Tour Championship 2022 R1

"When I'm on the golf course I'm just trying to go out there and do my best. I'm not looking at leaderboards, I'm not looking at any of that other stuff. I am treating it like a four-day event, and just like any other one I'm going to go out there and try and put myself in position to win the tournament.

"For me that means this week ignoring leaderboards because I started with the lead. If I started at 2-, 3-under, it would be a bit of a different story. It would kind of be the chasing mentality. But out here I'm just kind of going out and trying to do my best and keep my head down."
