I had my opportunities to get in next week and I fell short on the Money List at the end of the year and I took two months off at end of the year and lost a bunch of standing in the World Rankings and I haven't gotten off to a very good start this year. So when you -- the way I look at it, the way the system is, you can't say anything about] it. It is what it is and if you're in, you're happy and if you're not, you're wishing you were. The bottom line is, if you play a little better, you'll still get in.
I think that they gave the Masters winner a re-do (ph) there, maybe they could give the PGA TOUR winners a re-do.
Q. But not enough to help this week, next week, with the eligibility, not enough to help this week?
BILLY ANDRADE: Yeah, I just always thought it was pretty cool, the guys that sucked it up around Augusta -- Davis Love get in one year and Stankowski got in one year. I just thought that was pretty cool. If you win a PGA event, you're in. I always thought that that was a wonderful thing.
The first thing any rookie ever said was, first thing, "I'm going to Augusta, that's my dream."
BILLY ANDRADE: Yeah, about six or seven of us, in 2000.
Q. Are there a lot of players that feel that way about that policy?
BILLY ANDRADE: I would say yes. I think this is the hardest tour to win on. I guess the argument is a lot of tournaments are opposite other tournaments. That's not our fault. It's not like the holes that are opposite, they make the hole bigger and it's easier to win. You've still got to shoot 17-, 18-, 21-under to win. I think Frank Lickliter, to win in Tucson, and still shot 19-under. I don't care, maybe the field wasn't as good as other weeks but he's still a winner on the Tour. I think that should add -- that should be huge value, whether it's an opposite event or not. If you're a PGA TOUR winner -- I remember it being a big thing. You got in a bunch of different tournaments and it's just that not that way anymore.
Q. Your first win, if you go back that far, where was the Masters, was that like one of the first couple?
BILLY ANDRADE: It was the first thing I think every player from the United States that grew up watching the Masters, that had never played in the Masters first time you win, I think that for me, it was -- I was an amateur, when I made that team I knew I was in Augusta. I wanted to buy a lot or I wanted to buy an apartment down there and just hang out for a couple of months.
TODD BUDNICK: Let's go through your birdies and your bogey.
BILLY ANDRADE: I bogeyed 1.
Came back and birdied 2. Hit a 9-iron and made about a 20-footer. Made a nice par putt. And then I hit it over the green in two and chipped up to about eight feet.
I birdied 13. I drove it just in front of the green and chipped up to about ten feet.
14, I hit a wedge to about ten feet.
16, I hit a 7-iron about five feet.
A little disappointed, I had a very easy up-and-down on the last hole and didn't get it up-and-down to birdie last, but again I'm happy with 68.
