Gainey, Wagner have great first rounds

Interviews with early leaders at The Greenbrier Classic

(Continued)

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS —

Q. Were you (inaudible)?

TOMMY GAINEY: Absolutely. I mean, it helps when you have soft greens and hit the fairways. I mean, it's easier out of the rough, but it's still not that easy. When you hit it in the fairways, it's easier for sure.

Q. (Inaudible)

TOMMY GAINEY: It's early. There's still three days left, but I'll tell you what, I like my chances starting off. I didn't hurt myself with an 8-under round today. I mean, I feel good about my game and half this game is confidence.

Q. Do you feel you can maybe go even lower?

TOMMY GAINEY: I think it's possible you can take it lower. I missed a few putts out there inside of 10 feet, probably two or three, I think. I think somebody can take it deeper. As a matter of fact, Johnson Wagner was out there, he was 8-under and I think he had four or five holes to play. It wouldn't surprise me if he got it to 10.

Q. How many times did you look at the leaderboard out there?

TOMMY GAINEY: I always look at the leaderboard. It's no big deal though. It's nice to see your name first, but it's just the first day. Three more days to play. The only thing you can do on the first day is shoot your way out of it, and I definitely didn't do that today.

Q. You looked like you were having fun with the gallery? They were talking to you, having fun.

TOMMY GAINEY: I always socialize with the gallery. They holler at me and I try to speak to them. That's just the way I am.

Q. (Inaudible)?

TOMMY GAINEY: Actually the putter got hot from the 1st hole because I think I made like a 40-footer on the 1st hole, maybe a little further, maybe a little less. So I birdied the first two, and any time you can birdie the first two you've got a chance to really take it low.
