“I think the practice putting greens are a little faster than the greens out on the course, but they’re in some of the best shape of any tournament. So, it’s going to be great to play them. You can see just walking by the putting green that they are in unbelievable shape. I think everyone is excited because the golf course is in that good of condition.”

“They’re expecting a little bit of wind tomorrow, so I don’t think they’ll have the greens rolling too fast. I can’t see anyone complaining about the conditions of the greens.”

“I’m going to stick my neck out there, I don’t think they’re going to get a lot better venue than the one we have this year. I mean everything about it is brilliant. I’ve played in three (Presidents Cups) so far and this is my favorite one.”

“The greens are phenomenal. Every pin is accessible. The greens are softer, so most pins are definitely getable, even with a long iron. It’s perfect for match play. It allows us to be aggressive and those aggressive shots will be rewarded this week.”

Jhonattan Vegas takes some practice swings on Liberty National’s driving range.

“Course conditions are as good as we’ve played all year.”

“My favorite thing about the course is where it’s located. You’re almost in the middle of New York City, and it just doesn’t get any better.”
