I am disappointed, but at the same time, I felt like i played pretty well. It was awfully hard out there. i made a few key little putts. i needed another birdie, but instead, I bogeyed the last three holes. But, I’m happy with the way I played, obviously, I had a lot of people out there supporting me, but I just couldn’t make many birdies today. It was just too tough.

I wasn’t tired on the 16th green and then after I three-putted, I was exhausted and now I’m finished. I haven’t played 54 holes in that short of span in a long time. I’m pretty tired, and my back is holding up so that’s a good sign.

Well, I felt pretty good about my swing. I’ve worked hard on it for the last seven days since I got here in town. I’m going to get ready [for Augusta]. I look forward to next week; it’s my all-time favorite place.
