JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL: Yes, it was obviously a good day for us. Wonderful, what can I say, obviously the last match I think made a big difference in the day. If it had gone the other way, it would have been 3 2, the difference would have been very climb.
It was a great day for us. The boys played well. They managed to win most of the matches, so we are obviously pleased. But we have to keep working really hard because we all know that our opponents are no piece of cake, so they are going to be really trying hard tomorrow. And I'm pretty sure that Monty is going to give them a nice talking to. They are going to be fired up tomorrow for sure.
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL: Well, obviously we sat down and I told them that they did a wonderful job. Obviously I'm not going to give them a ball kicking for winning four matches, it's pretty early. Monty and I, we've played this game long enough to know that the game of golf is like that. I mean, you might have for whatever reason, things don't go your way, and they get beat. But that doesn't mean they are not, you know, great players. I think all players here, they prove through their careers that they are very good players.
You know, today is was our day. We'll see tomorrow. We're going to have to work our asses off the next few days to beat these boys. I mean, I don't have any doubts of that. I don't think anybody has shown up here complacent saying, we're going to show up and that's it. I totally disagree with the suggestion of that. I think all of the boys are really trying their hearts out.
You know, I've shot 68 86, two days in a row. I mean, how can you explain that in golf? You know, we're going to try hard tomorrow. Obviously we're going to be fired up. Nobody wants to be losing this. I think we made that very clear. I think this competition is a serious one, we take it very seriously and that's it, simple as that.
I'm very pleased with my team, the performance of my team today and hopefully we will be able to play good golf tomorrow again. But we will see. I mean, as I said, we're going to have to really work hard in the next few days. This is not over by any means.
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL: Well, I talked to the players and, you know, they played pretty solid. The only thing is Monty and McDowell played better. I think Monty and McDowell managed to make a few birdies and my boys saved a hole a few times. At the end of the day, it's what we saw on 18 today with Paul and Thomas. That hole could have gone either way, that match. I mean, golf is like that. When you have a guy that has a 12 footer and the other guy has a 9 footer and one makes it, the other doesn't, you know, and it's one point for one side and for the other.
So, you know, again, we're talking about little things here. So that's why I said earlier in the week I think that the matches are going to be close and I still believe that.
