VIJAY SINGH: Well, I'm swinging the club so well right now this day and age that I don't need to go out there and try to find out how to swing the club again. I have to maintain what I'm doing. That's why I am not practicing as much. I don't have too many other things to do. I have a family. After I was injured I was home for four or five weeks. My wife had enough of me, too. She disrupts the 2hole program at home. There is a new chief in the house. But if I have a week off, I take two days off and then what? You have to go out there and prepare yourself for the tournament. I have not lost the desire to practice. I feel that's my work. As much as I work physically I would like to work on my golf side as well. It had not hurt me at all. I would like to go out there and practice. That's how I feel every time I go home.
Q. On a normal day, how many balls do you likely hit?
VIJAY SINGH: I probably go out there and hit two or three bags of balls which is not much. I hit probably like maybe 150 balls, then I go around and chip around and pitch around. There is other things to the golf game. It may take me four or five hours to be out there. I am doing things with my golf clubs.
Q. Is that the scale back, four or five hours, what did it used to be?
VIJAY SINGH: I used to not chip and putt because I was a great chipper. I think I lost some of that feel through the years. I probably hit for an hour and a half and the rest of it is all short game. That's the scale back.
TODD BUDNICK: Thank you.
