Q. You have talked a lot about your caddie and what winning has meant to you guys. Talk about the run that you guys have been on; talk about that a little bit today.
TOM WATSON: Well, I said when he was diagnosed with ALS that I wanted to win for him, and came close at the U.S. Senior Open, playing well enough right now to win and maybe this is going to be the win. I haven't had a history of winning very many times on the Champions Tour, and I really do want to win for Bruce. Have another hug on the 18th green like we have had many times before.
Q. The cold weather sometimes affects him a little bit more. Was he having any problems today?
TOM WATSON: No, he wasn't having any problems today although I told him "you are riding the cart, you got shorts on, don't you think maybe you just should take your rain suit with you and put it in the car; not carry it in the bag, just put it in the car just in case." He was laughing. He toughs it out.
Q. Obviously you do well under harsher conditions but do you see that as a chance maybe separating yourself from the rest of the field; do you like it?
TOM WATSON: Yeah, when the conditions get tough that's when you do separate yourself. You can make -- you can make a statement and you can go from -- like I did went from 22nd place to 1st place. I don't know after today if it's going to be 1st place, if it's going to be right there today but when you shoot a round like this in the wind you are going to pass a whole bunch of people.
PHIL STANBAUGH: Anything else? Tom, thank you very much.
TOM WATSON: Thank you, Phil.
PHIL STANBAUGH: Thank you.
