Q. Through history, we know that there are some differences between Japan and the United States. Is there any special feeling about defeating the United States in this World Cup?
SHIGEKI MARUYAMA: Well, the format of the tournament is different. But I'm sure that it showed that Japan can play a little better golf now, and I'm happy with that.
Q. These four days we have been watching your golf shoes. Where did you buy them? They are beautiful golf shoes?
SHIGEKI MARUYAMA: In Japan. (Laughter.) Very expensive. (Laughter.)
Q. Your reaction on 18 when you saw the board being changed, the crowd reacted to and seemed to enjoy. Can you talk about that?
TOSHI IZAWA: Looking at the board, even the bogey, we were able to win the tournament. Just hope that Maruyama won't hit it over the green to the creek. (Laughter.)
Q. How about the crowd?
SHIGEKI MARUYAMA: Well, they gave us a big clap and they were standing up. It was very cheerful and I really enjoyed it.
