What teammate can best handle the pressure of being paired with the finest player in the world and one of the greatest of all time, Woods And, if you think that is intimidating, try playing with Fred Funk. There's a lot of pressure playing with him, ... because he's always in the fairway and you don't want to screw him up. If I'm with Fred Couples and I hit it in the woods, 'Hey, go find it, buddy.' I'll do better next time.
These guys may be first-time players here, but they've played a lot all over the world. They come off the NIKE Tour and the European Tour, and they're tough. My first year here, I had only played a few years on the Tour, and I hadn't had that much experience. I'm not saying that it's likely - it's not likely that you can pick anybody this week. There are some guys playing well coming in, but it's hard to pick.''
