MODERATOR: Ladies and gentlemen,
Mark Wiebe shot a 68 today and finished 5 under par for the Championship.
Good finish on Sunday.
MARK WIEBE: Thank you, yeah. It was good.
Tell us what was the best about what you did today.
MARK WIEBE: Oh, boy, I had some mental discipline. I talked to my son a lot about my putting,
really was bad yesterday. Really bad. I think I had 35 putts yesterday.
I just needed to change, and it was
What did he tell you?
MARK WIEBE: Oh, my gosh.
He told me so many things that I was doing wrong and try to remedy
it. Hold still, line up the ball in the
middle of the club. I was too far open,
and it was kind of cutting across it, and I was taking it inside because I was
shut. So I had to feel like the club
face was open, like I was taking it outside, like I had it lined up on the
heel, and it was hard. That was hard
But I did it, so that's good. And I played well. My ball striking definitely was the highlight
of my week. My putting was not. Very happy with my play today, though.
So in essence, you taught your son the game. Basically, he was telling you what you told
MARK WIEBE: Well, he's my teacher. I'm his teacher, and he's my teacher. So I was talking to my teacher last night on
the putting green, while on the putting green.
In fact, he sent me a video while I was on the putting green, something
to look at for reference.
We took some videos, sent them back
to him, made sure I was doing the right thing.
And it was better. It wasn't
great today, but it was better.
I think I heard that you weren't sure really whether you liked the golf
course or not, but you were successful anyway.
Is that true?
MARK WIEBE: I like the golf course. I didn't know if it suited my game. I'm driving the ball really, really well
right now. So that part of it really was
good. I didn't know how my irons were
going to react on the greens this week, and I didn't know how I was going to
putt this week. I haven't been putting
So I liked the golf course, like I
said. I just didn't know if it was going
to like me.
Great finish. Thank you. Congratulations.
MARK WIEBE: Thank you very much.
