"I'm head over heels.  It's far above anything else that I have ever done.  I can't event talk about it accurately right now, because it hasn't sunken in yet," Baldwin said after the tournament.

He already has big plans for the prize money:

"One of my friends told me that if I ever cash for more than a quarter-million I have to buy an old junk used car and then throw $10,000 rims on it.  I hope he does not make me do it.  But if he does, I am probably going to go out and buy an old Cutless (Oldsmobile) or something like that, and put some rims on it."
