SI: You sank a 35-yard bunker shot for the victory. Lucky shot?
LG: You always hope for good stuff to happen in situations like that. Instead of good, I got great.
SI: If it's a different sport, what's the analogy?
LG: If we're playing basketball, that's sinking one from half-court with two seconds left.
SI: Tell me about your relationship with Jay Haas.
LG: Growing up near Jay [in Greenville, S.C.], I always looked up to him. He's a pretty good guy to emulate. He never says, "All right, I'm going to give you some advice...." I watch what he does and take that as advice. He's been a great friend and a great role model. If you were going to pick somebody to be like, he'd be the guy.
SI: Didn't he lead you to your longtime swing coach?
LG: When I was 12, my grandfather went to Jay and said, "I can't teach him any more than I have already. What do I do now?" Jay brought us to Dick Harmon.
SI: Your former Clemson teammates, Jonathan Byrd, D.J. Trahan and Charles Warren, play on Tour. Byrd's won twice, but are there any bragging rights for being the second to win?
LG: Bragging? I'm not like that. I'll be walking around all sheepish next week, like I always do. [Pulls out his phone.] All of them have called already.
