DAVIS LOVE III: No. I mean, like they just said on TV, he's won 21 times and he's, you know, still a young guy and, you know, he wins because of the way he plays. You know, you're not going to win out here laying up. I like the way he plays. And I saw him out there at 15 -- not 15 -- 13, laying up or playing out to the right, and I said, "Well, that's not Phil," and he almost chipped it in, you know, so he knows when to pick his spots and when it's smart.
And he made me be a little bit more aggressive because I was in a position where I had a perfect club to be aggressive, and I thought, "If Phil were right here, what would he do?" And I went for it. I asked my caddie, "What do you think Phil hit?" He said, "He hit a hard 7," so I hit a hard 7.
I think you've got to play aggressive if you want to win. You know, he wasn't trying to hit it up there 20 feet and 2-putt and see if anybody else made a bogey on 18. He was trying to dunk it just in base somebody did birdie 18.
Q. Davis, you're obviously disappointed in not winning, but you said you hit the ball better than you did yesterday. How encouraged are you by this week?
DAVIS LOVE III: Well, I'm making improvements. Obviously, at the beginning of the year, I wasn't playing up to my standards, and obviously, I wish I would have played more like this last week, been in more fairways. But we're pointing towards Muirfield now, and this just gives me confidence for Chicago and that I'm ready to play the next Major. I would have liked to have won here because it's the last Canon tournament. That would have been an exciting twist. But I'm pretty happy with the state of my game.
TODD BUDNICK: Okay. Thank you very much, Davis.
DAVIS LOVE III: All right. Thank you.
