Q. What do you have to do for your match tomorrow?
BEN CURTIS: Just have to go out and do my best. Thomas is a great player. I'll just have to go out there and may good golf. Obviously he played really well the last two days, so if I don't have my A Game, I'm going to be going home tomorrow.
Q. Have you had a chance to see Thomas' finish at the British?
BEN CURTIS: I've seen glimpse of it, but I've never watched the full tape of it. I just saw the 16th hole what happened to him. We just went out and had a good time. We sat there together at lunch and talked. I'm sure we'll go out there tomorrow and try to do the best we can.
Q. What did you talk about?
BEN CURTIS: His caddie was there and we were just talking about the golf. He was talking about his -- we were talking about Shaun Micheel.
Q. Do you feel he will be out for revenge?
BEN CURTIS: I don't think so. He's just like any other competitor. Obviously he wants to go out there and win, but I'm sure it will be a friendly match. This is a friendly tournament. Obviously you're trying to win, but it's one of those things, it's an honor to be here and you really do want to win. But you just try to do the best you can and if it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out.
Q. When was the last time you played match-play?
BEN CURTIS: I would say 2000 at the Western Amateur was the last time I played. Obviously, sometimes you play with your friend at home, you play match-play, but it's obviously a lot different than this.
Q. Philosophy this week?
BEN CURTIS: As firm as the ground is, you get a lot of roll off the tee, just try to go out there and make a lot of birdies. That's the only thing you can do. I don't think there was too many holes where we won with a par today, mostly birdies. You just have to go out there and try to make quite a few birdies.
Q. Were you brought up playing in windy conditions?
BEN CURTIS: Well, it's been blowing pretty much the same direction all week. You know, inside the trees when you're down the hole, you know, the wind is swirling, but once the ball gets above the trees, it's blowing the same direction. So you've just got to trust it and you just get the compass out. And he's got the map reader on the yardage book, so you just kind of go judge off that and you tell where the wind is coming from and that's how you deal with it.
