DAVIS LOVE III: Off the course. Like I never hit -- I never hit balls for more than an hour and a half this week because what happens is I get out there and get excited, and it's like college. I haven't played for two weeks and then there's a tournament coming up so I cram for the exam and pound balls for two days. I'm trying to spread out the ball hitting rather than doing it in a day or two. I like hitting balls when I'm working on something.
My problem is I procrastinate and do it on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and then go to a tournament and I've beat myself up. I've been talking to some friends and some doctors and they said you need to practice all of the time rather than just some of the time, and I try to play catch-up. I know -- was it in 2000 Retief won the U.S. Open? That year I was hitting 20 balls to warm up, no balls after I played, and it got better. I was playing my normal schedule, but because I practiced the right way, it got better while I was playing rather than worse, and that's where I need to be.
I'm starting my 19th year on the Tour next year. I ought to have it figured out that I don't need to practice 10 hours a day. I don't need to rebuild my swing, I don't need to stand out there on the range with Vijay, I just need to do maintenance consistently.
Q. Are you going to hire Freddie at all for his relaxation techniques?
DAVIS LOVE III: I need to. Going to Hawaii to watch Oliver surf for December, so it would probably be smart to hang out with him more rather than the guys I'm hanging out with.
Q. What do you do on the tractor?
DAVIS LOVE III: Just playing stuff and mowing stuff and pushing stuff over, just doing tractors, farm work. I've got four John Deere tractors.
