"I was sticking to the same gameplan, I was doing the same things", said Hadwin, of Abbotsford, B.C. "The same plan, and get on the fairway, and be aggressive as you can, and take your par". "It was downwind to where I knew if I hit it solid, I could definitely get it there".
"I did everything I could to make more birdies coming in", he said.

"I saw some positives there on the back nine coming in and hopefully I can take them to the Travelers (tournament) next week", he said.

"Oh gosh, Jimmy, be good", he said to caddie Jimmy Johnson when the ball was in the air, and it was close to ideal. "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did". It's just been trying to figure it out on and around the greens.
"It was never that way in the U.S. Open".
Champ said a practice round with former British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen and four-times major victor McIlroy on Monday helped his confidence.

But Erin Hills, this 11-year-old layout with which the game is still coming to terms, was a more demanding test than on Thursday. He had missed another eagle putt on the 15th, when he drove the green in one and then rolled a six-footer just wide of the hole.
