Unbelievable. It's such a hard tournament to believe you're going to keep going. I got lucky the first four days, and the last two games I played very well.
Something was on my side this week, keeping their putts out of the hole and making mine go in the hole. But I guess you could say that about any golf tournament you win.
Purely from a golf standpoint, I've probably played better. But I got it done. I hit shots when I needed to hit them this week.
I'm looking forward to the whole thing Magnolia Lane, the golf course, the clubhouse, the Par 3 Contest, playing the 12th, playing the 16th . . . everything.
I don't think it was everyone's favorite golf course at first but I think it's grown on people. You have to hit the ball well, you have to chip well and you have to putt well and you have to use your brain.
I had my hat in my hand. I was ready and he missed.
If he's not the best ball striker in the world, he's really close. He's probably the most reliable guy with a 5-iron in his hand. And to come up with a good shot like that pretty classy.
It was pretty level until about 11 or 12 and I was kind of hanging on to halve holes.
After I double-bogeyed my fourth hole, No. 13, I thought if I can get it anywhere under par, that's an unbelievable result.
Walking up 15, I wasn't very happy with the way it all sat. I didn't think I had any chance, but I didn't give up. I thought even if I birdied the last four holes, I'm not going to do it.
It was a good shot. It was the best shot I hit all day, no question about it. But it's lucky that it goes in. It has to be lucky it goes in. Otherwise, we'd hole shots all the time, you know.
It was just a bonus at the time. I mean, I guess it swung the momentum.
I got away with one big time. A Masters champion, you don't expect him to give you any help. But he helped me out a bit.
Every single time in those first four games, my opponent had a putt to knock me out of the tournament. And no one made one, which is pretty fortunate.
It plays long all the time. Even though the ball goes a long way here, it's still a long golf course.
I made some good putts and for the most part I played really well. I got lucky a couple times. But how do you forget the week you had your first double eagle It was good.
I played the best I have played all week today, and I played really well this afternoon.
That was the best thing I ever saw, that 19th tee. I shouldn't have won today.
You shouldn't be able to come and play aa I'm not going to pick on Stephen Ames aa 10 holes and walk away with a lot of money. It's kind of weird, isn't it The guy at Tucson plays harder, makes a couple of bad shots on the last holes and makes 15,000, and he's played 72 holes really well.
I wasn't watching TV, the Weather Channel was on. I was eating a doughnut and sitting around, talking about what guys talk about in the locker room.
Even though it was an easy pin today and an easy day, still you've seen so many people mess it up over the years. It's such a famous hole. That was probably the only nervous shot all day, my tee shot on 12.
Some people believe in that this-is-your-week sort of stuff. If I win this week, maybe I'll start believing in that sort of stuff.
I've never been one of four people on a golf course and was waiting.
That wasn't very smart. It's not the first time (Woods) has been motivated by something someone said to the press. That probably wasn't the most clever thing. Any motivation for 18 holes can help.
