I'm excited to play".
"I loved his putt on 17". Still, as I said yesterday, win or 15th, this was a great week for him.

Casey rallied from five shots behind. I know that was a long putt but I was trying to leave it below the hole.
Two shots behind going to the back nine, with Casey running out of birdie chances, Woods failed to birdie both par 5s. "I was kind of getting a little frustrated, seeing the scores were decent". Next week: Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
