Augusta, Ga. - I really hated to see the day come to an end.
It was a great day. It was awesome. I played a lot better today,
and I made some birdies and that was a lot of fun.
I wish I could have played better but I still enjoyed the
whole experience. I think the neatest thing was the birdie I made
on the ninth hole. I had like a 40-foot putt with 25 feet of
break and when that went in the place went crazy. There was a
huge roar. You want to have at least one of those when you play
here. You hear them everywhere else, and it's great to get
one more yourself.

Right now I'm mentally drained, but I'll look back and
really reflect on the week maybe next week and try to look at it
more objectively. I got the most out of this week, and that was
my goal. I have no regrets. I'm going to go home and spend
Easter with my family and do what I would do every year at this
time, which is sit on the couch and watch the finish on TV.
Now it's back to work on Monday. I lived in a fantasy land
this week and now it's back to the real world. It was fun. I
hate that it's over.
