Geoff Ogilvy


Q. (Inaudible).
GEOFF OGILVY: You still have to be careful with uphill putting. You're used to hitting uphill putts quite firmly on links. And you have to make sure you don't. It's more different than ridiculous. It's a reprogram-the-brain thing.

Q. Was it different from the practice rounds?
GEOFF OGILVY: No, they looked like they could be this way. So they are different from the practice rounds, but just the normal Wednesday to Thursday progression.

Q. The R&A were speaking about it earlier, even though some have shot good rounds, do you think they're aiming to do something over the night?
GEOFF OGILVY: That's the conundrum, for our side of the draw, it would be disappointing if tomorrow afternoon's players didn't see what we saw. It would be disappointing. You just want it the same. As I said, it's not that crazy. It's just not what we're used to on a links. You don't want to see one pin get silly. There was nothing silly there, it was just really fast. So hopefully it's the same tomorrow as it was today.

Q. Some of the guys were saying some of the pins are a bit nasty?
GEOFF OGILVY: I hit 3-wood, 3-iron -- well, the second shot was the best shot I had all day. And I had 12 feet, and I couldn't go for it. If I did I was going to have a ten-foot par-putt. You can see how much it breaks; it breaks a lot. Normally on links when they're at nine or ten, that's fine. 8 doesn't look as tricky as it is. Harris hit a putt in the group that basically stopped next to the hole. It didn't really stop until six feet past. It just never stopped. It's tricky, as I said, more of a reprogramming for us, because we don't see this very often out here.

Q. You said after tomorrow (inaudible).
GEOFF OGILVY: It's not horrible, if there's a little bit of color in the green tomorrow morning, we can hit a few good shots. Hopefully I can make some birdies. There's a few red numbers, I think most of them were early. I don't think two or three or 4-under tomorrow. You're not going to have to be many under par on Sunday to win. It makes it more difficult when you go a few over on the first day, but you're not out of it.
