Q. Did you get a chance to practice the foursome together before this?
SUZANN PETTERSEN: We had played all the practice rounds together, and yesterday we did play each other's ball, but it's mostly just play your own game, don't get too much into each other, no.
Q. So Dale probably had this plan that you guys were going to be paired up together for some time?
SUZANN PETTERSEN: I think the pairings actually made themselves. After three practice rounds, you know who get along, like Paula and Laura, I mean, it's a perfect couple.
So I think, actually, the pairings did it themselves.
HELEN ALFREDSSON: And I think, also, when you play a similar game, you hit it the same distance, it's very difficult to play with somebody maybe much shorter than you are, so all of a sudden you are used to 7 irons and now you are standing with a 4 iron.
We, basically, hit the same clubs, so that helps, too, you don't feel so out of place. I would be here anyway, even if I would play my own ball, so that helps a lot, especially in foursome.
Q. Suzann, what makes Laura and Paula perfectly matched for each other? Can you amplify a little bit more on that?
SUZANN PETTERSEN: They just have the same kind of humor. I think Paula feels quite comfortable with Laura by her side, and I think it was the best that Paula hit the first tee shot. It would be easy to say, Laura, can you hit it, but I think Laura is a great team player and she makes everyone feel comfort.
Q. Suzann, have you played in the U.S. before?
SUZANN PETTERSEN: This year I have played three events.
Q. Have you played here before?
SUZANN PETTERSEN: Yes, three events.
MODERATOR: Any more questions? Laura, Alphie, thank you.
