Tim Petrovic

Naples, Florida, USA

Tiburón Golf Club

Quick Quotes

Q. All right, Tim, a great week here. Unfortunately not quite enough to catch Bernhard, but overall thoughts on the week.

TIM PETROVIC: Germans win the gold again, jeez, unbelievable. Shocker.

You know, first event of the year. Yeah, you know, I really didn't know what to expect. I felt good, but I had some new irons, new Tour Edge irons this week and hitting them great, but you don't know until you get on the golf course.

But, you know, just really solid all around. I putted really well the first two days. I left a couple out there today, and I think that was the difference on the front nine. Kind of took the wind out of the round.

I battled back. I battled back yesterday. Started off over par and just kept hammering away and giving myself chances and just fall a couple short.

Q. What were the irons you hit at 13, 14?

TIM PETROVIC: Oh, yeah, that was -- let's see, 13, yeah, just I hit a nice 5-iron just straight at it. That was probably my best swing I made all day.

And then I caught a break. I did catch a break on 14 because I hit a little wedge in there and I think it flew a little far and it hit the pin and kept it there. It might have gone over the back. I wasn't that sure, but I think we caught a break there.

And then it's funny, one of the best shots I hit all day was my 2-iron into 15, and it somehow ended up over the green in the back and I really had a tough putt up that slope. I tried to make it; ended up making par. So that was disappointing I think. Hit such a good shot there and then coming away with 5, you're kind of at the mercy of what kind of bounce you're going to get.

You know, I came in maybe a little bit lower than I wanted to, and I think that's why it might have just hit hard. Probably don't want to watch the replay.

Q. First putt went by?

TIM PETROVIC: Yeah, it was tough. It was uphill, sidehill. It was kind of up. You had to make sure you get it on and then it was going down. It was a hard shot. I wanted to make sure I got it to the hole so I had an uphill putt and I didn't hit a very good putt; I left it short.

I think I hit a nice wedge into 17 and left that short. Hit a real good drive off the tee right around the corner. Had a little wedge in there.

Overall, I'm happy. I'm obviously disappointed I didn't get the victory, but overall I think I got to just look at the positives. Look at the positives.

Q. What are your thoughts on a 64 year old still out there still winning golf tournaments?

TIM PETROVIC: Well, he shot his age again this week. It's unbelievable. I think he's just -- obviously he's comfortable winning. We already know that. But he's just efficient. He's efficient in everything he does: Working out, eating, drinking, practicing.

I think that's the way -- he's not that way because he's 64. I think he's been that way his whole life. You know, I wish we had heart monitors on us out there. I want to know what his heartbeat is coming down the stretch. Probably half of what we are.

Yeah, just somehow just gets himself calmed and just always has a routine. I think that's important, stay in your routine.
