“I’m still cold. It’s been a long time since I’ve woken up and hit balls in the dark too, but the greens were perfect and obviously, it worked out for me today. I’m just happy to be back in the hut right now. " - Dean Burmester.
“I am happy with today. I need to go work on my driving a little bit and holing out but apart from that very happy. It definitely is rough and with the moisture as well, it is really juicy. If you are going in there then you are struggling to get it out unless you have a really good lie, so it is a good test and it set up nicely. " Jordan Smith.
“It was good. I had a few good breaks when in the rough on a couple of occasions and fortunately made a few pars out of those situations, and hit a few fairways so I’m very pleased. Anything under par today would have been a good score. The rough was up, the wind was up, it’s a great test." - Aaron Rai.
