Q: Kyle, beautiful day, beautiful scorecard. Your thoughts on today, man?
KYLE STANLEY: Thank you. Yeah, really happy with that. Scoring‑wise, you probably couldn’t have asked for better conditions. The Plantation course played pretty soft green‑wise and not a whole lot of wind, so pretty ideal day for some low scores.
Q: Now, our crew’s been kind of debating, would you rather have the Seaside or the Plantation course on a day like today?
KYLE STANLEY: Oh, boy, I’m not sure it really matters. You’re going to have to play them both at some point. I’m not sure what the wind was like over there. Overall, I don’t really have a preference.
Q: And the game’s been trending in the right direction. Any secrets?
KYLE STANLEY: Yeah, no, it has. Not really. I just feel like maybe, you know, sometimes your work doesn’t pay off as soon as you would like it to. Obviously I had a stretch there where I wasn’t playing very well but kept working. I seem to be kind of on my way out of that, so overall really happy with how I’m doing.
Q: 7 under to start the tournament at the Plantation course. Just a continuation of this good run you’re on.
KYLE STANLEY: Yeah. In fact, I’ve definitely been playing a little bit better. Scoring‑wise, pretty ideal conditions, not much wind, soft greens, but overall pretty happy with the day.
Q: What was the moment for you, because obviously when you came out, you won and everyone got excited about Kyle Stanley and then you had a lull. You’re resurging again. What was the turning point to you getting it back on the right path?
KYLE STANLEY: You know, over your career it’s kind of a given you’re going to have some low points, or some highs and lows. Either way, you’ve just got to I think commit to working. I’ve done that and I kind of feel like I’m on my way out of it, which is nice. When the confidence goes, it just takes some time to get it back. Starting to feel a lot better, maybe feeling a little bit like my old self again on the golf course, which is really positive.
