Colorado Springs, Colorado

Q. You're the hero to a lot of us on the TOUR, individuals. How do you maintain your excellence this long, top-20 finishes every year in this thing?
JAY HAAS: Well, you know, in general, I've been blessed with good health and that's helped me a little bit. And my passion for the game is still there. I still enjoy competing. And fortunately I have my game this week, I really played well from tee to green. I didn't feel like I putted well. Didn't putt awful but just didn't make a lot of putts. And I'm disappointed with 4-over the last day, but it was a really hard day to play, a lot of wind and the pins were difficult. But I think mostly just the want-to. Still have the passion to play. I think that's the key.

Q. And throw in 7,000 feet almost.
JAY HAAS: Right.

Q. Uphills?
JAY HAAS: I felt good all week. Never felt tired or out of breath or anything like that. I just kind of felt, you know, I was one foot in front of the other. And again I really drove the ball well, hit a lot of solid shots off the tee. And my irons were good. I felt confident hitting into the greens, and I was able to keep it in most of the fairways and had a hiccup on 15 today. It was disappointing to make 6 there. But overall I was pretty pleased and felt I could have even been a lot better.
