PGA CHAMPIONSHIP


August 9, 2013


Sonny Skinner


ROCHESTER, NEW YORK

Q.テつ I guess obviously not the greatest week, but you got to play in another major championship, so how would you describe your rounds or your week?
SONNY SKINNER:テつ You know, just being here is a tremendous accomplishment, especially for a 53‑year‑old that qualified through the club pro ranks.テつ Very appreciative to the PGA of America.
You know, I had envisioned playing better than this.テつ I know I can play better than this.テつ I thought I was a straight hitter, but I didn't hit it very straight this week.テつ I didn't hit enough greens.
It was a pleasure to be here.テつ I played with two wonderfully talented young men.テつ They were gentlemen.テつ The atmosphere of it all is so rewarding.テつ I just wish that I had these experiences when I was younger.

Q.テつ Big crowds both yesterday and today.テつ That had to have been fun to play in?
SONNY SKINNER:テつ It's distracting for an older brain.テつ It is distracting.テつ I catch myself daydreaming just standing there looking over a sea of people and listening to the roars go up, I'm saying, Was that Mickelson?テつ Was that Scott?テつ Who was that?
All of a sudden, I haven't even gotten my yardage.テつ I thoroughly enjoyed it.テつ I think I would be a good reporter, just keeping up with everything.テつ I have no regrets.テつ I brought a good friend up here to caddie for me.テつ I stayed with some friends.テつ I even had some members from my club come up and watch me play.テつ All of that is extremely rewarding.

Q.テつ You finished on 9, right?
SONNY SKINNER:テつ I did.テつ I finished with a birdie.テつ I hit a beautiful drive down there and 24‑degree utility to about eight feet right over the bunker.テつ I went for it, too.テつ Normally in that situation I might bail out.テつ Anyway, I stiffed it and ‑‑ I didn't really stiff it.テつ Eight feet, but made the putt.テつ Felt like a made the cut.

Q.テつ Good way to end?
SONNY SKINNER:テつ It was a wonderful way to end.テつ I tried hard on every shot.テつ I tried to give myself, put myself in the right mental frame of mind as best I could.テつ My game just wasn't there, just wasn't there.
