American Century Championship
Friday, July 8, 2022
Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA
Q. 18 points in the first round. And it looked a little psychotic on your scorecard. I think you had five bogeys, two doubles and five birdies; is that right?
ADAM THIELEN: Sounds about right. Sounds like my golf game. A little psychotic is a great way to describe my golf game. It’s the consistency. I feel like I can hang with anybody, but consistency was rough today.
Q. Starting off with, what, a double on the first?
ADAM THIELEN: Doubled 1 and 10.
Q. But came back pretty good with five birdies. You’re in the hunt on this thing. What’s it like for you? You have football camp in a couple weeks and out in Tahoe having fun with the boys, what’s it like?
ADAM THIELEN: Just enjoying it. I get to do my training in the morning, and I get to go out there, play golf, enjoy the lake. We went surfing today. Today probably hang by the pool. It’s a great breakup right before camp to be able to just spend time with my wife and to relax, play a lot of golf, which in about two weeks I won’t touch the clubs for six months. So it’s good.
Q. When you look at your chances out here, what do you realistically think?
ADAM THIELEN: I feel good about them. Obviously today probably wasn’t the best start. But it was a score that can keep me in contention, I guess. But I think if I just go out there, play like I did today and limit a couple of errors, I’ll be fine.
