ROCHESTER, NEW YORK
VIJAY SINGH: I played okay. I drove the ball nicely, at times. I just played a regular round of golf. Could have been a few less, could have been one or two more.
Q. Could have been a little better, little worse?
VIJAY SINGH: Could have been two shots better. I 3-putted twice. Got unlucky a few times. On 13, I thought it was pretty unlucky.
It was okay. It was a good round. I feel I can do better, though.
Q. The key is getting it in the fairway?
VIJAY SINGH: You know, you get it in the fairway, but you've got to take some risks. I think it's bad to hit a lot of drivers out there, to hit it way out there, where if you don't hit the fairway, you can't get it on the green.
Q. A different strategy than other guys who are so worried about hitting the fairway that they are backing off driver?
VIJAY SINGH: Well, I know. If you miss it with an iron or 3-wood, then you're really screwed. I hit a lot of drivers today and I will probably do the same tomorrow.
Q. Does the golf course set up well for you?
VIJAY SINGH: I think it's perfect. I think the greens are a little slow. A lot of balls are short.
Q. 4-under is leading; is that about right, do you think?
VIJAY SINGH: Yeah, I think so. I think the greens will be a lot better in the morning. But, you know, it might be my chance tomorrow morning.
I think 4-under is a good score I wouldn't have thought anyone else would have gone lower. I was surprised to see Mickelson -- that's a good score. That's good shooting.
