Defending Their Title
Dave McMahon -- You won the conference player of the year award and the team won 6 events this year, but it's the NCAA Championship what matters... explain.
Chris Kirk -- This is going to be a fun week competing. We have a great opportunity to defend our title. To win the SEC and NCAA's in one year would be special.
DM -- Even though you are #1, it's anybody's game... right?
CK -- Right. It's just one week of competition. Anyone can win. My freshman year Cal was ranked 20th and won. I guess us and Oklahoma State would be the favorites, but that doesn't really mean anything. It is all about who is peaking at the right time.
DM -- What is the main difference in you this year compared to when you were a freshman?
CK -- I am really a lot more comfortable now. The experience factor is huge. I know the golf courses a whole lot better. I feel I can compete with all the best college players.
DM -- What are the team's strengths?
CK -- We are very consistant. You don't see any of us shooting in the 80's. We don't make too many mistakes.
DM -- Everyone on the team is from the east coast area... this tournament is in Oregon, does it make a difference?
CK -- No, we played there earlier this year. We shot really well on the course and won the event..
DM -- What did you shoot?
CK -- In the three rounds, I shot 71-70-70.
DM -- You grew up in Woodstock, Georgia. The state of Georgia has so many great golf schools... why Georgia?
CK -- I really liked the environment. The school was great. The town was great. It was the best and I liked everything about it.
DM -- Thank you and good luck.
