Q. Do you feel it coming back like you are in the groove out here now?
MIKE HEINEN: I have been playing pretty well and it helps that I was in 3 Tour events in a row because when play one event out here and you play two buy.coms, and one out here and you go play two buy.coms, you are running around and you don't know which Tour you are on. And this year it has been a help and my number is a lot better this year so I was actually in Milwaukee before the deadline, I am not showing up here like some guys this week where they are getting in Wednesday because somebody is withdrawing; they are flying all night and getting here Wednesday late and teeing it up blind and didn't know they were going to play in a tournament this week. So I am able to prepare myself, get ready; know which tournament I am going to play in and try to do it that way.
Q. When you know you are capable of winning is that frustrating when you can't just seem to keep it going?
MIKE HEINEN: It's been frustrating the last four years. Just you know, been playing and I just -- I don't feel like I am playing on the Tour I need to be playing on, and a lot of my peers around me are telling me the same thing. I need to be on the PGA TOUR, and I feel that way, so it's just -- but that's what is so great about this sport. Only reason I am not on the PGA TOUR is because I didn't play well. If I go out and play well I will be on the PGA TOUR. So I am the only one that can go and get it done. Nobody can take it away from me if I win this week, and nobody can take Houston away from me, so --
Q. Was it ever a point where you felt like you weren't playing well enough to be on the Tour?
MIKE HEINEN: I think everybody feels like that at one point or another. But no, actually, I struggled a little bit when I first lost my card the first year or two just kind of going from being full exempt on the PGA TOUR to playing buy.coms and not getting in Tour events. It was tough, but you know, I was still young. I was, you know, you go out there and you play the Buy.com Tour and you see guys that are playing on the Ryder Cup team and won 7, 8, ten times and they are playing the Buy.com and you are thinking, man, if these guys can suck it up and play this Tour, I need to do it. And so it's just -- I am glad that the Tour is there. 15 years ago they didn't have that Tour and it was no place for a guy like me to go play. So I am able to go out there and play and haven't -- I played pretty well out there and I made a little bit of money, but kind of just paying the bills, but it's hopefully preparing me for the rest of this week.
