Q. When you play with a teammate, is it almost harder to have a bad shot, rather than when you're playing as an individual in a regular TOUR event?
PHIL MICKELSON: I didn't feel that it was more difficult to play with a partner. I felt like today it really helped me because I've been sick all day and to not have to hit every shot, it was a nice break. I felt that if I had to play on my own, I would not have played nearly as well as if I had a partner as I did today.
Q. If you hit an errant shot, do you feel like you let your teammate down, not just 18, but in general?
PHIL MICKELSON: I could see where that would be the case, but we didn't feel that way. We didn't apologize for poor shots. We know that's part of the game. We fought as hard as we could.
Q. You guys got a great reception out here from the fans and certainly won over some new ones that probably didn't know much about golf.
PHIL MICKELSON: The people here were tremendous. We had great support in the tournament, and the people here treated all of the golfers just tremendously. It's a wonderful place to hold a World Golf Championship. It's a quality golf course, and everybody in the field enjoyed their stay very much.
