Q. And two, you had talked on Wednesday or Tuesday about Ricky Barnes and your impressions of him. Now you see him on the board there, top-5 right now, are you impressed or and what kind of impressions do you have seeing his name on the board all day?
PHIL MICKELSON: Well, I knew, what type of player he was so it obviously wasn't a surprise to me. He hits the ball a long ways. He hits his irons very solid. He's a very complete player. You can see it not only in the practice round but you could see it in all his play in college events, his victory in the US Amateur. He's a very complete player and I would not be surprised at all if he stayed there for 72 holes. In fact, I expect that type of play out of him.
Q. Watching on TV, I wasn't on the golf course just watching, could you talk about the short putts that you made, was it on 11 and I think on 8.
PHIL MICKELSON: I didn't miss a short one on 11. I missed a 8 footer on 8. I missed one putt today where or I hit one bad putt today that I didn't start on line. And that was the one on 10. My second day, the two holes before it. It was the only putt that I didn't hit on line. I certainly missed putts today, but every one of them was on line with either, with the wrong speed or the wrong read.
Q. When the horn went off you kind of threw your visor down. What did you feel?
PHIL MICKELSON: Well the three of us had said that we want to go play 12. It was calm, there was no wind. We wanted to play 12. So I had tapped out, continued in an attempt to get over to the tee box to at least one of us hit and when the group in front of us didn't get off the green I didn't have a chance to hit because -- I would have hit before our guys finished on 11, in an effort to play 12. Because very rarely do we get in that calm of conditions.
BILLY MORRIS: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you. And Phil good luck to you tomorrow.
PHIL MICKELSON: Thank you.
