Vijay Singh


Q. How do you explain your round? Lot of guys coming off saying the course is soft. And the numbers haven't been there, but they were there for you today.
VIJAY SINGH: Well, you know, the golf course is not very difficult, but the pin placements are. You know, if you, like I said at the beginning of the week, if you mis-hit a shot, it's going to punish you if you mis-hit it badly. But if you just mis- hit it, it's okay.
But to hit to the greens as big as they are, the pin placements are very much on little slopes, and you've got to be on the correct side of the pins. So a lot of times you're 6, 8-foot away, but you have to read it so well and make a perfect putt to make it. So pin placement made it difficult.

Q. How important is it to have Mike and Stephen in this tournament over the weekend?

Q. The week when you're clearly one of the marquis names here, and there are not all that many of them, do you feel like it's almost a responsibility to get yourself up there and in the top?
VIJAY SINGH: I don't know. You cannot put that much pressure on yourself. You just go out there and try to play the best you can. And if you're in contention and leading the golf tournament going into the weekend, that's great. But, you know, it's not important in my head to go out there and be leading the golf tournament. It's important in my head to go out there and play solid golf, so...
