"I was looking forward to this Presidents Cup for a very long time, and I didn't expect all the presidents to be there," Schwartzel said. "Just to get to meet them was a dream come true for me. Then to hit that first tee shot with the wind pumping off the right was quite intimidating."
"If these fairways get firm (over the weekend), you're really going to have to try to keep it in the fairway," Schwartzel said. "If you're missing fairways, with the greens, you're going to miss a lot of greens, you're going to struggle. So if you want to move forward and win this golf tournament, I think all parts of your game are going to have to be in top form."
