Q. What should be done to people with cell phones?
JOHN COOK: Just stop short of execution. There's no need for them on the golf course. That's ridiculous.
JOAN vT ALEXANDER: Can we go through your card, please.
JOHN COOK: Yeah. Started at one. And we played -- the first few holes were, the wind was different. It was into us and out of the right. So I hit a nice drive and 5-iron about 12 feet and made it.
Five I missed a short putt.
Six I hit a nice drive and 6-iron about eight feet.
Seven I missed a short putt about five-footer.
And 10 I hit a good drive and an 8-iron. About 10 feet. Made it.
11 I just laid it up and hit a wedge in there about four feet above the hole. And on normal years it would have been a frightening putt, but the greens are a little bit slower this year so it wasn't so scary and I made that.
12 I hit it just left of the green. Hit a nice pitch down about two feet. And misread it. I just misread the putt. And missed it to the right. Came back and birdied 13. Hit a drive and a seven iron about 12 feet. Made it.
15, hit a good drive, we played that hole -- now we're playing back into the wind, which doesn't make any sense. It just kind of switched. And hit a good drive and a three wood. I had like 240 to the pin. And hit it three feet.
And then 18 hit a 3-wood and a 6-iron about 12 feet left of the hole. Tapped it in.
Q. Any changes or tips or advice that got you playing this playing well this week in particular?
JOHN COOK: Played horrible yesterday. I can literally say I hit a couple good shots and took advantage of those good shots. And made some nice putts. I putted well yesterday. And figured out something on the range last night. And went with it today. It worked today. I just, I played real well at
New Orleans. And hit the ball like I normally used to hit it or hit it a lot like that last year. Early part of this year too. And when I don't hit the ball well, I am one of those guys I would rather hit the ball well and have 36 putts and shoot even par than hit nine greens and shoot even par. That's the way I was taught and that's just the way that I am. And yesterday it was ugly. But today I hit a lot of greens and hit a lot of good shots. Hit right in the center of the fairways most of the time. And just worked on something last night that I just felt -- I just felt off yesterday. I just thought of this last night on the range. And started hitting some drivers and catching it just right. And went all the way through the bag with it. Yeah. It was good.
Q. Ball position, stance thing?
JOHN COOK: Kind of ball position. Yeah. A little bit with the ball position. Head position. So always making adjustments.
JOAN vT ALEXANDER: Thank you, John, for joining us.
JOHN COOK: All right. Thank you.
