Q. For all the talk about long hitters here, it always seems to come down to putting, the winner normally putts pretty well and you seem to be rolling it better now than you have perhaps in recent play. Would you just talk about your level of confidence on the greens here for the final round?
TIGER WOODS: Well, I've made my share of putts, but I think I've made my share of par putts. I think that's -- I've always said that it's a better feeling making a big par putt than it is making a birdie. This morning, I made a lot of par putts. I made about a 10-footer on 11 starting out. I made about a 4-footer on 14. I made about -- on 17, I made about a 10-footer again. And today, I made about an 8-footer on 14 for par.
These are things that you have to do in order to keep the momentum in the round going. I seem to have been successful at it so far.
Q. Has had this become more of a bomber's course because of the wet and did that increase your comfort level?
TIGER WOODS: If you look at it, I played the same way. I haven't changed anything.
Actually, the only thing I've actually changed is my approach to No. 5, with the -- they moved the tees around, and the winds has never been out of the east like this. I've played it a couple of times downwind and I've hit 3-wood off the tee; I've never hit 3-wood off that tee.
Q. To you, what are the main points of value getting in the final group with the guy you've been chasing all day?
TIGER WOODS: Just a goal. That's about it. You know, if you can get in the final group, you know at least you've done your job that day. You've played really well.
JIM BLANCHARD: Tiger, thank you for being with us. You're a great favorite here and we wish you well tomorrow.
TIGER WOODS: Thank you.
