Talk about your round today.

I really hit the ball well all day. I felt a little bit better on the back nine Ė I started making more putts.

 

Iím playing well, and not only that, Iím scoring well. I really have no weaknesses right now, and hopefully that will put some pressure on my opponents.

 

In match play, itís quite unpredictable. Itís not like stroke play where youíre in control of your score. Youíve really got to take it match by match, and just try to be consistent.

 

Howís the course?

Itís very challenging. You need a lot of blind trust here because the bunkers are so well placed off the tees. Even on the greens, there are little mounds and subtle slopes you canít really see.

 

How did your great finish in the Womenís Open help?

The main thing was confidence. Itís a great confidence builder.
