just can't do that. It's just very upsetting and very
Q. Talk about the four days that you were able to
have here.
WOODY AUSTIN: Pretty good four days as far as ball
striking and my short game was good, but I should
have won this tournament by a mile. I just putted so
bad. I missed so many. So many short putts. It's just
very aggravating.
Q. When you have a course that's this tough how
important is it to convert those?
WOODY AUSTIN: Well that's the whole thing, like I
said, I mean you get -- you're going to get some really
bad bounces like I did on the third hole today. I missed
the fairway by five yards in the air and that ball
bounced 30 yards dead left into the hay and I had to
chip out. And I only missed the fairway by five yards.
So you can't afford to 3-putt the first hole and then miss
it from five feet you know what I mean, you just can't
miss all the putts I missed this week. Because you
know that's going to happen. The last hole was
another example. I only missed the green by maybe a
foot and I had to swing at it like I was going to hit it 30
yards to hit it 12 feet. So, I mean there's just a lot of
silliness and goofiness to the golf course. You can't
afford to let those shots slide. And I let a ton of them
Q. Four straight birdies on the front nine, did you
think that you were going to continue that?
WOODY AUSTIN: Like I said, I made a couple. I 3putted the very first hole right out of the gate from 20
feet. Then I hit it in there close on number 4 and
missed that from about eight feet. Then I hit the par-5
in two and I almost 3-putted that. I hit my first putt six
feet by on that one. So I snuck that one in. Then I hit it
close on the next hole. Made that 6-footer. Then I
made those two, what I would say are bombs for me
that are normal putts for everybody else, but they're
bombs for me on 7 and 8. Then I go and I yip it from
three feet on No. 9. And then I miss a 5-footer on
number 11. And then I miss a 10-footer on 13. It just,
it just aggravates me, it's very, very aggravating to miss
as many as I have.
Q. After walking this for four or five days, I mean is
this a place you would like to come back to?
WOODY AUSTIN: I said it before, it's the wrong golf
course, the wrong design, for this piece of property.
That's the way I can say it. You can't build a Pete Dye
Stadium Course on a bunch of hills. It just makes it
stupid. So, as far as coming back to play, I can't see it
Q. With what, with the number and what Colin is
doing, is that pretty much, he's just been
consistent with -WOODY AUSTIN: Well, obviously, yeah, if you look at
it. I was consist tenths every day, too. I was never
worse than 1-over any day, so I never made more than
a bogey. But I never -- let's see I made four birdies -- I
made a grand total of 11 birdies in four days. I
guarantee you he probably doubled that. And like I
said, I missed so many, I missed -- I bet I missed at
least 30 putts 20 feet or less and you can't do that. You
