Q.  That was a nice hole‑in‑one out there today.  Remind me what hole that was on?

JING YAN:  No. 3, I think.

Q.  And you were on Beach or Creek?

JING YAN:  Beach. 

Q.  All right.  What happened there, can you tell us about it?

JING YAN:  Wind was blowing a little left to right, it was 151 to the hole.  I wanted to hit a 6‑iron, but then it was kind of in between clubs, so talked to my caddie and we went with a 7.  Just carried the bunker.  Hit the shot with a little bit of a draw.  Really liked the look of it, but I didn’t really think it was going to go in the hole.  Then my fellow players and caddies are like, “Oh, there’s a chance of it going in.”  I didn’t see it go in, but yeah, it went in and I was pretty happy about it.

Q.  How many other holes‑in‑one have you had?

JING YAN:  I’ve had four total, but this is my first one in a tournament.

Q.  First in competition, that’s got to be a really good feeling.

JING YAN:  Yeah.  

Q.  And then on top of that it’s the $20,000 to St. Jude, which is great on top of that as well.

JING YAN:  Yeah, I think that’s the best part.

Q.  It’s got to be fulfilling to see whenever our sponsors do something like that?

JING YAN:  Yeah.  I mean, it’s so awesome, like, to be able to help out the kids and, you know, just having it in a tournament with my first one, being able to do that just makes it way more special.
