PADRAIG HARRINGTON: The pins were tougher. Pin positions were tougher. The weather was tougher going out. It got windy out there. I think we just didn't get any breaks to make anything happen. We played reasonable golf. If there was any criticism, we were not enough in the holes together. There was a lot of one guy playing the hole and the other guy looking at it sort of thing there. The other day, we had a lot of chances, the two of us played most holes, it gives great back up when there's another guy in there. That's where we slipped up today, if anything, we didn't get any breaks. We don't hole any bunker shots.
PAUL McGINLEY: Sorry about that.
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Nothing strange happened out there. I think the 5-under for the last eight holes has got to leave us --
PAUL McGINLEY: Seven.
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Seven holes, reasonably pleased. You know, birdieing the last is the only hole out of the norm that was birdied today, which was a good way to finish and leaves us certainly thinking about tomorrow.
Q. You couldn't go away for five minutes to discuss that and tell you what you're doing tomorrow?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: We'll see who --
PAUL McGINLEY: It's a better story when there's a row.
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: We'll see whose got the stronger rowing ability.
Q. Titleist have announced overnight that they are not extending Paul Casey's contract. He's learned a harsh lesson, has he?
PAUL McGINLEY: Yeah, I don't know Paul's relationship with Titleist. I've seen his article and, you know, okay, we were surprised like everybody. But Paul's his own man and it's his life. It's his decisions, his saying what to do. I think a lot of guys in golf sit on the fence, and Paul certainly is not sitting on the fence.
Q. Now he bitterly regrets it.
PAUL McGINLEY: Of course he does. It's not a nice thing to say and I'm sure Paul knows that himself. It's nothing to do with us, I mean, none of us are sponsored by Titleist so we don't know the relationship he had with them.
Q. You were about to say, though, that a lot of guys sit on the fence. He's a fellow, too, that he's fairly forthright; is it a pity that you can't be forthright in this sport?
PAUL McGINLEY: Well, there's forthright and there's forthright. To me Monty is great for our game. Everybody has got an opinion on Monty, and I think that's great. Paul says what Paul says. We can't control what anybody else says.
GORDON SIMPSON: Did you have any harsh lessons to learn along these lines in the early days?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: I think in Ireland we're brought up from a very early age, from 15 years of age we're being interviewed when you're playing the Irish Boys Team. It's a smaller community, and I think, you know, I suppose you learn and you understand a lot more the power of what you say.
GORDON SIMPSON: Thanks very much for coming in, guys.
