Q. I know it was a tough finish, but can you take me just through the playoff hole and what happened on 18?
I.K. KIM: Well, on 18 I was nervous the whole way, obviously on the Back 9, but I think I executed good shots, and I hit many good putts. And on 18, you know, I wanted to make the putt with the right speed, and I think I've done very well. But coming up to it I tried to take time, and you know, same routine.
But I played straight, and actually just broke to the right, even that short putt. 
So it was unfortunate on 18, but I've done a lot of ‑‑ I feel good about my game. 



But other than that, it was a great experience, and sometimes, you know, you have to close to win the tournament.


It's getting better. It's progressing, and on the playoff hole, you know, it's just hard to kind of focus what's going on right now because I was still a little bit bummed what happened on 18, honestly.
I don't know, you know, sometimes things happen, and it's kind of, you know, tough because it's Nabisco, and hopefully I'll have better or more chances.
