“This year’s been great. I think it’s shown that my growth personally has paralleled my growth in golf. but the first part is more important to me.”

“But there are a lot of guys who have had great careers and haven’t been able to win.”
“If I’m going to define my career on that I’m probably setting myself up for failure.”

“The recovery has been good, it wasn’t the best way to start yesterday, but I stayed patient.”
“My game’s good and numbers are going to happen like that [triple-bogey at the 12th on Friday] once in a while.”
“I just need to pick off my birdies and that’s what I did yesterday to get back to even par.”
“It was a bit of a mixed bag on the front nine, but I was really happy to shoot 67 to put myself back in to the tournament.”
