SI: There's plenty of water at Colonial. Did you ever think about jumping in?
KP: They were spraying the greens with that water, and it smelled really nasty. There was no way I was going near that stuff.
SI: You had a seven-shot lead. Did you think about Sergio Garc�a's six-shot collapse three weeks ago?
KP: I didn't dwell on [players who've lost big leads], but I thought about some of those other guys. You worry people will call you a choker if you lose a big lead, but this was my week.
SI: Why do you play well at Colonial?
KP: When I stand on the tee here I feel comfortable and relaxed. It's hard to play against a guy who knows a course as well as I know this one. It will always be Hogan's Alley, but I hope they can put a little corner on the Wall of Champions that says Perry's Place.
SI: You've collected two plaid jackets now. How many more wins before you get matching pants?
KP: Maybe that's what I can come back for next year. - Art Stricklin
