Q.  So you survived today, very tough day.  What were the conditions like for you today?

INTERPRETER:  Her condition today was all right, but she three‑putted the first green and then after that she kind of set her mind again back to start and got many birdies after that, yeah.

Q.  The wind definitely picked up mid round.  What’s that mental challenge of it starting off fairly calm and then picking up like this?

INTERPRETER:  Yesterday’s round was windy all the way through and so just hitting ‑‑ like playing yesterday’s round helped a lot get used to the wind, and practiced after yesterday’s round at the range when it was really windy, that also helped a lot today.

Q.  Your birdie on 18 puts you one stroke off the lead.  Were you aware of what was going on around you and what that birdie might mean?

INTERPRETER:  So she saw the scoreboard until the lead was at 9 under and then she just saw the board when she came up to the 18th green, so she was like, I must make this putt or else I’m going to regret it.

Q.  How long was the putt?  I didn’t get to see it, I’m sorry.  Four feet?  Okay.  So now you have to wait.  How do you pass the time?  What do you do right now?

INTERPRETER:  So she’s supposed to rush to the airport right now to catch our flight, but she’s going to wait around and watch the scores and if there’s any like possibilities, potential, she’s going to wait around or else we’re going to …

Q.  I definitely recommend you wait.  Perfect, thank you.
