Q. You have an unusual routine when you're putting, you look at the cup, and return your eyes to the ball, and the second time you return your eyes to the ball you putt it, is that what you do?
ROBERT GAMEZ: I've been doing that -- I started doing it the end of -- after I missed the qualifying school in 2000 in Palm Springs, I went to see Bob Rotella and he got me to start doing that, because I was watching my stroking back. I was watching the putter go back as I was making the putt. So my head was moving the wrong way. My head was moving this way, as I was trying to hit the putts, and so I was standing wide open. I actually take the putter back before my head starts coming back to the hole. That's what I try to do. And that's when I putt my best, because I'm not watching it. My blade is coming through when my head is back to square, and I don't move my head, I seem to make better strokes that way.
JOE CHEMYCZ: Take us through your round, birdie on 10.
ROBERT GAMEZ: I had 121, hit a wedge pass the hole. Spun it back, and had a 6-footer and made that.
Then I birdied the par-5, 13, I had a driver and a 3-wood, short right of the green, and chipped it to about 2 feet and made that.
14 I hit a 4-iron off the tee, and hit an L-wedge, came back to about 12 feet, made that.
And then 15, that's the 1 putt. I hit a 5-iron over the bunker, rolled to the left and I had about a 20-footer up and over the slope and I made that putt. That was a good putt. I lipped out on 18, and -- I lipped out a putt on 18, lipped out on 1. Those were about 30 footers.
Then I birdied -- 3-putted 4. I missed a short putt at 2 from about 8 feet for birdie, and then on 4 I 3-putted on 4. I hit it by the hole, my second shot had about a 20-footer or something like that, 25-footer, hit my first putt by about 3 feet and lipped out.
Then I birdied the next hole. Hit a good sand wedge about 15 feet and made that.
And then on 7, hit a good 5-iron left the hole-b 20 feet and made it.
And then on 8, I was on my downswing and a butterfly flew right in front of my ball. I hit it right, hit it in the bunker and hit a poor bunker shot. You know, being over at Woodmont the last few days, I didn't get to practice out of the bunkers, and didn't practice chipping out here. I thought it was going to be fluffier, and it came out and the club stuck and I hit it short. It was a bad bunker shot and had about a 30-footer and 2-putted.
I hit it left of the hole on 9 and made it.
