Video: Reaction from the Scottish Open round one
Reaction of the leading players after round one of the Scottish Open on Thursday at Castle Stuart.
SOUNDBITE: (English) John Parry:
“Yes, I don’t do it many times a year, so it’s always good. I played really solid today, I don’t think… A couple of holes I had to chip and putt and when I chipped it to about six inches whenever I needed to. So, it felt pretty comfortable today.”
“Yes, got the line right off the tee, it and it got down the slope and hit the five iron at the last which is nice, gives you a chance to get it close. But generally really pleased. Didn’t play here last year, it was a couple of years ago I played here and remember making a lot of birdies and eagles, but a lot of disasters as well. So, I managed my game well early on and came through at the end there which was nice.”
“Yes, I’m pleased with this glory shot today. I played OK, don’t feel like I played great but any day you shoot sixty-six is a good day.”
“it’s a good start to the tournament. I historically have played poorly on Thursdays and put myself so far behind that I’ve been trying to just make up ground. So to play a good solid round feels good and a nice way to start the tournament. With such perfect conditions though there was an opportunity in the middle of the round where I got it going to get something really low. I’ll certainly take 66, but there was a chance because of the conditions and the way I was playing to go really low. I’ll have to work on my touch and get a little bit of fine tuning around the greens, because I let a few shots slide around there.”
