I think playing the Mercedes last week in all that wind is a little bit of a benefit for me to come over. The golf courses are totally different, but you still have to hit those low, piercing shots and you have to be able to work the ball into the wind.

#Land

When this golf course plays firm and fast, I don't think that length is an issue for most of the field. When it gets wet and soft, I think it's a huge advantage for the longer players. They're not going to get to some of those tighter areas off the tee. They'll have a big distance advantage. We'll see how well it dries up and drains overnight.

#Company

He's a guy all the girls like and all the guys like. That normally doesn't happen. If the girls like a guy, then the guys think he's a sissy. And guys usually like someone all the girls can't stand. He's a popular guy who has won here, so I think that endears him to everyone.

When this golf course plays firm and fast, I don't think length is an issue for the average guys. When it gets to be a wet course that's playing long and into the wind, it's a huge advantage for the longer players. They're going to have a big distance advantage. On a course that's 7,450 [yards], that's a huge advantage.

She's got a great talent. I can't think of a 16-year-old girl who can hit it like that. I'll go beyond that.

That's going to attract attention.
