Q. Are you disappointed you didn't feed off the momentum of your earlier victory and great finish?
DAVIS LOVE III: I'm just disappointed I didn't play well on the back nine. I don't want to analyze it that much. I just didn't play that well and I didn't hit good putts starting off the back nine after eagling and birdieing at 8 and 9. Just disappointing when you're playing well not to win no matter what's happened earlier in the year.
Q. You said that the wind was getting tricky towards the end, but after the way the players have had their way with this course the first three days does it just get tougher down the stretch to hit the same shots you've been hitting the first three days?
DAVIS LOVE III: Yeah, definitely, those holes, 15 through 18 can be some easy holes or if you don't hit good shots, obviously could be very hard holes. I think that was the difference. Coming down the stretch, we were a little bit tired and some tricky shots; and you don't free-wheel it quite as good, and it showed more on those holes than it would finishing on the other nine.
Q. 15 wins, and then you talk about not playing well on the back nine. Obviously, you know how to finish, is that just golf today, your letdown is not having your game you wanted going to that 10th tee?
DAVIS LOVE III: I hit good shots, right at it off the tee at 10 and pretty good shot into the green and missed the putt. Hit a good shot that got stood up a little bit by the wind at 11 and didn't make the putt. Hit good shots at 12. I was hitting it -- I was hitting good. I just wasn't getting real close and wasn't making the putts. I hit two good shots at 13 and a good shot at 14.
So I was doing good, really, until 15. I don't think it was much of a letdown. I just didn't hit good ones when I needed to and that's disappointing.
I was positive the whole way except for maybe 16 I was a little undecided on my tee shot on 16, and that's the one that I'm going to kick myself the most over and after that I was forcing it probably at 17 and 18.
Q. What was your club at 16 and why were you uncertain?
DAVIS LOVE III: Well, Justin had hit a 7 and then Chris pulled out a 9 and I was thinking a little 7 or 8 before that and -- I just never got 100% committed what I was trying to do. I needed to turn the 8 over and I had seen Chris turn it over and he needed to cut it, and I had seen Justin cut it over in the swamp. I just never decided 100% what I was trying to do. That's the mistake I should not make. I can live with making a bad swing but I just never got 100% into the shot and in the end that probably cost me the tournament. If I had hit an 8-iron on the green, had a birdie putt, maybe it would have been a different story, so that's the one that's going to bother me the most.
