Q. Obviously a win here would be some good momentum for the British. What will preparation the next two weeks consist of and will it involve some fly fishing?
TIGER WOODS: Probably. I know I'm just going to go practice a little bit, work on a few things and make sure I keep engraining the things I'm working on, and obviously it's working. More than anything, get some rest, get some much-needed rest, because when you go over there and play in major championships it's a long week, especially when you can have any kind of weather.
Q. Will you be stopping in in Ireland?
TIGER WOODS: Possibly. I haven't really confirmed it yet, but there's a good chance.
Q. You were just saying the other day how you love this course and it fits your eye. It's no secret Cog Hill would like to host a U.S. Open. Knowing that you love this course the way it is, can this course host an Open?
TIGER WOODS: As of right now, no, it needs to be toughened up.
Q. Which would mean lengthening?
TIGER WOODS: Lengthening it, adding bunkers, making the greens more difficult, something like that, because the golf course is not in a shape where it could host a U.S. Open.
Q. Would that make it less appealing to you to come back to the Western since you like it the way it is now?
TIGER WOODS: No, as long as they don't change the routing. You may add a few different things here and there, add a bunker, but the overall shape of the holes, I think that's -- that's why I like this place so much is it just looks good each and every tee shot.
Q. What if they played it to a par 70 or 71?
TIGER WOODS: No. I mean, the greens aren't -- they're big, so if you drive the ball in the fairway you're going to see some really low scores if they did have a U.S. Open here. I just don't see it, not under these conditions. Now, if they redesigned the golf course and made it much more difficult, then yes, it could.
Q. Kresge said he was comfortable today in a situation that he had never been in before. Could you tell us how he handled himself out there today?
TIGER WOODS: He played well considering what he had to deal with today with his foot. He hung in there pretty good.
TODD BUDNICK: Let's go through your birdies. Start with the one on No. 2.
TIGER WOODS: 2, I hit a 9-iron to about four feet, made that.
3, I hit a sand wedge to about eight feet, made that.
Eagle, 6, I hit a 6-iron there to about 25 feet or so, made that.
7, I hit a sand wedge to about 12 feet.
8, I described.
9, I hit a driver off the deck, mishit it a little bit, hit it short right and hit a decent flop shot out of that lie I had and made about a 12-footer down the hill.
11, lost my drive just a touch right. The rough snagged my club and I hit it left in the tree and I actually got a great break. It came down where I had a shot, and I lashed it up there to about three feet.
13, I three-putted from about 35 feet, ran the first putt by about three feet and missed it.
And 14 I hit an 8-iron right in the bunker, hit a pretty good bunker shot to keep it where I did, then hit a decent chip to just miss on the low side and tapped it in for bogey.
15, I hit a driver and a 4-iron in the left bunker and blasted it out to about four feet, made that.
17, I hit a 3-wood and a wedge and made about a 12-footer.
TODD BUDNICK: Thank you, Tiger. Good luck tomorrow.
