PAUL McGINLEY: The first day, I'll say it again, Paul Casey is a real streaky putter. There's nobody hotter with a putter when he gets confident in the world of golf than Paul Casey, and he's obviously had a streak this week. He's done all the putting again today. It's not coincidence, the way the course is set up, the guy who does a lot of the putting -- and Paul has obviously holed a lot of putts today to shoot the score to do it.
Q. What's next for you?
PAUL McGINLEY: I really don't know. I'll have to make a decision late on, but at the moment -- at the moment I think my good instinct is to get my operation done and over with and prepare for next season. Only problem is if I don't finish in the Top 50 for the Match-Play, it would be nice to be in the 64 so I could plan my start of the season. But I think I need it take care of my ailing body after a along year.
Q. How deep is the disappointment, Padraig?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: It's nice after we've gone a few years now where we haven't really contented, so we contended all week. You know, okay, we didn't get breaks here in the week but it certainly could have been our week.
Certainly England has done great to shoot the score they have. As I said it looks like it's their time. Sometimes that's the nature of golf. Sometimes you do need things to happen the at right time.
Q. If somebody had said 65 for you today, would you thought that might have been good enough?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Oh, yeah, yeah, definitely. No question about it. It would have been very easy for the leading teams to go out there and shoot 70. Even 69 would be a decent return. You know, so yeah, we would have been very pleased, and to be honest we were pushing at the end. I think we could have even been one better if we were leading in that sort of situation; we had to go for it at the end.
We knew we were in it. We had a 15-footer on 15, I was telling it to break and it missed on the low side. I really thought I would hole that. And obviously 16 was disappointing not to make birdie there. And the approach on 17, trying to go to the back right pin in a left-to-right win can be a tough shot at times.
Q. Do you agree with Paul that the 16th was your nemesis this week; that hole you could have done better?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: We played it level par, where you would hope to play it 5-under. But we had other good holes. If anything, you would say 15, 16, but it's obviously England's week. They holed the putts. They are the perfect foursomes combination on this golf course. Never has a foursome combination ever been -- this golf course is so one-sided, and they absolutely picked the perfect combination.
Q. Better in foursomes than they are in four-ball.
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: They are better in foursomes and singles anyway. They are just the perfect combination anyway. Paul is a very streaky putter, he's a long hitter; and Luke is probably one of the best iron players in the game, so just perfect. So the golf course really sets up, and they did well in that.
Q. Were you looking at the leaderboards?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Yeah, I was looking at the leaderboards on 12, got us going again on 13 and 14. We were pushing it the last couple of holes. It's hard to do that. I think we got every bit you could get out of the round for the first 14 holes, and probably the last four holes we didn't.
