Adams talks U.S. Open

Adams qualified for the major with a third-place finish at a sectional qualifier in Georgia earlier this month.

On experience at the U.S. Open

Adams: “It was a lot of fun. It was a great week. I wish that I would have played a little bit better.”

On when he had the “wow” moment at the Open

Adams: “Going down the second hole, I realized we jumped into the deep end. You better buckle up.”

“I was surprising comfortable when I got there.”

On dealing with the weather

Adams: “I had played nine holes, four days in a row leading up to it and we were getting kind of use to the firm conditions and sure enough, it rains three inches. It threw a wrench in the plans and everybody had to adjust.”

Where the U.S. Open appearance ranked in his career

Adams: “It’s definitely up there. I have to say it’s a highlight. Even to be a missed cut. I’d tried pretty much every year since I turned pro and even before that. To finally get into one is something special. That 36-hole day at sectional is a tough one. It was nice to crack through the barrier and get in one.”
