Koepka 'felt like crap' after hitting marshal

Koepka 'felt like crap' after hitting marshal”

With half the field finished, the 70 had Johnson three shots off the lead of Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark and in the top 10. "If I would have shot 1 over and didn't strike it well and everything was average, it would have been fine".

"I can't putt any worse than I did today", he said.

Herman is fully exempt on Tour through 2018 thanks to his first career win at last year's Shell Houston Open and has six top-25 finishes this season, including a T-3 at the Valspar Championship in March. It was four shots worse than U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who nearly missed his share of putts and shot a 68.

Thomas, who led Alabama to the 2013 championship, carded a 2-over 73 after hitting only seven of 14 fairways in what he called a "real struggle" of a round.

"I've still got the big cheque on my wall at home", Deane told AAP on Wednesday.

Lahiri speak: It is nice to come back to a venue where I have some playing experience (Wells Fargo Championship 2016).

"If I can get the job done this week, and then run into the playoffs with the same kind of momentum, then I would consider it as good or a better year than even then, which is pretty cool". I burned a lot of edges today. "I mean, that's never fun to walk up and see somebody, you just drilled them". I've got control over it finally. Spieth, last month's Open Championship victor, will play with Masters champ Sergio Garcia and US Open champ Brooks Koepka in the first two rounds at Quail Hollow.

Brooks Koepka, himself a major victor and also one of Spieth's playing partners Thursday, agreed that Spieth's putter was the culprit for his mediocre round.

"The greens are very hard". Instead, he quickly regained his focus and birdied three of the next five holes to get back under par. "It's challenging tee to green but on the greens it's very hard and very fast". There are a lot of little knobs where if you hit it high it's going to stay high and hit it low it's going to break away from the hole.

He then made bogey on the par four 16th, the first of the fearsome three holes named "the Green Mile" on the North Carolina course.

That was followed by a session at the range, where I checked out a few things I had worked on with my coach Vijay Divecha. I feel confident about my game right now. "I'm very pleased with that the way the course played".

The 28-year-old also failed to birdie the par-five 15th and said: "I wish I could have those three holes back, but apart from that I played nicely and I'm still in it".

And his approach leading to a birdie on the eighth.
