Laura to card her lowest round on the LPGA  tour since  the 2005 Wendy’s Championship for Children;

“I hit a lot of fairways and that gives you a chance to get relatively close to the hole.”

 “I haven’t been holing the putts, but today I did.”

“The no bogeys part for me is the biggest key because that is what has been letting me down.” 

“It’s been in my mind and I know I can still play great golf, but it is all about the short game.”

 “My short game is really coming around and a day like this tells me that we are really doing the right things.”
