"It's not a run-away deal. Looked like a run-away thing at the end of yesterday. But it looks like the guys are really set to give Tiger a go and the crowd could sense that."
Ernie Els, five shots behind 2009 PGA Championship leader, Tiger Woods at 3-under.

"I get the impression that there's a lot of people who are cheering me on wanting me to push him along, but they still want Tiger to win. You know, they would like the idea of, 'let's support the underdog until he catches up and then we'll support Tiger again' sort of thing."
Padraig Harrington, tied for second place at 6-under, knows his place.

"You can't write too much Tiger Woods. And Tiger is a story even when he loses. He's even a bigger story when he loses in some cases. That's what people want. That's just the way it is. We didn't create that world, I don't believe. I think the fans did."
Veteran US golf writer Dan Jenkins.

"That or pre-season football. My Chargers play tonight."
Phil Mickelson, tied 70th on 8-over, when asked if he would be watching the climax of the PGA Championship.

"I'm waterproof. So I'm doing okay, then."
Henrik Stenson, tied fourth at 4-under is looking forward to a spot of rain at Hazeltine.
