"He apologised. Nothing to apologise for. I mean, that's just stupid long, isn't it? To hit it that far into the wind is phenomenal. It's just absolutely phenomenal. I used to be able to move the ball, not anymore. I just plod my way around, shoot 67."
Tiger Woods on Alvaro Quiros reaching the 606-yard uphill 11th with his second shot, while Tiger's group was still putting out.

"I had a terrible day putting, just terrible. I haven't putted this bad in a long time. You cannot win golf tournaments putting like that. I'm going to do something I haven't done in a long time which is go to the practice green after a round."
Phil Mickelson reflects on his first round 74.

"One person out there behind the ropes said, within earshot of me, I was like a gazillion over. That's what he said that to his friends. I was not intended to hear that, but I heard it. And he knows I heard it. I made it clear to him that I heard it."
For the record 2009 Open Champion Stewart Cink shot a 1-over par 73. Not a gazillion over. OK?!
