After a fantastic Thursday at Turnberry we take a look at some of the best quotes from the interview room on day 1. “I’m going to play in this tournament until I’m 60 because I love it. The atmosphere, the fans, the crowd, the stands, the unusual accommodation you end up with sometimes. I wouldn’t want a steady diet of it, just like links golf. But it’s fun. The beer is very tasty. All sorts of reason” Mark Calcavecchia explains his love for the Open and also gives an insight into his week… “There’s 15 of us over in the Duel in the Sun pub having bar food and drinking pints, and you never see guys in the States. If you do it’s by accident. So everybody sits around and yuks it up. It’s almost like I’ve become better friends with Lucas Glover, Boo Weekley and Matt Kuchar in the last three days than I have back at home.” “He’s going to be a legend forever. Tom Watson is one of the guys you still have to look at. He’s a legend here with us, and we have to feel very proud to play with him.” Miguel Angel Jimenez sums up his thoughts on Tom Watson. “Right now it’s just stretching. I mean if they rub on it anymore I’m going to feel like a piece of gingerbread.” John Daly explains his back problems. “We’ve already talked about ideal scenarios. Coming down 18 with a two shot lead and two putting for the Championship. Then saying to one of the boys you can do the winner’s speech I’m off.” Ross Fisher could have a difficult decision to make if his wife gives birth at the weekend.
