JACK NICKLAUS: Our guys are charged. They are pumped. They are absolutely pumped right to the ceiling right now.
I tell you, I told Tim out on the green, this has absolutely been a great bunch of guys and a great bunch of gals. I have not had one problem in two captaincies in the Presidents Cup with any individual or wife or anything, no issues, zero. And they have all been pumped, enthusiastic, supportive right through.
I tell you, and as I told Tim on the green, the reason I think that happens is the format. You don't sit guys out. If you've got four guys sitting out every day, all of a sudden you've got, oh, "why am I sitting out," the wife says "why is my husband sitting out," and you've got, you know, that thing. We don't have that here. I think that's what's so great about these matches.
Q. Just your thoughts on what I asked about, we've been tied since the beginning of 2003 here, how do you look at the matches?
GARY PLAYER: It never entered my mind because the guys are all trying so hard, just like Jack says. They are all so pumped up trying to win. It just shows you that that when you take, you know, these players, the best players in the world, that kind of thing can happen. You can expect that to happen. They are all pumped up.
JACK NICKLAUS: It's called pride, guys.
GARY PLAYER: Even if you're playing a practice round for a five-dollar Nassau, you're trying like crazy to win.
JAMES CRAMER: Thank you very much.
