LUKE DONALD: We both will be playing in the Sony Open, I think that's our next one. We'll have some well-deserved rest. I think it's always nice to finish on a high note, and it will make our small off-season that much more enjoyable. So party on. (Laughter.)
Q. Can you give us some of the distances for your birdie putts?
PAUL CASEY: 4, 30 feet.
No. 5, foot and a half.
No. 7, 20 feet.
No. 9, eight feet.
No. 10, oh ...
LUKE DONALD: 50.
PAUL CASEY: Yeah, 45, 50.
No. 11, 16, 17 feet.
No. 12, 12-foot. Maybe a little bit more.
Oh, you made one on 16.
LUKE DONALD: I made one on 1, too. (Laughter.)
PAUL CASEY: And the last was probably three-foot, 3 1/2 feet, four feet.
LUKE DONALD: It's amazing how it works out, but apart from the first, my next birdie putt, unless -- well, the next birdie putt is really 15. You don't putt teeing off on the odds, unless you have an eagle on the par 5, but it's quite amazing how that works out.
Q. Any sort of general feelings on what's been the worst of the weeks but now the best of weeks?
PAUL CASEY: I'm very happy with the way I've handled myself this week. I've been very professional. I've not enjoyed what's happened early in the week, and this is a nice way to finish it. I've tried to put all of my focus on my golf as soon as I've arrived at the golf course and very proud that I've managed to do that, and it has been distracting.
Q. Are you a stronger player because of it?
PAUL CASEY: Possibly, yes. Thicker-skinned, as well.
Q. Sort of following, what do you expect in your first tournament in the States?
PAUL CASEY: I hope they will be very receptive. I don't know whether they will be. I don't know. I really don't know. I'm going to worry about working on the golf game during the off-season, and probably try and repair any damage I can. I still feel upset with various people for what's happened but we will move on.
Hopefully they will be receptive. I'm looking forward to it, but there's a little something in there, a little bit worried about it, as well. All I can do is try and play good golf and that's it.
Q. Is there any special reason for you wearing black today?
PAUL CASEY: No, it was the last thing left in the suitcase. (Laughter.) We didn't have very good team colors this week, did we?
LUKE DONALD: We were close today.
PAUL CASEY: And I thought it was going to be colder, as well, this week. Do we get to play next year as a team?
GORDON SIMPSON: I don't think so.
PAUL CASEY: Do we not?
Q. One of you has to be the top Englishman.
PAUL CASEY: They changed the rules.
GORDON SIMPSON: That was a couple years ago.
PAUL CASEY: Oh, damn.
GORDON SIMPSON: Can't have everything.
PAUL CASEY: Well, if we do get to play together again, we'll figure some team uniforms out.
Q. If one of you is the top Englishman, can you guarantee the other will be your partner?
PAUL CASEY: I don't think you can at this stage. You need to have as good of a team as possible. You've got to win it for your country. That's what comes first. There were guys coming into this, obviously Poulter was probably the man in form, I would say.
Q. And Lee is the top-ranked Englishman at the moment.
PAUL CASEY: There you go.
GORDON SIMPSON: So it will be Westwood and Poulter next year.
LUKE DONALD: Hopefully not.
Q. Is it possible to compare this victory, you've both had individual triumphs, how does it feel or is it possible to say, just different, I guess?
LUKE DONALD: Yeah, it's different, having a team event, as opposed to individual. I think it's obviously ranked well up there as a win for both of us, I believe. There's only four World Golf Championships events a year, and to win one of them is very special. It comes with a -- it's a very good event. It has some very good players. I think it was an exciting event to watch on TV, and it was one that I will remember for a long time.
As I said in my speech, I've always wanted to win in Spain, and I think that will make it that much more special for me. But it's a big event. It's hard to compare the two, though.
Q. The message you got from your friend, the rugby player, is he a well-known rugby player?
LUKE DONALD: He wasn't a rugby player. He's just a friend of mine, not a rugby player.
GORDON SIMPSON: Well, you've treated us to some exceptional golf this week. Paul, Luke, congratulations again and enjoy your winter break.
