Q. How many of your shots were affected by that today, by the mud?
TIGER WOODS: Probably about six.
Q. Any that stood out that really went awry?
TIGER WOODS: 10 this morning, I hit a beautiful drive and had mud on the left side of the ball, and with a hook lie like that, pin on the left side, I aimed it at the flag and it still went in the right bunker. So that's how much mud I had on the ball that turned it that far right when I came off a hook lie.
Q. 10 shots behind the leader after the first round, there are a lot of guys who are also struggling with that, with a couple of shots and you're --
TIGER WOODS: That's what I said. I said you don't have to play a great second round, just play a good, solid one. And this golf course is such that you can't go out there and then really push it and try to make a lot of birdies. You've got to be very patient. Put your ball in the spots and then go ahead and try to make putts. And that's what I tried to do and I have been doing that this afternoon.
Q. Was it a good thing that you didn't have to sleep on that first day?
TIGER WOODS: I don't know I actually hit the ball pretty good. I just didn't make any putts at all. I didn't make any birdies. If I make my share of birdies, I'm even par or 1-under par. So with that in mind all I need to do is go out there and make a couple putts. And that's what did I this afternoon.
Q. Did the course play as expected today?
TIGER WOODS: I think it played probably a little bit muddier than people thought. As I said, the mud balls, there were quite a few. Ricky got a couple good ones. I know I got a few pretty questionable ones. But that's just the way it is. Everybody has to deal with it.
Q. Ricky Barnes playing with the number one player in the world. He played pretty well?
TIGER WOODS: He did. He played beautifully today. He hit a lot of good shots. But more than anything, he really played well, but he really conducted himself well.
