“So I felt like I could just go out there and free-wheel it and make as many birdies as I could.”

“My goal was to shoot eight under and I was seven under. It was an incredible day. I’m very proud of myself.”

“I mean, she shot, what, seven under, that’s incredible, she played amazing, and she deserves to win.” 

Ayako Uehara, Japan, -3 under 69 today to climb into third place on her own at -13 under par, She said the key this week was her putting;

“Usually I’m reading myself, but this time I changed a little bit, and I had a good result.”
