Q. Can you go through the bogey on 17?
TOM WATSON: I hit a 3 putt on 17. I drive through the fairway again like I did yesterday and 8-iron out, and I just put it through the fairway in the short grass. I hit a pretty good lie. I didn't want to be flying the ball back to the pin. I wasn't quite sure what it was going food. I left it about 40 feet short and knocked a terrible first and second putt and missed it by about 6 feet. That's how you make bogey.
Q. You putt very well and so did Craig and Mike?
TOM WATSON: You have to to win. I did putt well and again I feel good about my putting. I hope that it there was a slight change in my putting stroke and I hope it continues.
TOM WATSON: Yeah, 27 seconds.
Q. Craig said obviously you and him have played in the same group many times in a lot of tournaments. He's good friends with you and Bruce. He said they'll try to beat your brains out. Do you feel the same way?
TOM WATSON: I feel exactly the same way. We're out there competing. That's what I'm out here for is to compete. I enjoy the competition. It gets my juices flowing, and that's what I live for. I enjoy the competition.
Q. I watched Bruce today I guess more carefully than I did before. He just seems to be doing everything that he's always done as a caddy. He picked up divots for other guys. Are you surprised at all?
TOM WATSON: No, I'm not, so. Bruce is the consummate perfectionist when he does things. He doesn't leave any loose ends. He continues to do the same. He's out with his family. This is his family. He loves it. Today playing Andy and Bob Murphy, we go back a long, long, long way on the tour, so Bob got off to a terrible start and Andy did the same, so it wasn't happy for them, but it was good playing golf with them again, and Bruce enjoyed that. Again, he does his job better than anybody out there. I think other caddies understand that too. Do it like Bruce.
MODERATOR: Okay. Tom, thank you. We'll let you go.
