Q. Do you ever look at any of Byron's swing theories --
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I have.
Q. (Inaudible) just talk about 55 years or so, some of his theories still play today?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, they do. But I think the modern game has changed. The leg drive is not as apparent in the teachings of the modern teachers now. It's more hitting the club in front of you, rotating it through, letting the bigger muscles do the work for you, the upper body. The legs are just there for stability. That's about it.
TIGER WOODS: Different than modern teaching these days a lot of it has changed. But when you play to win like this, that's exactly what you do think about.
I had some old clubs at home. I like practicing with old clubs. I find that I hit the ball just as well with (inaudible) nice to go back and --
Q. Tiger, do you think the Master's committee might heed your suggestion that seniors get the five-year exemption if they make the cut or were you throwing that out there?
TIGER WOODS: They probably won't (inaudible) now. They had their committee of -- I think it was Raymond and Tom and Hootie, I think. They are the ones that came up with the policy and they obviously changed it just a touch, but it would be nice if (inaudible) Master's and know you were coming back for a lifetime. Some of the guys have taken advantage of that rule.
Q. (Inaudible) Would it surprise you to be within four or five of the lead?
TIGER WOODS: The way it's playing coming in, you're going to have to get good shots. And obviously Maruyama was playing really well. And it would be nice if I was that close.
Q. Tiger, when you and David play together, a lot of people anticipate fireworks. Do you sense that when you're out there playing with him (inaudible) huge for you, but any difference when you're playing with David?
TIGER WOODS: I don't think it's any different. I think just a lot more fun for me. It's always nice when you get paired up with a buddy and go around talking about other things that are going on rather than just going out there and playing a round of golf. That, to me, is a lot of fun.
Q. (Inaudible) need this kind of weather (inaudible) but you look like you enjoy the challenge of trying to hit some different golf shots?
TIGER WOODS: It's nice to be able to work the golf ball and know that you have to do it. You can't just step up there and hit a normal standard shot off there. You're going to have to control your trajectory, control your spin, and that to me is fun. That's why I love playing the British Open because we get a chance to do that.
Q. What number do you think (inaudible)?
TIGER WOODS: You know, it all depends on the wind. If the wind blows like this, I won't have to go as low as I think I have to. I think if -- a lot of it is on the wind. If I can get this wind tomorrow, that would be nice.
Q. You don't even go in thinking like you need a 64?
TIGER WOODS: No. You've got to wake up and see what the conditions are and make your determination based upon that, but if any -- in any case you're going to have to get off to a good start. That's the most important part.
Q. Thanks a lot.
