Q. You gave up on the Claw; is that right?
DAVID PEOPLES: I did try it quite a bit last year, maybe six or seven events. For some reason, I putted great the very first week I tried it, but then I struggled a little bit with it and I'm not sure why. There might be some things about it that I wasn't doing the right way or whatever, but before I left home, my teacher, Brian Bonk, he looked at me stroke and he said, "You're stroking it as good as I've ever seen you."
Who knows why. I didn't play good in the Pro-Am, and I saw him and he goes, "How did you play?"
"Not very good." I just came out -- well, he said it was good, so I'm just going to believe it, and it's been pretty good these last two days. Just conventional, reverse overlap.
Q. So you're bucking the trend with people going to the Claw?
DAVID PEOPLES: I go back and forth. I mean, if you'd have seen me last woke as Doral, I had a belly putter and I had an open stance, closed stance, I Clawed it for a while. I did everything. I went home with about six or seven different putters. And I missed the cut, too. So this week, I'm using one putter.
Q. Can you talk about winning out here, what do you think is the thing that has held you back and what is the thing that makes you think that you can win now?
DAVID PEOPLES: That's a good question. Well, just trying to apply all that I've learned about the mind, you know, your mind and trying to let your subconscious work a little more. I've got a lot of people from a swing coach and -- I don't know how you say it now. You know a lot of guys get help with their mental side of the game; so do I. It's a matter of applying what you learn.
So if I'm trying to stay as disciplined as I can to what I learned from him, if I do that, good things tend to happen. So I would have to say that over the years, I probably have not been an overly positive person on the golf course and that's kept me from playing as good as I'd like to.
