Q. You and Charles Howell are the only ones that had a bogey-free round and the only ones that birdied 18. I know you knew him when he was in college and playing as an amateur at some of these events. What can you say about the way he's playing?
VIJAY SINGH: Well, he's only, what, 22, 21? He's got the whole world in front of him.
I played with him at the U.S. Open this year. All I know, he's got a great golf swing and a great future. He's got a lot of confidence riding right now. He just had his first win.
He's going to be a dangerous guy out there because he hits the ball so long as well. Apart from all that, he's a really nice guy.
Q. As well as you did play here in 1998 and 2000 and not win, do you feel like this course, this tournament owes you one here?
VIJAY SINGH: It owed me one in 1998. It took me a while to get over that one. Especially the shot I hit on 18. If I had to hit it over again, I'd do the same thing, and the ball went over the green.
You know, I would like to win this. I would like to win this event, especially, and on this golf course, because I've had so many good finishes, or two good finishes. You never know. We'll see on Sunday what happens.
Q. This is a little premature, but if you had to rank your season this year so far, before coming into this week's event, what would you say it ranks among some of your seasons over the last five or ten years?
VIJAY SINGH: Well, I've had better ones. The only good thing about this season, I played better last year but I didn't win a golf tournament. This year, I didn't play as good, but I won a golf tournament.
Apart from all that, I missed two cuts in big events, the British Open and my home course. I'm happy with the way -- if you look at the Money List, I've done well, but kind of a little bit disappointed that I didn't do well in the majors. I'm really gearing up for next year and now I'm really looking forward to the first event next year.
