Q. The dry spell is seven years. How thirsty does it make you?
BOB TWAY: Oh, I don't know that I am any less thirsty or more thirsty than I was when I first started. I do know that my priorities have changed a little bit when I first came on TOUR it was just my wife and we traveled together and placed every single week and had nothing else to do. I have a boy 14 and a girl nine so I play and rush back home and fast as I can. Things in your life change. Your priorities change. I still enjoy playing. I don't know that -- I don't hit balls all day long like I used to, in some ways I probably could. I still enjoy it. As long as I can keen enjoying and playing well, I will keep doing it. I do think your priorities do change a little bit.
Q. The shot from the bunker, was that a life-changing event?
BOB TWAY: Well, I think it's obviously to help me win that golf tournament. But I think it's a shot that people remember, there is no doubt about that. I think when people think of that tournament or myself they think about that shot. I get asked about it all the time. From that standpoint I think that kind of sets your career in some people's eyes, but, you know, I don't know that it would have mattered. I'm just glad I won the tournament.
Q. Do you get tired of talking about that?
BOB TWAY: No, no, not at all. It's the highlight of my golf career winning a major tournament, no doubt about that. I keep thinking that, you know, maybe somewhere down the road I can contend or have a chance to win some more.
Q. Do you come in each week with the mindset that you can win that week?
BOB TWAY: Not every week. There is sometimes that I can just tell your game is not quite as good. There is some weeks that I feel like yes, I have a good chance if I play well. I don't think that -- I think years passed I think I had the mindset that I thought I could win more, but you never know. I think if I play well, hit the ball well, I think I'm a smarter player than I used to be. Like I said if I didn't think I would I probably wouldn't keep playing but I enjoy doing it.
Q. The shot from the bunker when is the last time that you saw it and did you ever go look at it for a boost of confidence or did you ever flip Golf Channel on?
BOB TWAY: Well, you know when PGA time comes around they are showing the different PGA's and I will see it then. Or maybe when the majors are going on they show it more. I haven't seen it lately but I still remember it.
Q. Just to get back to the course, because you played here so many years are you comfortable with this type of setup where they talk about moving the pins closer to the edges, more rough, narrowing the fairways when they can --
BOB TWAY: In general, that's all they have done is lengthen. I think there needs to be other things being done. You mentioned all of them - moving the pins to the edges, we never use to have three pins, sides, now we do. I just think people need to understand they need to narrow the fairways and not make them wider once you get passed the bunker, try to make it all the same width no matter if some hits it from 275, 300 or 325. Make it all the same, make it challenging for everyone. If you are able to do that with consistent rough that determines a whole lots of things. I think people have got straight back to length and not worried about the other things.
Q. You mentioned Tiger a minute ago. Does anything about him surprise you anymore taking two months off and coming back and doing what's he is doing?
BOB TWAY: I don't think anything that he does surprises me, but when he first came out if he would have said to me that he has been able to do what he has done I would have lost my house, my car, my children, I would have bet everything against it. I just didn't think it was possible. I really did not. He has opened all of our eyes to things that we didn't think were possible that are, obviously. And what he is able to do is just unbelievable, really. It's kind of like Jack Nicklaus, it's a Jack Nicklaus, it's a Michael Jordan, a Wayne Gretzky, Tiger Woods, they are just exceptional people. I think it's great, it makes me work harder, because thinking if he can do it maybe I can do it better myself. Everybody is getting better. Guys out here are working at it harder and getting better because of him, no doubt about it.
