Stewart Cink

Q. (No Microphone.)

STEWART CINK: I put it in neutral yesterday a little bit for a few holes. Got flat and then today I kind of was flat all day until the very end, but --

Q. What's that like trying to get something going?

STEWART CINK: Well, I felt like -- I wasn't really -- I wasn't -- my iron shots -- I drove it awesome for the most part and my iron shots just weren't like -- I wasn't really hitting my lines. And I was also, my distance control was a little off today, which is a hallmark of mine. So that was a little bit of like, whoa. It felt like every time I was in good position to attack I would hit it 20 feet and I would put it in the 20-foot place where it's the worse 20-footer you could have on that hole. Putting up and over a little knob or out of the fringe by three feet or just -- I never gave myself any green lights. So you do that hole after hole and you just kind of just 2-putt and 2-putt and 2-putt. So, and I didn't take any advantage of the holes that where I where my power could really do something like that. Like 14 and 15. So, anyway, I had a great time. I love playing with those guys. This has been fun this week. I definitely got my feet wet and I'm looking forward to playing more of these.

Q. Nice finish right out of the blocks getting yourself in there.

STEWART CINK: No, I mean, I shot, what? 16-under par. And this is no pushover golf course. You got to play good golf to shoot 16-under par somewhere. I'm taking a lot of confidence down the road from here. I would be lying if I told you I wasn't looking forward to my next PGA TOUR Champions. I don't know when it's going to be, but I'm looking forward to it.

Q. The 18th whole set up with Padraig and Strick, it's a classic power and precision.

STEWART CINK: It is. I mean, gosh, I tell you what the most important moment for me in this playoff is who draws the first shot. Because if Padraig hits driver and hits it down the fairway it's going to force Steve's hand. He's probably going to have to hit driver. He's hitting his driver fine. It's the one, well it's probably the most dangerous drive on the golf course.

Q. A little awkward the way it fits.

STEWART CINK: A little awkward and, you know, Harrington has a big advantage on the carry, but it's, it will be interesting to see who hits first because that will determine the next guy's play.
