Round 2 Interview With:

Justin Thomas

Friday May 4, 2018

Q. Better day for you today?

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, yeah. I played pretty similarly, honestly. I played really well yesterday. Just, man, I putted so terribly yesterday, enough in fact that I changed putters. I actually used one of Rickie's putters today, so it was that desperate in terms of how I was feeling over the putter.

But yeah, again, I played really well today. Hit a lot of good drives, a lot of good iron shots. Left a couple out there those last four, five holes, which was disappointing, but got it at least back to par going into the weekend.

Q. When was the last time you switched putters mid tournament?

JUSTIN THOMAS: Completely different model, I couldn't tell you, but I've gone to my backup before. But my backup even felt so bad in my hands, I just had to do something else.

Q. Any specs on the new putter?

JUSTIN THOMAS: No idea. Newport 2, that's all I've got for you.

Q. Are you thinking about No. 1 anymore?

JUSTIN THOMAS: I mean, a little bit, but I'm over thinking about it because someone told me, and it was a great way to put it, I'm not trying to have it for a week, I'm trying to have it for a long time. I can't put too much pressure on having it because it's not like it's just going to be once and it will be done. I just need to continue to try to play good golf and give myself chances to win tournaments. You would hope if I keep playing the way that I've been playing that I'll have it at some point.

Q. (No microphone.)

JUSTIN THOMAS: The Scotty, the same thing I've been using for a while. I don't even know what it's called, I think an X5 maybe, something like that.
