Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas posted a 66 in today’s first round of the Frys.com Open in Scottsdale, AZ. Coming into the week at 99th on the PGA Tour Official Money List, Haas has all but secured his Tour card for 2009. In his third full season on the PGA Tour, Bill is looking for more than just job security.
We caught up with Bill after the round and asked him about his goals; goals he set to start the year, goals he has week to week, and even what his goals are for tomorrow’s round. Here is what he had to say:
“I think it’s hard to set just goals for the year. It’s easier for me, better for me, to set goals and work on things week to week. Otherwise, I’ll be hitting my stride in the spring, after 10 starts or so, and I’ll lose my patience. If I don’t have something closer to work on I’ll lose focus.”
“Instead, I look at what I need to do from week to week. Yes, I am on the verge of having my best Money List finish, but if you look at my stats, they haven’t really changed. First and foremost I need to be more patient. Then I can focus on the things we can measure.”
“As for tomorrow? Well, I drove the ball really well today and shot a good score. I guess if I keep that up and get better on the Par 3’s, I’ll be in great shape for the weekend.”
