Q. What will the strategy be tomorrow; do you plan to go out with all guns blazing?
ERNIE ELS: I think you need a good start. It's tough to just get it going like I did today, the first three holes. If you make pars the first three holes, you'll be very satisfied with that. From there, you can start making your move depending on the weather tomorrow; that's another factor. Just play it the way it is. If it's tough, it's going to be tough to make pars. You've just got to try. We know what we have to do. I have to shoot something in the mid-60s to have a chance tomorrow. That's what I've got to try and do.
Q. The putt at 15, was that a mistake?
ERNIE ELS: I hit it too hard. I haven't quite been on my putting this week. That one from previous experience; it really breaks far from the right. I was going to make sure I hit it hard enough. I hit it too hard through the break; I thought I read it right but didn't hit a good putt.
Q. When you have had a break like you've had, three rounds into it, what is the last part of your game to come back?
ERNIE ELS: It's probably the short game, I would say. It depends. Sometimes it's the long but most of the time it's the short game. I said to Ricci today, we are going to Colombus next week and I've got the week off after that. The only thing I want to be working on is my short game, to really get that sharp and get that ready for the U.S. Open.
GORDON SIMPSON: Well played again today. Thank you.
