Q. Would you tell us about your buddy here in town who owns a Thai restaurant and how many times you've eaten there this week?
VIJAY SINGH: Well, Charlie and Nan, they own a restaurant that is on Peachtree and 14th. They cooked for me at the Masters when I won. It's the best food in town. If you guys are looking for a good meal, that's the place to go. I ain't kidding you. There were more Tour guys there this week than I've ever seen in a restaurant. I've eaten there every night. He's waiting for me in his restaurant right now. So you can't go without eating.
We eat every time we come to Atlanta. He really is a nice chap and the best food you can ever get.
Q. How many times did you eat there this week?
VIJAY SINGH: Every night. And tonight, as well.
Q. This gets you up to about third on the Money List and maybe higher on the world rankings, how much stock do you put in that and do you think it accurately reflects where you are as a player?
VIJAY SINGH: The Money List is pretty hard to win, if Tiger wins five times every year and the big ones, too. It really depends on which tournament you win.
Beginning of the year, my goal is to win, you know -- it's no one tournament that I want to win out there. It's just whichever tournament I enter, I want to win.
I emphasize more on the majors and the PLAYERS Championship, but any win is a good win. The Money List, you kind of think about it when it comes towards the end. I think this is the best I've ever finished on the Money List -- oh, finished second one, yes.
It's a good achievement. Especially as old as I am -- I am old. (Laughing) Well, I'm getting old anyway. It is a great achievement.
I'm looking forward to next year now and I want to play well and I want to compete. I told my wife, I said, "If I stop competing, I just don't want to be part of a pack. I just want to go out there and compete." That's how I am. If I don't enjoy it, I can't win anymore, I don't think I will play the Tour. Wait for the Senior Tour.
Q. Did you say you've got something that you practice, a track or something in your hotel, right?
VIJAY SINGH: I've got a putting thing that I work with. If you haven't seen me on the putting green, that's all I have is I put on that track to improve my stroke. You can just dismantle it, take it wherever you go. I just use it in the room when I need to.
You know, we're all golfers, we all practice in the room. Don't get that wrong. It's not only me. (Laughing).
Q. You are aware it's coming back here frequently, this site.
VIJAY SINGH: Next year -- Mike Weir is not here and he won it last year. I think it should be the top 31 guys; defending champion always play it. That's the way they should have it. But, hey, it's Top-30 and that's it. There's no guarantee I'm going to be in the Top-30 next year. Probably not going to see me here if I don't play well.
JOAN vT ALEXANDER: Thank you, Vijay.
