Q. You were talking yesterday how much pride you took in the fact that you get yourself in position; that you usually are able to pull it off. Most golfers invariably struggle the first few times they get in there and don't win, why is it that you think you've been a lot more successful in doing that?
NOTAH BEGAY III: I just love -- I love the friction. I live for it. I mean, it's not physical; it's mental. And there's so many things out there that whether we put things in our own path or they are put there for us, we have to deal with them. You have to have the heart and the courage to step over that putter, step over that shot and trust everything that you have put into it. That's the beauty about professional sports is that you have guys that love the pressure, that thrive under the pressure, and you have others that they don't.
I'm not saying that I haven't had my failures, but, you know, give me that chance to fail and I guarantee you I'm going to make the best of it.
Q. Do you think it's just growing up in that environment that helped you feel that way or do you think there's something sort of innate?
NOTAH BEGAY III: I think a lot of it is just you have that drive. I've been told, ever since I was a little kid, that I was extremely competitive.
But on the same token, once I'm off the course, I don't sort of take it with me everywhere I go. I'm fairly friendly from what I've been told. But I don't know what they say when I'm gone.
Q. Are you chomping at the bit to tee it up tomorrow?
NOTAH BEGAY III: Oh, definitely. Looking forward to it. Becoming more comfortable with being back in this position. Today was a great test for me. You always wonder, following up a good round, it's hard to follow up with another one, and very happy to have done that.
Q. I don't know if you were asked this last year when the movie came out, but what did you and your family think of that movie Windtalkers?
NOTAH BEGAY III: I think that effort itself was admirable. The historical context could have been richer. It could have had more factual information in there for the person that wasn't sort of composed to it, why the code talkers were enlisted and how this group of individuals who at the time were not even considered almost -- not even considered citizens, still left their families and left their homes where they had been put on reservations to basically volunteer for this country, is extremely, extremely admirable. To have that code be such a -- to have such an impact in that war, because just from some of the veterans that I've talked to, it was invaluable in taking Iwo Jima
JOHN BUSH: Thanks for coming by and good luck tomorrow.
