“Those were all wrong reads. But I’m hitting it good, putting it good.”
”It’s 18 holes, one shot at a time, one putt at a time, we will see what happens at the end of the day.”
Lydia knows she could always have played better, well almost.The World number two is looking to get the #1 spot back;
“I think every round, unless I shoot 18-under par, I’m probably going to say, hey, I knew it could have been better.”
”Overall I played really solid today, so I’m happy with the way I’m hitting it and the way I’m putting it.”
“But no, I’m playing solid, and that’s the mind-set I’ve got to have and just have fun out there tomorrow.”
“It’s been a great crowd, lots of Korean fans out here, Canadian, New Zealanders and I’m sure from everywhere.”
”It’s great to see a lot of people out here and I think they get really excited when we play well, too.”
Alison Lee is in third place at -10 under par, a marvelous -6 under par 66 elevating her up the leaderboard to occupy third on her own.
Alison has thrown down the gauntlet, saying to her opponents;
”I’m just going to play aggressively, I’ve been in contention a couple of times but it was a learning experience.”
“I just need to be confident and hit good shots, stay positive. Not expect too much and not get ahead of myself.”
