TIGER WOODS ( +5)
Q. Tiger, if we can just get you to assess your day for us, please.
TIGER WOODS: Well, that was a lot of shots. I hit the ball quite a few times, especially on the greens, and it was a long day.
Q. You’ve putted well obviously on poa before. What is it about here that —
TIGER WOODS: I don’t know, I didn’t putt well today at all. I didn’t have a feel for it, I didn’t see my lines, I couldn’t feel my pace and I was just off.
Q. Positives, so what positive can you take away from today?
TIGER WOODS: Well, I’m done. A new day tomorrow. That’s the way golf is, put it in the past and try to learn from what I did right and wrong. Obviously there wasn’t a whole lot I did right today, and figure it out for tomorrow.
Q. Tiger, after a day like today, are you glad you’re not playing golf next week?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I am.
Q. Tiger, if we can go into your thought process here, obviously there’s (inaudible) things to gain for next week for you. Was it physical, just getting ready for the Masters?
TIGER WOODS: Well, the idea is to peak around Augusta time, yes. I just felt I wasn’t going to be ready for next week, a little rundown and playing at altitude as well isn’t going to help that, so take the week off.
Q. When you’re struggling on the greens like that, is it hard to kind of not let that bleed into your ball-striking?
TIGER WOODS: No. I didn’t have a problem focusing or feeling my swings out there, but there are times when I’m sure any of us have struggled on the greens and you feel like you’re not rolling the ball in the hole, kind of jamming it in the hole. Uphill putts, I was just trying to wrap in there, take the lowest line and try to wrap them in there, blown by four, five, six feet. That was a constant theme this entire day.
