Q. How much of a help has it been this week having Andy on your bag?
RICKY BARNES: He's really good for me. I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve a little bit too much and he kind of kicks me in the butt every once in a while and tells me to calm down. That's the main thing. He keeps me real calm and within the moment and I try to -- sometimes I get ahead of myself. And he steps me back a little bit. Calms me down, gives me some water. And that kind of stuff.
Q. That's your brother?
RICKY BARNES: Yeah.
Q. What's his name again?
RICKY BARNES: Andy.
Q. How do you balance being Bill's friend but wanting to beat him tomorrow?
RICKY BARNES: We're going to be talking and that kind of stuff. But when we get out there we're going to be competing. I think there's no doubt about that. And you know, hopefully we're both playing well. And hopefully -- I doubt that there will be any hard feelings between the two of us since we're good friends. But one of us has to win. So it's going to be tough. But may the best guy win.
Q. This is the second time that you qualified for this championship. How far did you get last time?
RICKY BARNES: I lost in the second round in Baltusrol in 2000.
BETH MURRISON: All set? Okay. Thanks very much.
RICKY BARNES: Thank you very much.
