Gainey, Wagner have great first rounds

Interviews with early leaders at The Greenbrier Classic



Q. What do you remember from those days, from working there to where you are now?

TOMMY GAINEY: From working there, it's a class company. I mean, they stick by what they say. They make the best water heaters in the business and they stick by that. If you're not happy with that, they'll make sure you will be happy with it. They'll make you happy with it. You know, I'm just proud to have them -- proud to be a part of the family.

MODERATOR: Tommy, congratulations. Happy Fourth of July and hope to see you back in here the rest of the week. TOMMY GAINEY: Oh, yeah, God bless and Happy Fourth of July to everyone.

MODERATOR: We'd like to welcome Johnson Wagner to the interview room after a very successful 8-under 62 round 1 in the Greenbrier Classic. Great playing, happy Fourth of July, all that other good stuff. That being said, just some comments on the round and then we'll open it up and take some questions.

JOHNSON WAGNER: Well, happy birthday, America, by the way. It's nice to shoot a good round on Independence Day. Had a nice start to the day, birdied 3, 4, 5, hit a great shot out of the trees on 7 to about three feet, birdied 9 for 29 and maybe my first competitive 29 on the PGA TOUR, which was cool. Then the 59 thought started creeping in, blocked it out for a few holes and birdied 11, chipped in for eagle on 12, and then the 59 thoughts really got in my mind. But I managed to hit really quality shots and quality putts coming in. I've been disappointed with 72s and 79s last month, so I'm very happy to be disappointed with a 62 today.

MODERATOR: With that being said, we'll open it up and take some questions.

Q. The mustache. With a good four days here, does it come back, does it stay
