Q. Are the bunkers more penal than anything we have back in the States?
DAVIS LOVE III: I think so. They're real soft here, maybe not as bad and deep as other places, but they're very, very soft. I had a 4-iron bounce and it went in the bunker and buried. I was fortunate to make a long putt for par. You just don't want to go in there. Shingo got up half buried. You have to make sure you stay out of them.
Q. Did you think you had to play any shots that you hadn't practiced today?
DAVIS LOVE III: In the last three days I think I've hit them all. We've had little bets, so I've been all over the place, and played most of them. That's what we try to do is say, all right, if I hit it over here, am I going to know this shot or know that shot. So I hit a lot of 8, 9-irons out of the rough to see how the ball would react, and hit a lot of pitches and chips around the greens, to get used to running it up the hills. So, I'd say no, I pretty much had practiced most of them. Now, for three days, not all my life. I'm not an expert at some of these shots.
