Michael Kim Saturday (Second Round)
Q. Comment on your round.
MICHAEL KIM: Yesterday I was 2‑under going to the suspension. I had a par chip on 4. I actually made an 8‑footer for par on 4. I putted really well today and yesterday, and I'm in good position.
Q. Are you surprised with where you are after two rounds?
MICHAEL KIM: Yeah. I didn't really expect to be ‑‑ I think I was in 13th last time I checked. It's pretty cool.
Q. Did you check the leaderboards at all? Obviously the numbers in Round 2 are going up and up. You had one of the best four or five rounds today?
MICHAEL KIM: Yeah, I didn't really check. I checked last night. And these leaderboards, they mostly show the leaders like Donald and Horschel. So I didn't really see it. I mean, I just tried to focus on my game and that's about it.
Q. How is the course playing?
MICHAEL KIM: It's tough. You miss the fairway, you're lucky to hit it on the green. The pin locations are getting pretty tricky and the greens are speeding up.
Q. Is being low amateur a goal of yours?
MICHAEL KIM: Yeah, obviously Pan is doing well right now. We have a few more rounds to go. So I could get last. You just don't know.
Q. What are your thoughts heading into this afternoon?
MICHAEL KIM: Just the same thing. One shot at a time and trying to hit as many fairways as possible.
Q. What has been the key to your success the first two rounds?
MICHAEL KIM: Just been really steady. Hitting a decent amount of fairways and greens. I've been putting pretty well. These greens are really tricky. And I think putting is one of my strengths and it's been working so far.
