Q. Been on a hot streak for a couple of weeks -- (inaudible)?
JONATHAN KAYE: I have been playing pretty well most of the year. Lately I have been playing a little better. Hopefully that will continue and I don't really know why. Maybe it is because I have just played so many in a row that I am just beat up and my mind is fried and I am just playing golf; I am not really thinking that much.
Q. How long?
JONATHAN KAYE: I have been out on the road since the week before the British so I guess eight weeks out. That's a long time. I had a week off but I had to go enjoy my membership privileges at Westchester for a few rounds and I may have took a week off went up there for a few days; saw some friends then headed to the International early. But it's nice to sleep in your own bed, so I look forward to that after this week.
Q. What do you mean by that, membership privileges after you won at Buick?
JONATHAN KAYE: They gave me a membership at Westchester. So I had to go play. Yeah, every champion gets a year membership so I have some relatives up there that support me and they come out every year and dredged through the mud out there so I figured it would be a nice thing to do to take them out and play that course.
Q. What tournament was that?
JONATHAN KAYE: What is before the International?
JONATHAN KAYE: No, right after Hartford. Whatever is in between Hartford and --
JONATHAN KAYE: Yeah, I skipped Flint.
Q. How many rounds did you play in Westchester?
JONATHAN KAYE: I was there for three days. We played Winged Foot, Glen Arbor and Westchester.
Q. You challenged several times in the pack; finally got over the hump. Was there anything in particular leading up to that that --
JONATHAN KAYE: I always felt that I could win. I'd had a lot of close calls but sometimes out here, sometimes you are best isn't just quite good enough because somebody else's is just a little bit better. I got a few good breaks as most people who win tournaments do and I capitalized on them. The good bounces went my way that week and my game is pretty solid right now and I am just looking forward to challenging tomorrow.
Q. Have your bronzed your 2-iron yet (inaudible)?
JONATHAN KAYE: That's kind of a club that comes and goes (2-iron) in my bag depending on the course. This week I don't need it here, so it's not making an appearance. But I haven't bronzed it yet, no.
MODERATOR: Let us go through your card. Birdie on No. 2 first.
JONATHAN KAYE: 2 was a par 5, I hit it in two and 2-putted from about 30 feet.
I birdied No. 4, made about a 15-footer for birdie there.
Birdied No. 7. One foot putt. Hit a lob wedge in there a foot and bogeyed 8. Then had about an 8-footer on 10, four-footer on 11, a three-footer on 12; missed two short ones on 13 and 14. Had a two-footer on 15. About a 4-footer on 16 for birdie; and then missed a makeable putt on 17. 18 was a 2-putt from, I don't know -- as far as you can have on that green. (Laughs). The bogey was just one bad swing, I was actually in pretty good shape. I just hit a poor -- two bad swings, bad shot and bad chip and a bad putt and tapped in for the bogey and that was it.
Q. Have you ever been on a stretch this long where you played this well?
JONATHAN KAYE: This seems to be a good time of year for me historically throughout my career. The summer months it's so hot back home that there's no reason to go there, so I tend to stay out and play a lot in the summer.
Q. Playing next week?
JONATHAN KAYE: No.
I will make a few more appearances (the rest of the year) but I think my schedule is winding down.
Q. Have you ever played THE TOUR Championship before?
JONATHAN KAYE: No, I haven't.
Q. Where are you now?
JONATHAN KAYE: I think I am 14th, so, yeah, I look forward to having an opportunity to play there if I can get in.
MODERATOR: Thank you, Jonathan.
