WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS —
Q. How hard was it to hear some of the things?
TOMMY GAINEY: It wasn't hard at all. I felt like I knew what was going on. I was putting too much pressure on myself. I knew I was doing that, but it's -- sometimes it's easy to change. I mean, it was just hard for me to change that and I'm just trying to have more fun now and it seems to be working out.
Q. Tommy, this tournament, all tournaments have great story lines, but this tournament certainly has with how the champions have been crowned. Have you kind of followed that, is that kind of a motivational tool for a player at this event?
TOMMY GAINEY: Absolutely, absolutely. Look at the last three winners, Stuart Appleby, Scott Stallings, Ted Potter, Jr. You know, Scott Stallings is a friend and Ted Potter, Jr.'s a friend. I used to play a lot of mini TOUR golf with Ted Potter, Jr. Guy's got some game. You're not out here if you don't have game, that's just the way it is. Especially last year, he won in the playoff, it took him I think two holes maybe in the playoff, he had to play 18 the second time, made birdie, good night. I mean, it was -- guy can play. Everybody, I mean, there's different story lines. There's a ton of story lines out here. You look at me, I grew up poor and I'm playing on the PGA TOUR, I'm a PGA TOUR winner. It doesn't get any better than that.
Q. Tommy, was playing in the tournament, did that have anything to do with the proximity to your home? In other words, did you really want to be here because it's not too far from South Carolina versus maybe being on the West Coast? And the other thing is, who did you bring with you this week?
