You'd expect Phil Mickelson to be a bit chipper at this US Open.
The six-time major champion arrived at Los Angeles Country Club off the back of apparently achieving what he has been secretly trying to attain for the better part of two years.
Whether you agree with Mickelson or to what degree you think he has been successful is subjective.
Lefty has been curiously silent on-site in California this week. He wasn't allotted a news conference by the USGA.
But a pool of reporters did track him down once he arrived and asked him for his immediate thoughts about the shocking, stunning, mind-boggling, unbelievable peace agreement that was struck between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf's Saudi backers, the PIF.
The 53-year-old only said a few words to SI's Bob Harig: "I'll be happy to talk later."
But he also offered:
Apparently Mickelson also said he hoped some information 'comes out in discovery', although it's not clear what he was referring to.
That 'landmark' agreement reportedly included both LIV and the PGA Tour ending their expensive litigation.
The US Department of Justice is still - to our knowledge - investigating the PGA Tour over alleged antitrust violations.
US lawmakers have also urged the DoJ to look into the agreement between the PGA Tour and PIF.

The agreement will combine the assets of the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and LIV Golf, with PIF as the minority investor.
Yasir al-Rumayyan, the Saudi businessman with close ties to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, would act as the chairman of this new, for-profit company with PGA Tour boss Jay Monahan acting as chief executive.
Monahan has blasted the US government, saying Congress left the PGA Tour 'on our own' against the Saudis.
Part of his letter stated:
Monahan has now stepped away from his day-to-day duties owing to a 'medical issue'.
Mickelson played his practice round before the US Open with LIV Golf's David Puig, Jon Rahm and youngster Alejandro Del Rey.
Lefty is playing his first two rounds of the US Open alongside Padraig Harrington and Keegan Bradley.
