QUOTABLE

Kind of weird sound to it, honestly. I don’t know. I just still feel like an underdog. I feel like until you’re No. 1, you’re chasing. So guys like Bryson and Justin, JT’s put together a ton of good years, Brooks has been crushing it. So they’re just, they keep putting that flag way out there for me to go and chase and I feel like that’s what I’ve been doing.
