It obviously wasn’t great.
Those were Matthew Wolff’s first words during his post-round interview Friday at the U.S. Open.
Just a “hair off” in his game quickly added up to an over-par round Saturday among the firm fairways, thick rough and slippery greens of Torrey Pines.
However, Wolff’s first four words wouldn’t make you think that he’s only three shots back from leaders Russell Henley, Mackenzie Hughes, and Louis Oosthuizen, who are tied at 5 under.
Wolff felt the tug of frustration during his round. Sometimes it got to him, but a hard-fought 73 on the most difficult test in golf showed his grit.
