Talk to me. I don't know.
00:03
I'm done with my day.
00:03
I kept it under 80, which was nice.
00:06
Yep.
00:06
Yep, broke 80. That--.
00:07
Goal achieved. That's about it.
00:08
That was about it. Yeah.
00:10
I think that,
00:10
this week, I haven't done the things I need to do
00:13
on the golf course to be near that league with those guys.
00:15
I've made too many dumb mistakes, but overall,
00:18
I think the turnout's been incredible.
00:21
The people that come out in support of this event now
00:23
with our elevation into invitational status.
00:26
The amount of awareness some of the, a lot
00:29
of the guys were coming up to me and said, Thank you for,
00:31
you know, having us but also thank you for, over the years,
00:34
of getting us started
00:35
into our own foundations and charities.
00:37
So. Yeah.
00:38
I think we've accomplished a lot this week,
00:40
and other than my play, it's been an incredible week.
00:43
Tomorrow, what will you be looking to try and get out
00:45
of that round?
00:46
Just like what Joey and I were saying.
00:49
If we just, like, get back
00:49
to even par, under par. Yeah.
00:51
That's always the goal when, you know,
00:54
I've gotten over par.
00:55
Is how can we get back to under par, and then if I'm so far,
00:58
like, in major championships where I've been,
01:00
so far, over par,
01:01
that's not realistic.
01:02
We'll shoot under par day, we'll shoot around a 60.
01:04
So having little mini goals.
01:06
I'm gonna try and do that tomorrow and, hopefully,
01:08
I can put it back together. What are you gonna try
01:10
and get out of your time at home?
01:11
More than anything, it's just get back in the gym
01:13
and start strengthening.
01:15
And I think that, spend a little more time with my putting.
01:20
That's not very good right now, so I'm gonna have
01:23
to do a little work.
01:23
And go back to basics and just hit, you know,
01:27
thousands of putts. Yeah, for sure.
01:28
And, lastly, schedule wise, how tough is that for you
01:32
to really figure out what you're doing?
01:34
And with the pressure as well of everyone trying
01:36
to figure out what you're doing.
01:37
That's the thing since coming back.
01:39
It's always going to be the persistent theme is
01:41
that how much do I push and not push?
01:43
Do I, how much do I play, you know?
01:45
I think last year was a great number, which was, what, 12?
01:49
But that's 12 more than I ever thought I would play again,
01:52
and so I gotta keep it in perspective.
01:54
And if I can somehow keep it
01:57
around a manageable number, play well in the big events,
02:02
and try and peak at the right time, you know.
02:04
I did that for, you know, one week last year.
02:06
I peaked at the right time and stole a Masters and,
02:09
you know, hopefully this year will be the same.
02:11
Absolutely.
02:12
Hopefully, you can put some things together
02:14
and then leave here feeling a little happier.
02:16
Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, all right.
02:17
Thank you. Thanks.
