Q. Birdies came in bunches today. Is that coincidence or --
FRED COUPLES: I don't think it is a coincidence. I had 8 birdies - they are kind of hard to scatter around. But I did hit some real aggressive shots in there and some of the holes I didn't really play away from the pins but as I was talking to my caddie, new course there's a few holes where you go long left or long right you go down an embankment and we paid a lot of attention -- I came up short a few times, because I didn't want to go long. Tomorrow I will know a little bit more about the course. The pins will be on the other sides of the greens, but I didn't really want to make mistakes because I felt like I was hitting the ball really well. Oddly enough, the par 5s in the front, are good holes. I didn't birdie either of them but the ones that I did birdie I drove the ball long and very straight on those holes. Had nothing but wedges except for the long par 3. That's kind of where I played this course and tomorrow if I go out and don't drive it well, you can be in trouble -- you can't play this course from the rough all day. The rough is not that thick, but you have got to keep the ball in play and when you drive it in the rough then you have got to get it on the green. Par 5 lay it up and get a good yardage for a wedge.
Q. Is it fair to say today was fun out there?
FRED COUPLES: Yeah, sure it was fun. Fun to play in Houston. I enjoy coming back. And the best thing about it is it's a hell of a course. I think Peter and Jim Hardy -- I saw them yesterday and I really think that this is a golf course that you can't dislike. It's got every kind of shot. They tried to make it really long. It wasn't that windy today, I drove the ball really well, didn't seem that long; tomorrow if the wind blows on a few key holes, especially 16 or 17 and 18, those are some extremely you have tough holes to keep a round going. My round, I played well the back. Then I got the front, I think if it was vice versa it wouldn't be that easy to shoot 2-, or 3-under on the back nine after cruising around the front.
