SI: So not too many big nights on Beale Street this week?

JL: No, Amanda [my wife] and I didn't do any of that. We keep to our routine: Go get dinner, get everybody bathed and to bed and then enjoy some quiet time.

SI: Do you change diapers?

JL: I have. I don't mind. The kids don't know if you shot 65 or 85, and they don't care.

SI: On the week you hit a lot of greens and two-putted for pars. Could that approach help you at Pinehurst in the U.S. Open?

JL: I'm going to have to do that at Pinehurst to be successful. I think everybody will. That's what you have to do on some of these toughened holes as well.

SI: Was your mind-set going into the final round, Just make pars?

JL: I wasn't trying to just make pars. I went for some birdie putts, on 11 and 12, but they didn't go in.
