First Round Interview: Bryson DeChambeau & Kevin Na
December 7, 2018

Q. Get one in play and let Bryson bomb it?

KEVIN NA: I did bomb one 350 on a par 5. We used one of my drives on a par 5. I hit one -- I don't know how, I hit one 20 by him.

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: So I was like, "Is that Sean O'Hair?" He's like, "No, no, no, it's me, I think."

KEVIN NA: You know what Steve Stricker said? "Was there a marker, a sprinkler head marker there?" I was like, "No, I hit one really hard." I've been hitting my driver pretty good.

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: What was your swing speed? What did you get it up to?

KEVIN NA: I can get it up to 117 right now.

Q. Who was making all the putts?

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: Kevin, Kevin was making all the putts.

KEVIN NA: No, no, no, front nine I made some putts and the back nine was all Bryson.

Q. What do you like about playing with the other guy? What do you like about playing with him?

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: Personally for me, I love being able to rely on somebody that's a great putter and someone who's got great ball-striking capabilities as well as me. So we're never really out of play, we always have one in play, and I think that helps us nicely when we get out there. If one of us tries to go for something, we can have someone kind of in reserve, get in the fairway, make sure that we're going to play from a good position.

Q. Are you okay with the hat?

KEVIN NA: Oh, absolutely.

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: I'm okay with his hat, too.

KEVIN NA: Yeah, it's nice to be able to hit two, three clubs less on every hole. Go to his ball, (inaudible). Go to the bombed drive out there and hit a short iron in, so it was fun.

Q. Different deal tomorrow?

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU: Different deal. Tomorrow is, I think, a tough day, and I think if we can do what we did today, we'll be fine.
