Playing Under Pressure

"When you're right on the cut number and you're hitting the ball all over the place and you've got to make par on the last hole to make the cut, now you're choking your guts out. All you're trying to do is hit the ball in the fairway instead of trying to make a good swing. Suddenly you got rubber coming out from between your fingers. I have hit the ugliest dog putt when I was simply trying to two-putt and make the cut. It looked like I threw the ball down there and then threw up on it to make it stop."
--PGA Tour journeyman Brad Bryant describing the pressure some of the less-heralded players face every week on tour
