Being prepped and being ready
00:07
for the big events, it's one thing, but controlling
00:11
the anxiousness, the need to feel like I need
00:15
to do more at an event,
00:17
I think that's where a lot
00:19
of my past experiences has helped.
00:21
I don't really spend a lot
00:23
of time searching forward on the range,
00:26
searching for the putting grain or chipping grain.
00:28
I have always felt that I do my best work away
00:32
from the sight, and then when I go there,
00:35
I go there to win.
00:36
Well, building my game up in the off weeks
00:39
for a major championship.
00:42
I don't know if it's right to say it or not,
00:43
but sometimes sacrificing a tournament here there,
00:47
working on a few things knowing
00:49
that the bigger picture things will pan out.
00:55
Trying shots that I probably shouldn't try in some events
00:58
It's something the looks good.
00:59
may pay dividends down the road.
01:02
Sometimes
01:05
it works out.
01:05
I end up winning that event,
01:07
but the bigger picture's trying to get mind, body,
01:10
and soul coming together for four times of year.
