It’s right here the place we’ll word the place we admire the character. Is it fiery? Sure. Is it passionate? That, too. There’s taste.
And his commentary after the primary spherical — when he shot a 65 and was in a share of the lead — was extra of that.

“So there was just a few good occasions initially of the 12 months I suppose, however then I suppose after Bay Hill, it’s been fairly boring. Nothing to get enthusiastic about to be trustworthy.
