Spectators watch as golfers Jason Day (2L) of Australia, Rickie Fowler (C) of the United States and Matteo Manassero (R) of Italy play on the 17th green during the first round the US Open at Merion Golf Club June 13, 2013 in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Everybody said the golf course suited me really well ... I don't personally think it suited me really well for the condition that it's in or for the conditions it's playing in. Some holes are really, really long and some guys can still have like 7‑irons out of the rough and put it beside the green. I've got to hit a rescue so I've got to wedge it out and then wedge it onto the green.
I went from being 16 and playing with and sometimes beating the likes of Tom and Matteo Manassero to really struggling ... When I was 18, 19 they were winning on Tour and I was having trouble breaking 80 in the Eisenhower Trophy.
I like that nine -- they are holes where you can gain or lose many shots, and if you can gain it's a big gapMore quotes »
