Question of the Day
Otherwise, it’s as if nothing changed.
“I still took the trash out on Tuesday morning and we actually got a new puppy, so I was up at 3 in the morning every night taking him out to the bathroom and still going to my favorite breakfast spot in town,” he said. “So not too much has changed in my life. My wife hasn’t treated me any differently and people around me are still treating me the same. So it’s pretty easy when you’ve got good people around you.”
HAAS PERSPECTIVE: Bill Haas starts the FedEx Cup playoffs with the No. 5 seed, which has more to do with his tour-leading nine top 10s than his win at the AT&T National. With five career wins, he was told he was only four wins away from being among the top 10 in PGA Tour wins among active players.
Haas said he was a little surprised by that, but he took issue the word “only four wins away.”
Getting to five wins was no picnic.
“It’s so hard to win out here,” he said.
“Those guys are on another level because of how many times they have won,” he said. “It’s pretty amazing, the level of competition nowadays. But … you’ve got to think of about those to be positive. When things aren’t going well, you have to say, `Hey, wait a second, you can win out here.’ Stats like that are fun to look at and only positive motivation for the future.”
SECOND PLACE: This is one time Tiger Woods doesn’t think second place is all that bad.
Woods has 14 majors, putting him in second-place behind Jack Nicklaus (18). He has 79 wins on the PGA Tour, second only to Sam Snead at 82.
“That’s not bad at my age,” the 37-year-old Woods said Wednesday. “Both of those guys took a lot longer to get to that point, and to do it where I’m at right now, it’s pretty good.”
Nicklaus won his 15th major when he was 38. Snead won his 80th tour event when he was 47.
