Q. How does it feel to be the first repeat champion? No one's done that before and it's hard to do.
DAN QUINN: It's great. And I did start thinking about it yesterday on the 11th green, when I saw -- Rick started out good, so I was focused and playing my round just trying to shoot a good score well into the 60s. And I saw he made a couple of bogeys went to 1-over, I was 3-under and nobody else was near there, maybe Dick Anderson was, and I started thinking about repeating, and I made two bogeys just like that.
Yesterday I was not able to turn it back on. So I was probably in that predicament again today. I was worried about making some mistakes and can I turn it back on after coming out thinking I had to come out and shoot a round well into the low 60s.
Q. How much were you able to enjoy today?
DAN QUINN: The first part was sort of blurry. I was like in that zone-type thing, just hit all good shots and didn't make any mistakes.
Then I really enjoyed probably the last four or five holes. But once I parred 14, birdied 15, I didn't really feel nervous, even though I hit a bad shot on 17. I hit the face of the club on every shot after that, had good pace on my putts, left myself some tap-ins and that's all I wanted to do.
Q. But any money on yourself this year?
DAN QUINN: I bet on me and Tiger -- 2 to 1. But I did take me and Tiger at 5 to 1; so I get a nice souvenir.
Q. What's your next tournament, celebrity or otherwise?
DAN QUINN: We have one in two weeks in day on, Ohio. Two or three weeks. I play some stuff in Florida; we'll see. I don't know what I'm going to do. There's a little mini-thing do you know in Florida where I live that I sometimes play in. Right now, I'm scheduled to play but I get back on a red-eye tomorrow morning to Fort Lauderdale, probably be a little hung over.
Q. What was your mind set going on 18, what were you thinking about then?
DAN QUINN: You know, I wanted to hit driver and finish strong but I said, this is just stupid. If I hit a 3-iron in the fairway I probably can't make a bogey, and even if I made a bogey Rick would have to make an eagle for me to go to a playoff.
So even though I wish I could have stood up and hit a driver, hit a 7- or 8-iron, 6-iron on the green, I just hit a 3-iron, 6-iron and punched a 60-degree, and once Rick didn't make his eagle, I knew I could just two or 3-putt to win.
It was just a weird thing; it was totally unexpected after five holes to have a five- or six-shot lead, whatever it was. But I'd rather have that than come down tied on the last hole.
