what Jason and Jordan do, too. If they go out there and shoot 4- or 5-under, it's going to be difficult to shoot 9 or 10. Obviously you can do it but it's not that easy. I'll give it my best shot and see where we're in there.

Q. Do you remember where you were 20 years ago in the final round -- you shot 63 in the final round.

SERGIO GARCIA: I remember I shot 63 and I remember I shot 6-under on the front nine and I was -- I don't know how many shots I was back, probably three or four. So we'll see. You know, we're a little bit farther back.

Q. You know you're capable of shooting a low final round like did you back then. Do you think it might take a 63, maybe better?

SERGIO GARCIA: It's going to be to depend. Obviously like I said if Jordan or Jason shoot 4- or 5-under, it's going to take lower than that. So we'll see. We'll give it our best shot and see what happens.
