Q. Was the driver new this week?
CRAIG PARRY: Yeah, brand new driver. It did pretty good, didn't it? It's one of the new Callaways.
Q. Your bogey-free streak was 48?
CRAIG PARRY: Yeah, and you wouldn't believe where I bogeyed. I bogeyed on 14, and I was that far off the green, and only 8 foot away from the hole.
Q. Have you had a streak like that?
CRAIG PARRY: I had 90 holes in Europe. For the guys in Europe, I made a bogey at Crans, on the shortest par-4 of the year. The one that goes downhill. I went 90 holes once without a bogey.
TODD BUDNICK: Let's go through your strokes on the birdies, there.
CRAIG PARRY: Driver at the second, chipped up with a 9-iron to about 6 foot.
And then third hole, hit 3-wood off the tee. I hit 8-iron into the green, 12 foot.
4th hole was 3-wood, 9-iron to about a foot.
And then on 9, I hit 4-iron to about 25 feet.
Then on 14, I hit 2-iron, sand wedge to about 12 feet.
Then 18 was driver, 3-wood to the front of the green, 2-putted, rolled it up to two foot.
Q. Any thoughts about what this victory will mean for your career now?
CRAIG PARRY: No, I really don't. My kids are getting older. I'm a family person. I only really come away for three or four weeks as a rule. And the kids are getting a little bit older. I missed my daughter's 10th birthday which was pretty tough. My youngest son was born the week of Augusta. My other son was born in October. And I like to spend time with them. I go to the soccer matches and run around with the kids and do that type of stuff. And I enjoy being with the family a lot. But sometimes it takes its toll on my schedule. I try and have all my holidays when the kids are on holidays. They have three lots of two weeks through the year in Australia. I've been fortunate enough to be able to have that time with them. We go away on my boat and have no TV and just play backgammon and chess and go snorkeling, and do all the normal things.
Q. What's the name of your boat?
CRAIG PARRY: OFF COURSE. That's where you'll find me.
Q. Craig, what's your background like; just in general, where you grew up?
CRAIG PARRY: I grew up in Melbourne, in Victoria. Went to West Australia when I was 17 and played state golf when I was 17, 18. Turned pro when I was 19. I won my first event, actually Victoria Island on the Canadian Tour, the TPC at Point Gray, I think it was. That was in '87. And joined the European Tour for four years. I won four times over there. And then came over here in '92.
Q. When you had that good run at the '92 Masters, did you assume that greater things were to come? Is it shocking in a way when you look back --
CRAIG PARRY: Two weeks later I finished third at Greensboro. I've had guys like Tom Lehman go birdie, birdie to beat me at Colonial. Phil Mickelson chipped in at the Byron Nelson one year on 16 for eagle. I think he ended up beating me by a shot. Nick Price was the hottest golfer in the '90s. He got me down at the Honda. And it was just a matter of -- I felt as though I was playing good and the other guys were just doing that little bit extra and beating me. And I've done that to everyone else this week, and that's good.
Q. What did you do to turn your putting around this week?
CRAIG PARRY: I just spent a lot of time on the greens. I bought a straight line, like a builder's string, and I can get a bit of chalk on it and practice straight putts. I was doing a lot of that, a lot of short game work this week.
Q. Are you going to celebrate this?
CRAIG PARRY: I am going to get blotto. (Laughter.) They might have to carry me off the plane tomorrow morning. I'm sure the Australian customs won't mind.
TODD BUDNICK: I think on that note we'll end. Congratulations, Craig, on your first victory on the PGA TOUR.
