Q. Given the layoff and what you've been through with the day -- I know you wanted to win, but how do you feel?
PHIL MICKELSON: Well, heading into the week I was very calm and I felt very ready to play well. And I am feeling very comfortable into the Major Championships now. I just know that if I just go out and play I'm going to have a shot on Sunday and it's fun to have a chance at winning. And I played very well this Sunday. I think it was the best round that I played on Sunday. Probably the lowest round I've ever shot. And so I can't complain.
PHIL MICKELSON: That's better than finishing fourth, I guess, but there's really no consolation out there.
PHIL MICKELSON: I think on Sunday it's the lowest Sunday at Augusta.
PHIL MICKELSON: Maybe, yeah. And it wasn't playing easy. We saw a lot of high scores today. We had some tough pins, quick greens. So it wasn't playing easy, it just makes Len's round that much more impressive, and Mike Weir's play as well.
Q. Are you rooting for a fellow lefty?
PHIL MICKELSON: I'm just rooting for a good finish. I have good friendships with Len and Mike. And a win would be great for both of them. I'm trying to be bipartisan, I guess it is. Nonpartisan, I guess.
Q. Looking ahead, where do you go from here?
PHIL MICKELSON: I'm going to take the next two weeks off and spend some time with my family. We're still adjusting. Our baby's three weeks old today. So we're still adjusting. And I'll spend the next couple of weeks and then hopefully they will come out at the Nelson. I'll play the two weeks prior. I'll play New Orleans and the new tournament, Wachovia, so I'll be working on my game the next couple of weeks.
