Q: Ollie, 4 under today, you got off to a hot start. Comments on the day.
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: Yeah, it was a great start. Kind of had a scrappy finish yesterday so it was awesome to come out and get off to a great start. Hit some really good shots and made some putts. 3 under through those first three holes is stealing at least three shots I think. So got off to a great start, game felt good. I feel like I’m playing awesome and I’m sniffing a low round every day out there. So three good rounds and one more good one tomorrow and see where that puts me.
Q: A little tougher today, right?
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: Yeah, this is what I typically remember this place being like, probably 15‑, 20‑mile an hour winds out of the west and it changes the course completely. For some guys, it’s a real challenge playing this course without wind.
Q: You won on the Web last year. Not off to a great start missing three cuts, but how much could this week turn it around for you?
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: Yeah, out here the thing is if you’re good, one week can just turn around everything. You’re better off missing three cuts and then getting a top‑10 than you are getting four 30th places. Out here it’s about capitalizing on your opportunities when you have them, so that’s what I plan on doing tomorrow and this week. Yeah, one week can change your whole year.
Q: Just your comfort level here in Georgia?
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: Yeah, I’m comfortable down here. I’ve been down here, played here in high school a lot and I played some big tournaments here in high school and have my family and friends here. It’s just an area I’m familiar with and it’s a drive away. I’ve got my car. It’s cool to be on the PGA Tour in my home state.
Q: Any success from those tournaments in high school?
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: Yeah, I actually won a junior tournament at Seaside.
Q: Going low?
OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS: I won by 10 when I was 16, but I hadn’t played it since then. I haven’t played it in seven years.
