DARREN CLARKE: You always feel a little bit nervous but whenever you are playing against Davis who is one of my best friends on the US Tour, that makes it a lot easier, and Chad is a gentleman too so that makes it a lot easier too.
Q. How were the galleries?
DARREN CLARKE: They were fantastic, clapping us as much as they were clapping the American guys so we couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t ask for more.
DARREN CLARKE: I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t think we could have wished for a better start. I hit five iron to eight feet for an eagle at the second, which we didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t actually need in the end but it was a great shot and then I birdied the fourth and the fifth when Chad was just inside me so that was a big momentum thing for us. We were very comfortable with each other and Miguel played great ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ you only need to look at the season statistics to see that wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t going to be a surprise ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ and I really enjoyed it. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½m excited and looking forward to this afternoon.
MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ: The key today was the way we started, it was absolutely fantastic and we felt like we were in control right from the start. My last Ryder Cup was in America too and the crowd was good. The way we have started gives the guys a boost for this afternoon too.
