Quick Quotes

DOUG MILNE: Great start. 13-under. Just a few comments about how well you played off of each other today.

VIJAY SINGH: It was -- I wasn't hitting the driver as good. But when I didn't, he came in. He putted really great. And I putted, made one or two long ones. For me it was good too. We kind of ham-and-egged really well. After 9 hole, I told him let's finish 12, we'll be happy with 12. And we got one better than that.

DOUG MILNE: Qass, your thoughts on how you played?

QASS SINGH: I played good, just like he said. When I didn't hit it good, he hit it good; and when I hit it good, it worked out all right. We got almost in a lot of trouble in No. 9, but we got away there. So it was nice.

DOUG MILNE: And this last one, how special, obviously, it's a unique event, you get a lot of time with family. How liberating and relaxing is it to come out here and have fun?

VIJAY SINGH: We want to have fun, at the same time we want to compete. It's fun, plus pressure fun. It's always nice to spend time with your son because you don't get to spend three, four days of playing golf and hanging out together when you're at home.

This is a great time to know each other a little bit better. It's good. I enjoy this moment. I enjoyed every year I played over here. It's been fun.

Q. (Off microphone)?

QASS SINGH: I don't think so. I think it was 3rd of 4th.

VIJAY SINGH: We've finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, but never 1. So hopefully this is the week.

Q. (Indiscernible) what would it mean to finally?

VIJAY SINGH: It would be a special occasion to win. It would be one of the biggest highlights in my career, to win with him.

QASS SINGH: This is already the best week of the year. That'd just make it even sweeter.

Q. How long out do you start preparing?

VIJAY SINGH: I don't know. I started preparing last week. But I've been practicing, it's a constant work at it.

Q. (Indiscernible) for every year.

VIJAY SINGH: It is. I was looking forward to playing this, and Alastair held our invitation till pretty late, and I had to say what the heck is going on, but he did give it to me.

Q. Vijay, had the playing of playing with you in the Pro Am, had a great time. I was blown away by your shoe choice here. Can you run us through what you're wearing here? Is this a golf shoe? What are those?

VIJAY SINGH: It's HOKA, HOKA trail shoes. I have a problem with my foot, and I cannot really play with anything else that hurts. So this is --

Q. They're a hiking shoe?

VIJAY SINGH: Running shoes.

Q. No slippage?

VIJAY SINGH: No slippage, and it feels good. I mean, it hurts, but it feels better than golf shoes. Thank you.
