THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

March 24, 2005

Sergio Garcia

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA

Q. 6-under today. Talk a little bit about your round.

SERGIO GARCIA: You know, it was a nice round. I got off to a good start, birdieing three of the first four, and I actually had a really nice try on 14 from about eight feet that I missed. Then I hit a bad shot on 16, unfortunately made bogey there, where I had a good birdie opportunity and then got it going on the back nine.

I made a couple nice birdies, 2 and 3, hit two really good shots. I hit it really close on 4 to about three feet and I missed it unfortunately.

Then I hit another great shot on 7 to about nine feet and made that for birdie, and unfortunately I missed the eagle putt on 9. It's a shame, but my second shot was closer than my putt unfortunately.

Q. You and Lee and Padraig and Luke all up there on the first page, did you guys have a Ryder Cup meeting and decide to come out and torch this place?

SERGIO GARCIA: That's what we decide to do every week. Some weeks we do better than others. It's nice to see some fellow Europeans up there on the leaderboard and having a chance. Steve Jones I think played an awesome round, too, and I give him a lot of credit.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the week and hopefully keep playing the same way I played.

Q. Talk about the second shot on 9. Describe that for me.

SERGIO GARCIA: It was a great shot. I hit a nice cut 3-wood and I don't know how close it was. I thought it might be a two, and unfortunately it ended up being a four.
