Chris Stroud discusses third round at Colonial

(Continued)

FORT WORTH — Q. Do you think the conditions on the greens will hold up through tomorrow?

STROUD:  I don't see the greens changing much.  I don't think they are going to get much firmer.  I wish they would.  Because it would be more difficult to hold the greens for guys that miss the fairway.  But it's playing much easier than normal.  Still you got to go out there and hit a lot of good golf shots.

Q. What's the bill for tomorrow, and motivation?

CHRIS STROUD:  For me, I'm going to keep doing the same thing.  Not a lot of drivers on this golf course for me.  I'm sure that's the case for a lot of guys.  I only hit three or four drivers, just keep it in the fairway, keep it in play, give myself a wedge.  Give myself a short iron to the pins.  I'm sure the pins will be a little bit more difficult placement tomorrow.  Today there was some easy pins out there.  The wind switched a little bit.  It was more south today which I thought made some holes way more difficult and made a lot more holes easier.  So it was out there today.

Q. You got to feel like it's there for the taking?

STROUD:  It's there, it's there.  But I mean you got to treat it like any other round.  You got to go out there and give yourself a lot of looks and see if you can make some putts.
