Charley Hoffman Saturday (Third Round)
Q. I think that you won everyone over when you threw the ball in the stands?
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: Yeah, I just wanted to get rid of that ball. It was going everywhere and it finally ended up in the hole. Hopefully someone got a nice souvenir there.
Q. How were the conditions out there today compared to the last couple of days?
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: Well, I think it was good. It was starting to firm up a little bit. All in all you were able to get at it today. There were some funky pins. You expect that with a USGA event. I can make birdies, but you can make bogeys fast.
Q. Are you hoping Mike Davis is in a good mood?
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: I think I need him to be in a bad mood. A couple of guys are playing under par, I'm quite a ways back, so I need some funky pins and a little bit of luck.
Q. Overall your experience here at Merion, this course is extremely tough. How about the crowd?
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: You know what, the golf course is second to none, really. Logistics and walking around are a little tough. But the crowd, the golf course, it's fun to be out here.
Q. Do you think even par could win this thing?
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: Oh, 100 percent. I bogeyed the last three holes without winking an eye, so it can happen real fast.
