First Round Interview with Brandt Snedeker

Q. Looked like it was a tough day to play golf. Was that accurate?

BRANDT SNEDEKER: It was. The wind was up all day, but if you drove the ball well, which I did a pretty good job of until the last hole, you had some opportunities. You had some downwind holes early that you could get some birdies on. The greens are rolling at good speed, a good holing speed. They weren't overly fast. When it was tricky, it was tough to trust winds up there blowing as hard as it was.

Q. Got a couple 2s on the card, too, at 7 and 16?

BRANDT SNEDEKER: Yeah, those are few and far between on this golf course, the par 3s are pretty tough, so I was able to sneak a few in there pretty well. I've been playing good for quite a while now, it was good to see some putts go in today. Had some bad breaks to overcome, which I haven't been able to do lately. So it was nice to kind of grind out a good round and get where I need to be.

Q. Has it been frustrating, is golf testing your patience right now coming off your injury the last year?

BRANDT SNEDEKER: Yes, it certainly is. When things are going great, it's the best game in the world. When things are going tough, it's one of the hardest games in the world to play. It's been extremely frustrating to know I'm playing well, do all the right stuff I've been doing and not get the results I feel I need. So the hardest thing in golf is staying patient, waiting for that good round to come. Been forcing it too much, getting in my own way and not (inaudible). Did a better job at Hilton Head of doing that. I had a bad weekend. Hopefully I can kind of finish one off this weekend, put four good rounds together.
