Q. The putt on 17, how huge was that?
ROBERT GAMEZ: I was playing well all day and I actually didn't have that bad a lie in the rough. It was one of those lies where the grass was growing with me. It's one you could actually shoot out pretty good, so I kind of decelled on of the chip, thinking it was going to shoot and take off on my. So I was little disappointed with the chip. But it was a huge putt, because after making four birdies in a row, I had some adrenaline going. And as soon as I hit it, I knew it was good. I mean, halfway there I said this is perfect, if it just gets there, and it was a nice putt to make.
ROBERT GAMEZ: I won by four.
Q. What do you remember about that shot?
ROBERT GAMEZ: Well, I didn't play with him the last day, but all I know is I had a 6-shot lead going into the last hole and made double. I was so nervous on the last hole. I made a good 10-footer for double on the last hole.
Q. Do you remember the last time you were 10 under on tour?
ROBERT GAMEZ: I can't remember.
Q. It has been that long?
ROBERT GAMEZ: After two rounds -- it's been a while. I played good in Hartford a few years ago, but not this well.
Q. And you said you played 5 tournaments this year?
ROBERT GAMEZ: This is my fifth tournament but my 4th on the regular tour. I played in Lafayette a couple of weeks ago on the Buy.Com.
Q. So you're well rested?
ROBERT GAMEZ: I'm well rested. I can look at it a couple of different ways. I haven't played very much so I don't know how I'm going to play, or I'm well rested. That's the thing. I felt really good. Last year I got a little bit run down at the end of the summertime and I missed 11 cuts in a row last year at one point. It's hard to stay confident that way. But right now I feel great. I'm playing well. I am rested, mentally and physically, and I can go out and have some fun this weekend.
Q. Rocco said that back in '90 you had something in you that let you win that's still there. Do you believe it's still there?
ROBERT GAMEZ: It's still there. That's what I was talking about earlier. I know inside I can get there. I can get back to where I was. It's just a matter of letting it come out. And like I said, being aggressive is the way that helped me to win when I first came out, and helped me to have a bunch of good finishes and I had a few runner-up finishes and lost a playoff to Couples at the Honda Classic one year, but that's how I played. I was aggressive and played that way the whole time and that's how I decided to come in this week.
Q. If you were to win, no telling what would happen?
ROBERT GAMEZ: We'll see. I kind of feel that way as well. It would get me over that hump. There is just this hump I have to get over to get back to where I need to be, and it's being able to pick a schedule and stick to it and knowing ahead of time that I'm going to play somewhere, instead of right now they call me Monday morning and tell me I'm in the event, or I've had it in the last few years where they call me on Tuesday night and say I'm in or whatever. It's tough to play that way.
Q. (Inaudible) would aggressiveness be the key for you?
ROBERT GAMEZ: That's what I'm going to do. That's my plan.
Q. When you come out on tour and have the success you did, do you get caught up in the I'm a star, this is the good life, get caught up in the hoopla?
ROBERT GAMEZ: I didn't get caught up in the "I'm going to be a star" thing. I did get caught up in just having some fun. I mean, just going out and -- you know, I would rather be away from the golf course back then. And there were times, because of the way I used to putt, I mean, I used to be a streaky putter, and a lot of it was when I didn't play well the first day or wasn't putting well, I didn't feel -- why practice if it's not going to work. I would practice, and I'd practice my putting and it just wouldn't get any better, it would get worse, so I just said I'm not going to do it. It's just stupid. Instead of getting help for it, like I should have, instead of seeking somebody -- I started working with Bob Rotello not this past year, but the year before, right after Q-school out in the desert, I should have made it easily, I missed by 3, I missed 10 or 15 three-footers in the six rounds, so I should have made it, I called him on the phone and I said I need help, because I just wasn't getting better. I knew I had the touch to be a good putter. I knew because I'm a good chipper and pitcher around the greens, and I knew I had the touch to do it. I just couldn't get out of my way. I was so mechanical and now I have no mechanical thought whatsoever when I putt. That's the same way I play golf. I don't have mechanical thoughts when I'm playing golf. I don't think about my swing. I don't think about anything. I just think about where I want the ball to go. And I had lost that in my putt, in my short game, and Bob has helped me to free up and just make strokes again and it's starting to pay off.
Q. So you're old and wiser now, where you were younger and stupid?
ROBERT GAMEZ: Exactly. It's one of those things where I want to be aggressive this weekend, but I'll know when to back off. I think that's the thing. That's one thing that I have done, and have learned is that I know when I should back off.
