EE: Sergio [Garc�a] pops his head in. Sergio's quite a busybody.
SI: Should the Big Four really be the Big Five?
EE: It rolls off the tongue better. We have the big five in South Africa with the lion, the leopard, the elephant, the rhino and the hippo.
SI: Is there a tiger in there?
EE: No. Too bad, the tiger's not included.
SI: Goosen would be the rhino?
EE: Maybe. Retief would be the quieter guy who packs a punch.
SI: Was Jos Vantisphout's sports-psychology work with Goosen at the 2001 U.S. Open the turning point of his career?
EE: Definitely. The year before, he was really close to doing good stuff in Europe and finished very high on the Order of Merit. Jos has had a huge impact on Retief's life and his golf. He has given him more belief in his abilities.
SI: What was it like being together in the final twosome of last year's U.S. Open?
