JOEY SINDELAR: Short game, it's absolutely short game. I don't know why it took me that long to understand that. I'm guilty like the armatures that I play with in my group. They want to hit the ball like Vijay, and rightly so, but that's not what brings the score down. Dave Peltz said it perfectly on TV a couple of weeks ago, when I came home from Houston complaining about my short game, my family said, Dave Peltz is on The Golf Channel and maybe we ought to be watching this. He was on there and he said, you know, you make a bad drive, it might be out-of-bounds or in the water, but chances are you're going to be able to find it and probably be able to play from there and something good might still come out of it. If you make a bad putt, add a shot, you missed and you have to make the next one.
I know that sounds dumb simple, but it is that simple. Putting is not everything, but it solves a whale of a lot of problems, it really does. And then of course it goes into chipping around the greens. The guys who win are playing -- if they miss five greens in the last round, they're playing those even par, even 1-under, maybe 2-under, chipping a couple of in, and that's not just the two strokes you save, but the momentum that goes with it and the deflation for me that goes with it when I didn't do it.
My kids are going to hate me, but from 75 yards and in, they're going to be whipped for the next seven or eight years when they're home with me, because you have to have it.
JOEY SINDELAR: I'm a slob, so dusting anything off doesn't fall in the category. We kind of have an office and they're on the shelves in there. This one might have to stay somewhere prominent at least for a little well.
JOAN v.T. ALEXANDER: On that note, again, congratulations.
THE WITNESS: I can't tell you how thrilled I am. Thank you Wachovia and Charlotte
