It will be my first tournament back in Europe after the Ryder Cup and I think it will be very special playing with some of my Ryder Cup colleagues and in front of our loyal home crowd.
I'm very pleased with who we got, ... You can't count the British Open, so its the third best field in Europe this year.
From losing a point after 16 to winning 17 with a birdie and 18 with a par, two of the most difficult, dramatic holes out here, from two rookies was just unbelievable.
I would love to win this thing, ... It doesn't happen very often anymore and it gets harder all the time.
Officially I can say the chances are 75-25 - personally I feel its higher than that.
It's been a fantastic start by my guys. They've made some putts and I couldn't ask for anything more.
The economic situation in Germany and Europe is difficult.
It's an issue. We will meet with European tour officials in London next week to discuss the problem, among others.
