Q. Does it frustrate you that you maybe the leader after today but headlines tomorrow are going to be all about Annika?
PATRICK SHEEHAN: Less off me the better. Less off me the better. She's here and you guys are all here because of her, I think that it's great. If I'm leading and I'm -- it takes a lot off of me or anybody that if anybody was shooting 6 under. The spot light's on her and it deservedly so.
Q. Let's go through birdies today. You started on the front side so first one came at number 5?
PATRICK SHEEHAN: Yeah, that was -- I lit in the left rough off the tee. Had 200 yards to the hole and just kind of hooked a 5-iron just on the front of the green and made about a 70 footer. It was kind of stupid. Just get it close and be fine.
Number 8 I hit it about 15 feet left of the hole. Hit a good putt there.
10 I hit it about -- made a nice one about 25 footer there. From left of the hole.
13 I made a 30 footer. I made some putts today.
14 I hit it close. That was the only shot I hit real close. I hit it about a foot there, a foot and a half. But I made some long putts today.
Q. You said that the spotlight is on her and deservedly so. I'm wondering why you think that?
PATRICK SHEEHAN: You guys. This is the first time in how many years, 58? You could tell right away. I teed off 10 minutes behind her today and everybody out here is watching her. Everybody else is kind of under the radar. She's got all the attention around her. It's not that -- she's playing, this is a huge thing. Look at what she's doing. I can't even imagine what she's got to go through just to be here. The attention she gets, I think she deserves it. If Tiger Woods when Tiger Woods goes overseas and plays other tours you think those guys that play regularly on that tour, do you think everybody is following them? No, they're following him. It's kind of, it's apples and oranges but it's the same kind of thing where if he's playing a different tour, everybody goes to watch him.
Q. Does it make you wonder why people don't go out and watch her when she plays week in and week out on the LPGA she has admitted that there aren't that many people out there?
PATRICK SHEEHAN: No, there aren't. I honestly couldn't answer that. I played the Nationwide Tour last year and some cities have a ton of people, some cities have hardly any people to watch. It's the areas, -- I can't answer that. The LPGA, I mean they got wonderful players out there. It's just, I don't know. I don't know.
TODD BUDNICK: All right. Well thank you very much, Patrick.
