SERGIO GARCIA: Trying to get myself in a good position for the weekend.
SERGIO GARCIA: I'm swinging it really nicely. I feel like I have a lot of control with my ball flight, and you know it's just a matter of keep getting my putter going a little bit.
I went to -- inaudible -- worked on my putting and we looked at some really nice things. I feel like I'm getting a nice roll and just a matter of time of waiting for it to happen.
SERGIO GARCIA: Really, nothing really worked until the last four holes. I felt like I hit a lot of good shots and a good amount of fairways and really good putts. Unfortunately I couldn't really hole anything until that putt on 6 for eagle. Then I hit it stiff on the next two, but unfortunately just underhit my putter a little bit.
SERGIO GARCIA: It was probably about a 30-footer.
SERGIO GARCIA: Definitely. Anything under par on this course is always good stuff. It feels really nice to be able to finish. Of course, you know, it would have been nice to make that last one, but it feels really nice to be 3-under par on this course when you know, it felt like I wasn't going to be able to make a birdie all day even though I was hitting very good shots.
SERGIO GARCIA: Of course. I love playing golf with Vijay. He's a great guy and of course we all know how good of a player he is. We have a lot of fun together, we talk a little bit and we have some laughs. He's a funny guy, so he's actually a very nice guy to play with.
TIGER WOODS: I felt better than I did last week. I was in bed most of the time.
TIGER WOODS: Very pleased because today was a day that I got a lot out of my round because I probably should not have got what I shot. I didn't feel like I was very strong out there, but, you know, hey, I hung in there and made a few putts and lo and behold, I shot a round under par.
TIGER WOODS: I'm grinding out there. I don't have the skills that I normally do, but, hey, I've just got to go out there and play and just try and survive and hopefully feel a little better tomorrow and hopefully get stronger each and every day.
TIGER WOODS: No, I'm going to bed right now.
TIGER WOODS: I've lost about seven pounds. I'm not 100%, that's for sure.
TIGER WOODS: I got a lot out of the round because I didn't hit it particularly well, but I made some putts and just hung in there with my putter and thank goodness that I made those putts.
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, most of last week, yeah.
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, considering that -- looking on that board, everybody on the North Course is just tearing it apart. So hopefully tomorrow I can go out there and do about the same.
TIGER WOODS: I'd much rather be in bed right now.
