Q. As a friend of Freddie's, how cool is it to see him up on the leaderboard, A, and B, what is it about him that gets people to charged up? He's got such a following? What kind of intangibles are there?
DAVIS LOVE III: I was asked that outside. He's built the gallery being excited because of the way he plays. He makes it look to easy. His swing is effortless and the ball just screams off the club. Then when he makes a putt, his demeanor is like -- you know he's having fun. He celebrates a big putt probably as good as anybody. When he makes a big putt and he puts his fist out, people get excited. I think he's built that and they look for it. When he made that putt at 16 the last time he won here from just the fringe and stuck his arm up there, that was one of the most exciting putts at the end of a big tournament that I can remember, that one Tiger made across the green at 17 was pretty exciting, too. But in that theater for the crowd to roar for Freddie and for him to give that big fist pump, he's got a big forearm and it's fun to watch when he's playing well. When you know him and you know how much he loves to get inside the ropes and compete, it's even more fun to see him playing good. Someone asked me where has Freddie been. I said: He played good on the west coast. He was under the radar but he was playing pretty good. He's playing some tournaments and he's working on his game. It's hard out here for all of us and it's nice to see him back playing.
JOAN vT ALEXANDER: Thank you, Davis, for joining us.
