Q. How important is the front nine to the immediate attack tomorrow? It seems like guys have been scoring low on it all week.
TIGER WOODS: It's usually because the greens are so soft all morning, that the guys are able to take advantage of it. And these are poa annua greens starting out. They're always smooth by the time you finish. The last four or five holes you get the waffle effect. You hit a good putt and it wobbles down there. If you want to take advantage of it, you have to take advantage of it early.
Q. Nice chip there behind the green with grass like that.
TIGER WOODS: You have to blast it and hopefully you get lucky and gauge it right, and I didn't. It's just one of those things where you've been chipping around the greens before you go out, and it's just all blind luck, really.
Q. The scores were a little higher today. Is it just firming up a bit and playing quicker?
TIGER WOODS: They put some pretty good pins out there. They tucked them in the corners and had to really hit good shots to get close to them. And tomorrow they'll be tougher. They'll really hide them for tomorrow.
