ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “It felt good to get back on the right side of things again. It's been a tough year for me, just not playing up to where I think I'm capable of.

So it's kind of been an uneventful season for me, and now I think I'm playing some of my better golf, my best golf of the year. Got a lot of huge events left. So I'm excited about the opportunity in front of me, and probably one of the few guys excited about this last long stretch of golf, and can't wait to play a lot of golf and show that I'm playing good.”
