East Lake was a big step for me, confirming that I could still win out here and against the best players. Because East Lake, obviously it's the hottest 30 guys for the year.

I remember that putt breaking and it just didn't break. No, but I was saying, it's not over yet, I've still got to make this putt. Come on, just keep it together. Keep focused. And God knows what I did after that. You have such a huge impact on so many people.
Do you have any messaging after this comeback and persevering? But more importantly, I've been able to participate in my kids' lives in a way that I couldn't for a number of years. And so they are a lot more active than I am, and I'm a little competitive myself, so I try and keep up. I tried to do that for a number of years and I just couldn't do it, but now I'm starting to do it and starting to be able to play with them and do things in their sports.

I always felt like I could do pretty much anything physically, but for a while there, I just couldn't even walk. Now I'm able to play golf again, and do it at an elite level again, which is something that I'm just very blessed to be able to have that opportunity again.

What encouragement would you give them to not give up and to say that you can possibly overcome these issues? That's a given. You always fight. Just giving up's never in the equation. Granted, pushing and being competitive has got me into this position, but it's also what got me out of it.

I'm curious, what did Sam and Charlie say to you after it was over, and what have they maybe said to you over the past couple years that perhaps motivates you?
I think everyone else was, too. I hope they are proud of their dad. I said, this is a pretty unique event. This is very special. Really hope you guys are able to come. I know you've touched on it a little bit, but it seems like your smile got bigger as the week kind of went on.

My short game's been there. I know that I made a few mistakes the last couple tournaments, but it just felt like it was there. My hands were good. I was very disciplined in what I was doing out there. Even when yesterday guys were shooting 64 left and right, I was just kind of going around, just handle your business, work your way up the board.
