"It's very difficult, because it's very hard to get any sort of rhythm in your golf swing in your game, because you might go four or five holes without hitting a driver," Jones said after his team's 2-under 70. "You might go a few holes without having a putt. It feels like a very stop-start game,"
The Aussies, who finished T-3 together in 2008, both admitted to feeling pressure to perform for the other.
"There's a lot of stress and you don't want to hit poor shots for your partner," Jones said. "So it's a difficult game for everybody, but, you know, (Richard)'s a good guy and he doesn't kick a man when he's down."
Green believes their friendship keeps things light.
"I think playing in this format with a friend and somebody that you get along with very well and have a lot of respect for their game, that's the way to play this game very well," he said.
