"I think this is one of the windiest conditions I've played in," Ko said. "Especially because it is so wide open from like 10 to 13, there's no trees covering it, and normally when I played the British Opens, or even here a couple years ago, there was rain and that kind of softens up everything. It just makes it a touch easier than what it could be playing. But I think today was probably one of the most difficult rounds I've played in my career, and I think just physically, mentally."
"I feel like I'm hitting it OK and I'm putting it fine, but those things kind of need to come together," Ko said. "At the end of the day, I know I need to be patient, and sometimes it's just not going to go your way even though you try your best. At the end, all I've got to do is just try my best, and after that it's really out of my hands."
