As the game has progressed to what I consider a pure power game, this golf course still stands up. It's a position golf course, and it's a penal golf course. If you miss it off-line, you're penalized big-time.

You just never know where life is going to take you, you never know where your talent level is going to be and timing is everything.

It's a shot-maker's golf course. And it's not a one-dimensional type golf course.

I had a terrible West Coast swing but I've figured some things out and I'm feeling pretty good heading into this week.

Sometimes I think I'm better remembered for the Skins skirt than for winning the Players.

We flew over coming in, and you could see just how sparse it looked compared to what it used to look like. But the playing part of the course still looks the same.

Major-wise, it's pretty comparable, ... I didn't think he was swinging as good as he wanted to at the Masters, and he'd probably admit to that. U.S. Open, he really played pretty solid. British Open, obviously that venue he loves. He's awfully good. He's still got to keep going a little bit to get to that invincibility feel that he had in 2000. But he's putting a pretty good spin on it right now.

You've got to be in the right place to score on it. The greens are such small targets. It's a really good golf course, because it doesn't favor big hitters.

I had some opportunities that I took advantage of, but missed a couple and made a couple of really good saves.
