Q. You and Lee obviously were having a really good time; does it that help to cut the tension?
SERGIO GARCIA: I've always said, I think there's enough pressure in this event to take it seriously -- don't get my wrong, you have to be as serious as you can, you've got to try as hard as you can, but just try to enjoy it a little bit, have a little bit of fun with it, have a little bit of fun with the crowd, and that makes you relax. It gets your mind out of all that pressure. It just makes it easier to play your own game. I feel that's the way I perform the best and I really think that it helped Lee and Jesper three years ago.
Q. You're a long time out there, and you can just sort of shut off from that and focus on your next shot?
SERGIO GARCIA: Yes. You've got to realize that it's hard enough to concentrate for four hours, when we're playing a normal tournament. Imagine trying to concentrate for seven and a half or eight; it's even tougher. So I think that the more you try to enjoy it and -- even if you're losing. Today we were 1-down, and we're having fun. We were just enjoying every bit of it. That's the way at least I feel I've got to play this tournament to do well.
Q. How do you feel about having a 3-1 lead this morning and having the U.S. cut back a little.
SERGIO GARCIA: Every time you're in the lead in the Ryder Cup it's important. Of course it feels like we could have got a more this afternoon and it would have been sweeter. You've got to realize that those things can happen.
Q. How do you feel with Lee, how well did you gel?
SERGIO GARCIA: Our personalities are very laid back, and we like to have fun, and I think that really helped me getting into Lee's head and relaxing a little bit, so I think that was really good for us.
Q. Are you going to go for the 10th green every time you hit?
SERGIO GARCIA: If the wind is right, I do, because I actually feel like -- I don't know, I feel like I hit that green every day. If the wind feels the right way, I'll probably go every day.
Q. How do you assess Lee's performance today, bearing in mind he struggled for about a year now?
SERGIO GARCIA: I think it was great. Of course, unfortunately, he hasn't been playing too well this year, and you could see a couple wayward shots. But I hit some wayward shots myself, too, and I've been playing pretty well. So it's just all the Ryder Cup pressure. But he looked good. He putted really well and when you get a guy in foursomes that if you get him more or less pretty close to the hole, he's pretty much going to make every putt, it takes a lot of pressure off you. And I'm really happy with the way it went.
