Q. Where's your body clock at the moment?
ERNIE ELS: I've been gradually moving east, and like I said, I went to Orlando for a couple of days and then I went to London. So I guess losing at The Match Play was better losing in one big slice rather than getting into the bunch, so it was better in a way. I'm feeling good. My body is feeling good.
Q. We're all suffering!
ERNIE ELS: Going east is always the toughest for me. Going west is easy: You go to sleep early, you wake up early in the morning. Going east is always difficult for me.
Q. Was it tougher yesterday morning of this afternoon?
ERNIE ELS: No, I think it almost played a little easier this afternoon I thought. The greens in the morning are very fresh and nice, but the greens were beautiful this afternoon. In a way, the golf course played shorter than yesterday morning. The little sea breeze that picks up really benefits you on quite a few holes, some of the par 5s.
So I thought the course played a little bit shorter than yesterday morning. When I played the back nine, I really tried to attack a lot of the holes.
Yeah, if the wind doesn't blow, yeah, the golf course plays quite easy.
