Q. How did you rate Colin's shot on 8 and what were the blustery conditions and how they affected it, the play today?
PADRAIG HARRINGTON: The conditions were very difficult for foursomes. That was for sure. You know, swirling wind, gusting at times, greens firming up, getting faster, it was a day that you were thinking, keep making pars and you would do well.
Thankfully we made a few birdies. But to be honest, Colin shot an ace. It's amazing how circumstances change. I hit a good 4-iron in there pitched pin-high and we could have walked up, and it was unlucky to finish where it was because it was stone dead. We felt there was no way of getting up-and-down. We had just messed up 7, and all of a sudden this match is going to go away from us.
Colin hit the perfect chip, unbelievable, and it won the match there and then. The fact that our ball got stuck up in the fringe behind was a stroke of luck for us, because Colin hit a chip shot, turned that hole around and then all of the sudden we won the next three holes. It was, in one shot, we won the match there and then. The whole momentum swung towards us and from there on, we could do no wrong.
JULIUS MASON: Mr. Montgomerie, Mr. Harrington. Thank you.
