Q: Nice playing out there. Just get some comments on your
round and your week as a whole.
TIGER WOODS: Well, I played well today. I hit a lot of good
shots and never really sniffed making a bogey all day. So
that was a good day. You know, playing with Kuch today was
a joke. Twenty putts on the today is not too bad, three
chip-ins. It was amazing. I never saw the guy all day, and
we had the same score. Good stuff.
Q: Pretty confident going into next week?
TIGER WOODS: I feel very good about where I'm at.
I'm excited about it.
Q: Do you feel any better about your putting after the
struggles the first two days?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I putted well the last two days, which
was good. I made some putts. And more importantly, I hit
the ball on my start lines, and that's something I did
not do the first couple days. I misread a couple, but
that's just the way it goes. But at least every putt
was starting on the right line, and that's something
that I'm very excited about going into next week.
Q: Overall, too, it seemed like the way you hit the ball
all week was pretty solid. I think today other than a
couple of fringes, you only chipped once off a green. Would
you just talk about how you feel about the long game going
into next week?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, my tee-to-green game today was I thought
pretty dialed in. I hit it-- I was hitting it long, I was
hitting it straight, and my irons I was shaping both ways
in all different trajectories with the wind blowing. That
was about as absolute high a score as I could possibly
