In the past, the US Open, I have to match that and I thought, ‘No way, that’s the level I get no more.” It feels like the ball is so much harder to beat than in my day. But I had that feeling once when I was still in the top-five standing there. However, when I compared them in the field was, I found out that the game isn’t too hard, as if they were on the same floor.
