SI: You seemed to smile throughout the day. You were grinning even when you had the double bogey on 3 and the bogey on 2. Was that part of a plan?

PH: I'm a strange person--my emotions really dictate how I play. In the past I've been very hard on myself on the course. This week I decided to lighten up a bit and try to enjoy it more.

SI: All things considered, how do you like your chances at the British Open?

PH: As the putt on 18 proves, anything can happen.

SI: WERE YOU TRYING TO MAKE THAT PUTT?

PH: NO, NO. TRYING TO TWO-PUTT, TRYING TO GET IT DOWN THERE CLOSE. I'M A TOTAL REALIST IN THESE SITUATIONS.
