“My year is slowing down a little bit lately. I haven’t been playing much. Just like on the regular tour, you know, I do play, and a long time ago, I played well. I played well for a long stretch of time. This year, at the beginning of the year, it was the same thing. I worked pretty hard in the off‑season to get ready for this year.
To win three times, I think it was obviously great, but surprising, but at the same time, I played really, really well and, as of today, I haven’t been playing much and my game is not really all that great, but I’m very excited to be here and to start playing again, so you never know.”
“There’s a lot more left this year, and I believe the only PGA Tour tournament I’m playing is going to be the Canadian Open, so I’ll focus on maybe at least eight more Champions Tour events, which is a lot. I mean, that’s 22 times this year and the most I’ve played since probably ’82, ’83, was 20 times, so I’m playing more this year than I have in 25 years, which is odd,.but it’s kind of a mixed year where I still wanted to play the (PGA Tour) a little bit and next year, I think will be totally different. I’ll focus mostly out here, but I’ll play a couple besides Augusta that I love playing.”
“(Wednesday) was interesting. We had three seasons in one day. We haven’t quite got to winter, but we encountered some spring, summer and fall. “
“Is there a hockey team here? You think of Montréal and you think of hockey, but I grew up in Minnesota, which, again, is a hockey state, and a football state, maybe the Vikings. People don’t understand, people in northern climates, they jam a lot of stuff into those winter months, so I’m not all surprised that golf is big in Montréal. I feel like people that are limited make the very best use of their time and they love to do anything with having to be outside, so I’m not surprised.”
“I can’t believe the infrastructure work that’s been done here for a first‑year event. I mean, I heard it’s been sold out here and they are expecting 15,000 a day to come out. “
“I think even for the practice rounds, you’re seeing a lot of people out here. There’s people out here for the pro‑am, so I know that the golf fans here are excited and I really hope the that we put on a really good show. I’ve heard nothing about great things about the golf up here. Unfortunately I didn’t play any of the years in the Canadian Open it was up here. I remember watching Mike Weir beat Tiger Woods (in the Presidents Cup) a couple of years ago.”
