“Not win­ning the 2004 Mas­ters hurt me more

than my play­off loss to Todd Hamil­ton at the Open

that year. That’s mainly be­cause I still don’t have a

green jacket, and that loss to (Phil) Mick­el­son was

as good as I could play on that fi­nal 18 at Au­gusta.

To sit on the putting green and not see what

was go­ing on and hear the crowd when

Phil made that putt at 18 . . . that was very tough.

The Open was tough, too, but at least I had won it.

The Mas­ters is a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, start­ing

with when you get a let­ter from the

tour­na­ment com­mit­tee, and then be­ing

able to play when­ever you want once

you have that let­ter.”
