Quotes from Leaders
“This is the first time in a USGA tournament. And coming to the tournament, I didn’t even think about winning because this is the first time for me. I would like more experience with the USGA, LPGA. But I’m trying to enjoy this tournament. That’s why I am just more comfortable; don’t even think about the winning, I just enjoy the play. That’s why it happened today.”
Sung Hyun Park

“My driving wasn’t very good today. But I made some good saves. And I’m happy about my round, looking forward to the weekend.”
-Amy Yang
