First Round Interview: Brian Harman & Patton Kizzire
December 7, 2018

Q. (in progress) there on the last hole. Obviously you got a great read from Brian putting in front of you.

PATTON KIZZIRE: Yeah, I got a few good reads. I like it better when he makes it in front of me so I don't have to putt, but we ham-and-egged it pretty well out there.

Q. Brian, you were a late add to the tournament this week filling in for Davis Love, and we all wish his mother well. She's home in south Georgia. Just how did you feel today playing and kind of taking to the format?

BRIAN HARMAN: Well, I had such a good time here last year, I was really hoping to get in. It's tough with Davis' mom, but I'm going to try to take advantage of the opportunity, and get to play with a good buddy, Patton. We had a nice day today.

Q. So I guess you guys talked a lot of golf, but maybe not too much football?

BRIAN HARMAN: A little bit of football, a little bit of hunting. We got all kinds of topics out there.

Q. And with the alternate shot coming up tomorrow, arguably the toughest format, how do you go about -- I mean, do you talk tonight about where you're going to play, who goes where? What's it like?

BRIAN HARMAN: I just think we just continue to drive the ball well and we'll do just fine. PATTON KIZZIRE: Yeah, we're just both going to try to hit good tee shots and pick the best one and go from there. We're not going to overthink it too much.
