Tiger Woods


Q. What a remarkable round - with two double-bogeys - you could be in the lead, but to finish 5-under over the last five holes -- tell us about your mental approach.

TIGER WOODS: Today was one of those rounds where I can't explain it. I had two doubles and a bogey, two eagles and birdies. I had 8 pars today which is good, made some pars at least. But it was just an interesting day. I figured something out last night with my golf swing on the range. I have really hit it good on the range and then on the golf course and started hitting my golf shots the way I used to and started getting the ball the normal distances again which kind of through me off, the balls long and (inaudible) made two double bogey because of that. Once I barreled in and trusted my own yardages, I was hitting my clubs and I was all right.

Q. What did you figure out?

TIGER WOODS: Left arm plane, left wrist at the top, rotation of the left arm coming down touched my head angle after impact (inaudible)--

Q. (Inaudible)

TIGER WOODS: I felt pretty good actually the whole day even though I made a lot of mistakes but I still stood over the shots, I felt like I was going to hit a good shot, even if it didn't turn to out a good shoot least, I felt -- I had a good vibe over the ball. I haven't had that in a little bit. It is a nice feeling to have that and towards the end I hit some good shots on top of having the good feeling.

Q. (Inaudible)

? TIGER WOODS: It all depends on what Davis does. If Davis -- he is at 12. If he goes ahead and sticks it to us and gets 4 -, 5-under par coming in, it will be awfully tough to catch him tomorrow.

Q. These last five holes, when was the last time you had a stretch like that?

TIGER WOODS: It's been a while. It's been a while. I don't know when the last time was. But I am out of guesses right now.

Q. (Inaudible)

TIGER WOODS: I have lost it for the last couple of months. I haven't really been hitting because my normal (inaudible) I am talking three, five yards. It is not that much, but when you are dealing with pins over bunkers, tucked in corners, then you have to be precise. I wasn't able to be as precise as I normally was.

Q. (Inaudible)

TIGER WOODS: 17 hit a 9-iron, 18 I hit 8-iron. One was downwind; one was back into the wind.

Q. Do you remember the last time you had a couple of doubles?

TIGER WOODS: That has been a while too. I don't remember doing that too often. It was just a weird thing that happened but the weird thing is that I had hit good shots. I hit 3-iron on No. 6 there, (inaudible) I carry it 272, I don't normally hit a 3-iron 272 yards. But I get back and make a few adjustments (inaudible). I could post a low one. I don't know. I need to hit the ball coming in today and make those putts like I did today.

Q. (Inaudible)

TIGER WOODS: I was pretty far back there for a little bit. Even today with five holes to go I wasn't really in it. 2-under par wasn't looking too good but I got to 7, Stevie says if we can get to seven or eight we'd be right back in the tournament with a chance to win. I was able to somehow post 7, so hopefully I will have a chance going out tomorrow, and I won't have too many shots to make up.

Q. (Inaudible)

TIGER WOODS: I said something very smart to him. He didn't like it and he threw a divot at me and I threw it back at him. We were needling each other the all day. We were on each other the whole day.
