GEORGE, SOUTH AFRICA
Q. It seemed like the golf course was really winning the contest today until it laid down a little bit with the wind in the afternoon. You came up with five birdies coming in.
RETIEF GOOSEN: Yeah, it played a little bit easier, the front nine was playing very tough.
Q. Yesterday was a demoralizing afternoon for the international side, Ernie Els tapped it off with a chip-in at of the last but you bounded back hard.
VIJAY SINGH: It was a good team talk yesterday and the captain said he's going to go out and do something and he did and put a strong team back together again. The team played really well. He hung in there and birdied coming in. Yesterday we wanted to win so bad and we just had a good team talk and go out and enjoy the game and that's what we did. Retief and myself, we played well together and splitting us yesterday wasn't a very good idea, so we got back and he really played well. He was out of the holes quite a few times but when we needed him, he was the one.
Q. Did the conditions favor the International Team today?
RETIEF GOOSEN: Some of the guys hit the ball a little bit better in the windier conditions. I had a couple good shots to help him out.
Q. You are in better shape for Sunday than yesterday.
VIJAY SINGH: It's going to be a tough one tomorrow. The team that is down comes out strong the next day so hang in there.
