Q. As good as you drive it and a lot of these guys coming out here, how important is the short game and -- (inaudible)
Getting up-and-down what it's all about because are not going to hit it good everyday especially when you play in windy conditions like this. You are going to miss some greens. Your short game is what base you out. You are able to win tournaments or at least come close to wining tournaments when you don't have your best stuff. I have won a lot of tournaments not hitting the ball well, but I have scrambled well. And I think that's very underrated out here is how good a lot of these guys are around the greens here.
TIGER WOODS: I was just positioning in the swing, trying to get my setup and my take away a little bit better. When I can do that I feel like I can make the correct downswing, but yesterday I wasn't able to do that. I had the thought, I just didn't quite get it.
Q. One shot at a time?
TIGER WOODS: I don't know. I know the weather is supposed to be pretty windy tomorrow. You don't know how windy. If I can shoot another number like I did today if it's blowing like this I would be in good shape.
Q. Throw your name up there and have everybody something to think about?
TIGER WOODS: Certainly I would like to get up there with a chance.
Q. Tomorrow it's 20 to 30 miles an hour even more than today. Doesn't that play into your wheelhouse?
TIGER WOODS: If I am playing well. I think it plays into anyone's wheelhouse if they are playing well because any time the wind is blowing hard the guy who is striking the ball the best are the guys that are going to be on top of that board. You can't get away with hitting marginal shots and just struggling and getting around shooting a good number. You can't do that in winds like that.
Q. When you get up this morning do you have a talk like, gee, I have got to get going or I am going to miss the cut do you -- (inaudible)?
TIGER WOODS: Not this morning, but certainly after I finished yesterday, I wasn't exactly in the best of moods when I went to practice a little bit. It was nice to be able to hit a few balls and cool off.
Q. You did have this look on the first couple of holes out there, just a focus, it was like you were so angry about yesterday, that it is such --
TIGER WOODS: I didn't like the way I played yesterday because I knew what I was doing wrong in my golf swing but I just couldn't stop it. That's frustrating, and today I felt a lot better with my warm-up. I said, just go out there and just trust it, trust your move. Whatever happens, happens. Just be committed. Yesterday I wasn't committed on every shot. I had the intent but not the focus to -- I didn't have the focus I needed to have to hit shots properly.
TIGER WOODS: I think with these windy conditions it certainly helped. If I shoot a good round like I did today, you can move up that board pretty quickly. A lot of the guys who were able to shoot solid rounds moved up that board.
