David Toms


Q. You described yesterday's match with Rocco as a dogfight?

DAVID TOMS: We were both under par. We played nice and solid. I guess if you concede my par at 17, that's 3-under par for the rounds and that's a good, solid round.

Q. Dogfight?

DAVID TOMS: I think so. He holed a bunch of shots, I holed a long putt. Just those things that make it fun to watch.

Q. How far was that putt?

DAVID TOMS: I don't know, 40 or 50 feet.

Q. How did you feel after that?

DAVID TOMS: Well, he was in the rough off the tee and tried to be aggressive, and his ball hits right in the face of the bunker; instead of plugging, it rolled back down in the bunker. I was conservative with my second shot and hit a sand wedge in. But I was trying to get it past the hole, so I didn't do the same thing and he end up holing the bunker shot.

Q. Yesterday you said you haven't really put it all together this week; are you proud of yourself for how you've battled?

DAVID TOMS: Absolutely. I've battled better this week than I have previously in this event. I have not got down on myself. I just hung in there and fought it out the whole way.

Q. Did you learn a lot from last year?

DAVID TOMS: I've learned a lot of the. Golf is crazy. You don't know what's going to happen. You have to hang in there. I have the ability to make birdie at any time, which is a good thing as long as you hang in there.

Q. You said you two played nine holes earlier this week?

DAVID TOMS: Yeah, and he played great and was talking about how to try to make putts on this week and he went to the claw -- it's obviously working. He's been playing good the last few years.

Q. Another poa annua guy, too.

DAVID TOMS: Yeah, he's grown up on this stuff out here. He's a California guy, he's a good player. I don't think he gets enough credit because he's been very consistent last few years. I notice that he's had some upsets this week, beating higher seeds, but he's a great player.

Q. Surprised Tom Lehman is still around?

DAVID TOMS: No, shows how tough a guy he is. He has a great Ryder Cup record; so he's obviously a good match-play player. He's been a great player out here for a long time.
