"I got to play the first five holes in perfect conditions and really took advantage of it," he said. "I then came back out and was able to keep the momentum going. To make no bogeys in the conditions we played is really more than I could have ever hoped for. I played the last 13 holes wishing I had hand-warmers. The wind was certainly a two or three club wind."
"You play well in a day that doesn't feel as long," Malnati said. "But I'll tell you what, I'm going to call it maybe our 28th or 29th hole, as we were making the turn, my legs were tired. I know Billy and I both, most of the guys out here, are into our conditioning and it's important, but you're not prepared to be on your feet walking for what we were today, 10 hours or more, with warmup more than that. It's a long day."
