Q. How long does it take you to come down from a win like this and start focusing on the Ryder Cup next week?
TIGER WOODS: I'll start focusing on Monday, tomorrow. I'm going to celebrate tonight. And tomorrow when we all get on the bus together and head on down there, then obviously things change, I'll start getting ready.
Q. What area do you feel technically you most see you could improve on or would like to work on? Are you happy with everything?
TIGER WOODS: I think it's overall consistency. Obviously trying to hit the ball -- your ball flight more consistent day after day, shot after shot, and if you have a consistent trajectory you can control your distance, you can control keeping the ball in play in the fairways, and that to me is where I'm trying to get to. I'm trying to get more consistent.
It's a lot of work, let me tell you. It's not easy. When you get to this level how we are on tour, there really aren't a whole lot of things you can do to get better. It's a little bit here and a little bit there. You just need to find that little bit to get that much better.
Q. Is there something in your swing?
TIGER WOODS: I think it's just the overall consistency of the plane of the swing, making sure I'm arcing the plane off properly in the correct spots. There's a certain position in the swing where I know I play my best from, trying to get there day after day after day. That's the hardest part, is we're going to get just a little bit off, not only from day to day, but moment to moment. It's not easy to try to tie all that together, but it's also a lot of fun, too.
Q. Sergio put down a bit of a marker for the coming week with his 62 today. He said he would relish the chance to go head-to-head with you at the Belfry, given obviously it's a blind draw; is that something that would get your juices going?
TIGER WOODS: I think it would be a lot of fun. Sergio and I have played head-to-head before in match-play I think at Bighorn. I think we actually played together in the best ball, I think it was. Is that right? Do you remember? Was that best ball? So we've played together in match-play before, and I think it would be a lot of fun. I think we would both enjoy it. I'm sure the fans would enjoy it, but I think it would be a lot of fun for both of us, to go out and compete in that type of atmosphere. Hopefully we both would play well, but I think it would be a lot of fun.
Q. There is an American-team dinner tonight at the hotel. Will you be buying the drinks?
TIGER WOODS: I didn't know there was a team dinner. Is there a team dinner? What time?
TODD BUDNICK: We need to get him out of here.
Q. You went into this week with a new set of irons; did they work out as expected or better than expected?
TIGER WOODS: Better than expected. I knew that the clubs were just as good, if not better than what I've been playing, and to come out this week and hit it that well with them -- I knew I was hitting well at home, but to come out here and do it in a tournament is a different story. When you know you have to hit good shots because the guys are going to go low. I was able to hit shot after shot flush consistently, and I controlled my trajectory well.
Q. We saw Curtis charging around in a buggy talking to Phil and Mark Calcavecchia and Azinger; did he come up to you?
TIGER WOODS: He came up to me on Friday.
Q. Did he say anything to you?
TIGER WOODS: No, nothing, just "how are you playing." I said, "what do you think?"
TODD BUDNICK: Just go through your birdies and eagle.
TIGER WOODS: First hole, I hit a 3-iron off the tee, hit a sand wedge up there to about 10 feet and made it.
No. 4, I hit a 2-iron off the tee and 8-iron up there to about 15 feet, made it.
No. 5, I hit a driver and 2-iron and 2-putted from about 40 feet.
No. 10, I hit a driver and a 3-iron to about 12 feet and made it for eagle.
And No. 14, I hit a 7-iron up there to about eight feet, made it.
And 17, I hit a 3-wood off the tee left, hit a 4-iron right of the green, pitched it up there to about 12 feet and made it.
Q. Is this the first time you've hit a 3-wood off the tee this week?
TIGER WOODS: I've hit it every day, except for the first day.
TODD BUDNICK: Thank you, congratulations, Tiger.
