Quick Quotes

Q. How would you assess your week?

TONY FINAU: I didn't have my best stuff but scraped out a couple rounds that I didn't play very good, but you know, looking back on the season, the highlight of the year was the win a couple weeks ago. It was nice for that to happen. I felt like so much work has gone into that and to have that happen just a couple weeks ago was huge for me.

I knew I was playing well going into this week. Not the golf I wanted to play, but another successful year and another great year.

Q. What will your schedule be like in terms of downtime?

TONY FINAU: Well, you know, tomorrow I think the captain will officially make the team. I hope I'm a part of the team. And if that's the case, I for sure will take a couple days off. This three-week playoff run with a win and even playing well last week took quite a bit out of me. I'm going to take some time off, be with my family and again hopefully get ready for The Ryder Cup and get ready to bring that Cup back to the States.

Q. Has Stricker been around this week? Did he leave after Wednesday?

TONY FINAU: I heard he was with the top six, I was just outside, unfortunately, I was seven when the team got picked -- or when you qualify for points. I heard they had a dinner. I wasn't part of that again. He was around. I hope I get that call within the next couple days, and I'll be ready to play when we play Whistling Straits.

Q. What do you think you bring to the team, personality-wise or game-wise?

TONY FINAU: I think I'll just echo a lot of the things I said in 2018. I grew up playing two sports, basketball mostly, and I know what it's like to be in a locker room and a team atmosphere. You have to be selfless. It's more of a team attitude. I know also what it takes to play and be in those situations.

So I've just got to bring my best stuff and be ready to play whenever my name is called. Again, it will be an exciting thing if I were to get picked, and I would very much love to be a part of that team.
