Q. What do you think it is about this course that lends itself to guys who maybe haven't had a lot of success in the past playing so well here?
TOM GILLIS: You know what, I don't think it's the golf course, I think it's the time of year that it falls. I think that it comes after a big, long run of tournaments like Byron Nelson, and all these tournaments where a lot of the Tour school guys don't get in. I think once they get here, the summer is here, and they know they can play a lot. And I really don't think it's the golf course. I don't think so. I think it's timing.
Q. Are you thinking at this point, let's make a big check this week, is that the primary thing?
TOM GILLIS: I said to a friend the other day, I've played so average this year, that I'll probably get 12 to 14 more starts. And I look at it as getting 14 more chances to win to keep my card. So the way I do that is try to win every week. So I could care less if I have a big check, because when it's all said and done one day, people aren't going to remember me from making a big check in the Kemper, but only if I win. I'm like everybody else, trying to win.
TODD BUDNICK: Could we go through your round? Start with the birdie on 4.
TOM GILLIS: Birdie on 4, I'm trying to remember, I'm so exhausted. I don't know the golf course that well. I made about a 30-footer, there, hit an 8-iron in there, and made a good, long putt.
And the hole after that I hit a wedge in there about 3 feet and made that.
3-putted 7. Hit.
Hit it close on 8, missed.
Next birdie came at I think -- well, 3-putted on 11, as well.
And then I made birdie on 13, the par-5. I hit an 8-iron in there about four feet, made that.
Next hole I hit a wedge in there about 3 feet and made that.
And then I made pars the rest of the way.
And on 18 I had a 6-iron in there, about 15 feet left of the hole and made it. It was a pretty solid round. Both days I haven't -- even today my playing partner is like I know you're disappointed with 3-under, because it could have been a lot lower, because I hit the ball pretty close all day. But what are you going to do?
Q. Is this the best position you've been at after two rounds, and are you looking (inaudible) --?
TOM GILLIS: This is the best position I've been in, obviously, I would say. Yeah, I hope I'm in the last group. I would love to be in the last group. It really doesn't matter much. I've still got to go play golf. I don't know, I feel pretty focused right now, where it doesn't matter who I'm playing, or the group I'm in. I've got a number in my head I know I have to get to to have a chance. So wherever I start tomorrow, first off or last off, I'm still trying to get to that spot.
