Q. Patty, the morning couldn't have gone much worse for you, I guess. What have you been able to say to the players to try to get them in a positive frame of mind for this afternoon?
PATTY SHEEHAN: I really didn't have to say much of anything. Typically we're in this position after the first round. I don't know what it is, but we don't seem to get out of the blocks very fast. We always have to play catch-up in the Solheim Cup. Everybody is ready to go this afternoon. Nobody is down. Everybody seems to be in good spirits still. We just have to play catch-up golf once again.
Q. How important was it to get at least half a point out of that first session?
PATTY SHEEHAN: I think it's big. Last year we got one point. This year we're just a half point worse than last year. Like I said, it seems to be like this every year. We just have to hang in there.
Q. You've got some good support here on the first tee, haven't you? I hear they have to go home, the girls tomorrow. Is that right?
PATTY SHEEHAN: Yeah. I'm kind of upset that the Junior Solheim girls have to go home. They've been great fun to have around, and they're just -- they give us a little boost every day.
Q. It's getting a little bit noisy here, Patty. Thanks for talking to us.
PATTY SHEEHAN: That's the way it is. I love it. Thank you.
