Q. What is the reference point from the 1st tee?
DES SMYTH: It's a yellow stake up in the distance. That little path that goes out there. Then it extends to the fairway. But there's a yellow post down there. It a crossing post, that's it.
DES SMYTH: It is because you can't see the fairway. You just see that little strip in front of you. There's a few tee shots like that you don't see anything. I think 6 is like that too, if I am not mistaken, you can't see anything off the tee.
DES SMYTH: I think it's all the golf we play. We play golf every single day, that keeps you sharp and competitive. (Inaudible)
Q. Scoring could go very low?
DES SMYTH: Yes. Course is very fair. It is all about hitting it straight. They have to hit it straight.
Q. 63 is the Open record, if I am not mistaken. Can it be broken here?
DES SMYTH: I think if the weather stays like this it's a possibility although they have some tough pins out there. You want to be careful. It's all about hitting fairways and not missing the green on the wrong side. There's a few times today myself and Ray said you can't even go for that pin. Hit it in the middle of the green, because if you happen to miss it right, it's an automatic bogey. There's a lot of that sort of planning while you are out there. Other than that, just keep hitting it straight.
