Q. Where were you at when it got stolen?
JEFF BREHAUT: In my house. I had the garage door open and the light on.
Q. Where is this at?
JEFF BREHAUT: Sunnyvale, California. It's a nice neighborhood.
Q. Do you just freak out when something like that happens?
JEFF BREHAUT: Yeah, I know the garage door came down at nine o'clock because my wife said: "Hey, the garage door is still up, I forgot to put it down." The cars were in the driveway and we were going to put them in. So she puts it down, movie is over about 9:45. I go to get my bags, I have a dozen clubs, spares that I go through trying to decide which ones I'm going to bring, and I'm like, "Honey, where are my clubs, did you move them someplace?" No; that's not funny. So we called the cops, they came over and they were all gone.
Q. Was it somebody that knew you were a golfer and came looking for them?
JEFF BREHAUT: No, we don't have any idea. All I can imagine is that somebody drove past my street, saw my TaylorMade bag standing up in there and tip-toed in. They took probably 24, 25 clubs.
Q. Did you get everything back in your bag now the way you want?
JEFF BREHAUT: Well, I guess it would be hard to complain today. I'm happy with all of the stuff I have, but just there's some things that I need to hit some more to learn what my tendencies are, with my 3-wood, my driver, my putter, whatever. You kind of get a little learning curve on what you can and can't do with your clubs. They worked pretty well today.
Q. So will you go to range now?
JEFF BREHAUT: Yeah, I want to do some more work with my wedges and my 3-wood, because if the wind turns back, you have to play a lot of 3-woods. The first two 3-woods I hit off the first hole and the third hole, I hooked them pretty good. So I was thinking, oh, boy because I wasn't doing that in the practice round and I did it a little bit yesterday afternoon when I was practicing. So I want to get that one straightened out, but I'm hitting the driver real well.
Q. Pros being as particular about the specs of their clubs, was it -- did it take one day to get your bag the way you wanted it?
JEFF BREHAUT: Three days. Monday morning, I came here about 8:00. I flew in on Sunday night and we started working on the irons. I was playing in a Monday Pro-Am at 12:30, so when I came, I brought one driver, two wedges and an umbrella. (Laughter.)
So I figured I'd better get out there early Monday morning and get a set of irons put together, start on my driver because I knew the one that I brought, I really didn't like, but I just wanted to bring one anyway just to have one.
So we got the irons put together. I was using wedges that I had played a few years in the past that I didn't want to stay with those because I liked the new ones better.
So the second day, we started with some more drivers, because on Monday, I found the right head, but I didn't have a good combination of shaft. So I ended up going back to my original shaft and this new head and that got locked in pretty nice. I felt good about the driver.
Then yesterday, I spent the whole day with the putter and my wedges. So my wedges arrived yesterday about one o'clock. I was going to the trailer, trying them, shafting them, weighing them, cutting them to length and making them the right ground. I took them over to the chipping green and I had about ten of them and I picked two.
So I had to hit them all a bunch, pick from the bunker, I was writing on the backs of the wedges, this one is pretty good, this one is not so good. Then I could kind of widdle it down to a couple and pick one out.
Q. How amazing is it to have a grab-bag set of clubs and not make a bogey out here and shoot 63?
JEFF BREHAUT: I don't know, I can't explain it. But they work good. My irons were going the right distances. I already knew what all of my specs were and I knew how I like the bottoms of them ground. I was -- I felt pretty good about my irons. Once I settled on the driver, I felt like I was in good shape.
Q. You know what they are going to say now: This course is such an easy course that you can go out with any old set of clubs.
JEFF BREHAUT: I don't know about that.
Q. The way this course is playing today, maybe we need a couple more days to got a better feel, would you compare it to the shooting gallery that you get at the Hope every year?
JEFF BREHAUT: No. That's a little bit more -- those courses are shorter, tighter, condos everywhere. I don't think this course is as easy as the courses at the Hope.
JOHN BUSH: Jeff, congratulations on a great start. Keep that garage door closed next time.
