Michelle Wie West

Olympia Fields, Illinois

Q. The last few holes, you played pretty well, but you couldn't get the birdie putts to drop but then you made that chip-in for birdie.
MICHELLE WIE: I know, that was it all day. I did not know putts could lip out at some speeds that I was hitting it. I hit some great putts. Just, you know, didn't go in. You have those days. But I'm excited for the weekend.

Q. Tell us about the chip-in. Did you see on the way it was going to be close?
MICHELLE WIE: Yeah, I hit it in the left bunker and then I kind of hit the lip of the bunker and then I hit the wood in and I pulled the wood and I was in a situation where I didn't want to be in. I kind of hit a flop shot and kind of worked out perfectly.

Q. How far were you on that?
MICHELLE WIE: I was way left of the green. So I don't know, I was like 20 yards left.

Q. And you changed clubs with your second shot on 9. What were you between?
MICHELLE WIE: I just had a really bad lie. You know, just wanted to make sure I got it out there.

Q. What did you hit? You can't remember?
MICHELLE WIE: I hit an 11-wood. (Laughter).

Q. Is this the first time you've ever had an 11-wood in the bag?
MICHELLE WIE: I love it.

Q. What do you love about it?
MICHELLE WIE: It's so easy to hit. It's easy to hit than a played 5-iron, let me tell you that.

Q. How far do you carry?
MICHELLE WIE: Same as my 5-iron.

Q. Which is?

Q. And despite the bogey on 9, your position, what do you think?
MICHELLE WIE: Yeah, I played great today. I just missed so many putts. It was one of those days where I could have shot 63 easily. But I played myself in good position and I'm just going to try my hardest this weekend.

Q. Your buddy, Danielle Kang, is having a good tournament.
MICHELLE WIE: Yeah, I saw that.

Q. Can you talk about how she's been playing of late?
MICHELLE WIE: Yeah, she's playing great. I think she's been striking the ball really solidly. She's always been a solid putter, and you know, she just believes in herself. It was fun to watch her on TV this morning. It gave me some motivation this afternoon. I was trying to make some birdies coming in to try to get paired with her. Fell short a little bit, but hopefully on Sunday.
