It's a silly old game.
What I'm saying is that, unlike a lot of portrayals of me, I'm not hiding behind the sunglasses. I'm out there working. I'm not trying to sell anybody anything, but I do realize we're entertainers.
But just like I've always said when people complain about tee times, 'I just want a tee time. Just give me one so I can play.'
I've just been working hard, trying to get some good stuff to come out.
The best way to explain it is that I'm not yearning anymore, on or off the course. I appreciate what I have. I feel like I'm blessed.
When I'm swinging well, nobody hits the golf ball any better than I do.
But you know, I'm just not a quitter.
I've seen the bottom and I know the difference between good golf and bad golf.
I'm content. I want to have better success in the tournaments than I've had, but I know I'm playing well, so I'm happy with that.
I was in the middle of the golf tournament trying to make birdies and I was just having a blast. So that probably qualifies as having a greater appreciation.
You do what you need to if you're serious about playing great golf.
I slowly continued to compensate for the physical problems I was having and ended up completely destroying my swing, my set-up, my posture. Everything was gone.
I didn't do anything spectacular when I won the Open in 2001. I hit the ball good, not great. I putted good, not great, but I think I missed maybe two putts inside eight feet all week.
I realize what it means to be financially comfortable, and I want to be that. But I'm lucky enough to be in that position. And I'm also careful. I save 38 percent of my earnings after expenses, before taxes.
I love hitting the ball, controlling the ball. And yeah, even the roar of the crowd. I enjoy the roar of the crowd probably less than some players and more than some. But I'm not out here to be a celebrity.
