Q. Were you watching him much? Do you tend to do that?
JUSTIN ROSE: I'm always interested in -- yeah, he's the second best player in the world and see what it's all about, see what it takes. He's a wonderful scrambler, just gets the ball in the hole. I think his biggest attribute is he doesn't let his bad shots get to him. He stays patient and doesn't get rattled out there.
GORDON SIMPSON: You're pretty good at that yourself, are you not?
JUSTIN ROSE: I'm fairly good at that, yeah.
Q. What do you feel is the strength of your game?
JUSTIN ROSE: I think the ability to go out and play when I'm not swinging the club, when I don't feel comfortable on the range. Because I haven't felt too comfortable on the range the last two days. And to be able to go out and churn out a couple of good scores, I think is one of my strengths.
Q. Do you think it might be difficult for you to watch the Ryder Cup. If they hadn't kept the same teams, you might have been in there.
JUSTIN ROSE: I would have been in it, but you know the story, and you know what it's all about. So it was never an issue. And I think the guys in it deserve their place, and that's the way it's going to be. I think it will be good for me to watch it now, thinking it's a real possibility for me in 2004. I might take more note about what it was all about, instead of viewing it as a fan, viewing it as sort of homework.
