“When I make that shot my caddie is like, Oh, yeah, Mo.”
“Today was kind of a pretty rough day for me with not a very good start and trying to come back.”
“I just try to play my game and be patient out there.”
Jin was in a South Korean grouping, and enjoyed the experience, looking for her maiden LPGA tour win. With every win on the KLPGA she puts an exclamation mark on the bag, there is eleven there at the moment;
“I played with Inbee and Eun Hee, so she’s really famous in LPGA. But she’s great, so I didn’t get nervous.”

“I need more, I need every time motivation, so one by one, one, one.”
Inbee Park, South Korea, holds third place on her own at -7 under par, a third round -2 under 69 leaving her two shots off the pace, as she chases the world number one ranking.
