PHIL MICKELSON: Well, no question, having now won a major and not have to answer questions about, oh, yeah, 2nd again, as opposed to 2nd this week being a negative, I look at it as a positive because I played such difficult conditions well and came so close and was able to shoot a good round on a very difficult Sunday.
Now, what's interesting to me is I look at the strides that I've made in my game, and the hardest rounds, some of the hardest scoring rounds we had in the U.S. Open happened to be the three events that I finished 2nd, in '99, '04 and '02, and I think that I take a lot away from that. That tells me I can play under some very adverse and difficult conditions, and I'll enter these tournaments now with a lot of confidence.
RAND JERRIS: Phil, thank you very much.
