"I drove it pretty well and I've got a lot of confidence in my driver. I've been hitting it really good over the past three or four weeks."

Paisley sank seven birdies, with his only dropped shot coming after he missed a seven-foot putt for par at the 16th, while Schauffele birdied two of his last four holes.
