On Last Year’s WD With Him Leading At Glen Abbey
“I remember waking up and going through my normal routine and getting out to the course and excited how I was playing that week and kind of halfway home to trying to win this event and then getting the phone call.
It was kind of pretty shocking. Then, trying to get the pieces to get home was kind of like the next step. I don’t think it really hit me until I got to the hospital, like this is for real, this is really happening, because it was so early.
She was three weeks early, so the process of beginning to think your baby is coming never really hit me. It never really started until we were in the hospital and things were moving.
It started with shock and then it was kind of like how do I get home and that was the next kind of plan, so it was a little bit of frantic, a little craziness, and then calm on the plane like I can’t really do anything, I just have to wait until I get there.”
The Timing Of Baby Zoe’s Arrival
“It’s always one of those things for golfers – what if, if you had to go home and you were in the lead on Sunday or Saturday or something like that. It’s kind of one of those crazy things you think about and you discuss with your family and your wife and whatever, but most of the time it never really happens, so it’s kind of a crazy thing that happened.
It’s kind of neat that we have the video of it all happening and going down and then the newspaper clippings and all that stuff, so it’ll be a fun story to show her and kind of tell her about, about how she kind of entered the world.
It’s pretty neat.”
How Life Has Changed In The Past Year
“It’s amazing what happens from being two people just in a marriage, a husband and wife, and all of a sudden, having a third person in the world changing everything and it changes everything overnight, too, from one day to the next.
“From Friday, me playing, finishing up here and just playing golf and then basically, Sunday morning I’m a father and I’ve got this girl I’ve got to take care of for the rest of my life. You never know what can happen in life, that’s for sure.”
