Q. Bob doesn't make a lot of mistakes and that makes it more difficult to beat him in these conditions do you think?
BOB BURNS: Sure. Sure. He is tied for the lead and he makes 17 pars and a birdie. That's pretty solid golf. That is tough to beat if you make a few mistakes, which, you know, 70 percent, 80 percent of the professionals out here are doing. He's four time winner now so he's got a pretty good credibility.
BOB BURNS: I thought I did. I thought I heard somebody say splash or go in the water or something like that. Yeah. I don't know if it did or not. It didn't affect the shot much.
BOB BURNS: It did to me. It did to me.
Q. We didn't see many people go at that pin on 16 maybe because of exactly what happened, it trickled off that back front edge. What was the mindset behind taking that aggressive approach instead of maybe doing what Bob did, just threw it up there and hoping it trickled down a little bit?
BOB BURNS: Well it was perfect. It fit my shot. The wind was off the right a little bit. I had 140 to the hole, 139, I think. And it was just a perfect little draw 9-iron. And the wind may have been helping or just two or three degrees more out of the direction going towards help. That carried the ball further. It was coming in perfect. It was 10, 15 feet right of the hole with a draw. Going to bounce and stop and be somewhere within 10 feet is what I thought.
Q. Both you and Rich have missed, have mentioned how much you get mixed up for each other. There's got to be a couple of good store rest on it and have you ever played a trick in reverse with it or anything?
BOB BURNS: No. We haven't done anything crazy yet. We just -- Rich gets a little pissed off when people say hi Burns, Bob, what's going on. People call me Rich or Beemer, I say hey, how's it going?
(Laughter.) We tease each other a lot about that. Anything else? Okay. All set.
JOE CHEMYCZ: Bob, thank you.
BOB BURNS: All right. Thank you.
