ANSWERS: “My main goal was just to get 100% healthy. I knew if I could get 100% healthy, everything else would take care of itself. I feel like getting your first one can sometimes be the toughest one to get, and I feel really good about my game, and hopefully I can start getting some more wins.”--Patrick Cantlay.
