The birdie on the first got me off to a pleasant begin. I hit a decent tee shot and a pleasant six iron and after that a decent chip. I holed a pleasant putt and that settled me down. Had a number in my mind all week. 18 under won a year ago and I needed to get to that. I got to 17, which is truly close, and 18 under would’ve seen them off yet 17 under was adequate to take care of business.”
