Q. It seems that there's a lot of camaraderie here. Do you think that's one of the reasons that you get so many athletes wanting to get on the Celebrity Players Tour?
DICK ANDERSEN: Absolutely. All athletes enjoy watching great players in other sports. Coming here, meeting the great players in hockey and baseball and basketball and the Olympics is really special.
So I think all athletes have that common bond, and so when we come to play golf, it's a separate different sport than we all played growing up, and professionally. And it's a great equalizer. Golf is a terribly difficult game, and so I think that's one of the things that makes it so much fun is the ability to meet and spend some time with the great athletes in all of the sports.
Q. What about the greens today, were they quicker than they have ever been in previous tournaments?
DICK ANDERSEN: I think they are. I think it's evidenced by the easier spring, the golf course is in great shape and they have the greens very fast. So putting, making two putts is at a premium and knocking the ball is a hole is at a premium. I think the greens are very fast and a real challenge.
