Q. Best day of your life out there today?
HAOTONG LI: Yes. So far so good.

Q. Did you think that you had that kind of round in you?
HAOTONG LI: Not really, actually. But for some reason since hole No. 8, I just start holing everything.

Q. (Inaudible.)
HAOTONG LI: Feeling saw some. Unbelievable, actually. I can't explain. Means a lot.

Q. Was the difference putting?
HAOTONG LI: Yeah, I think just more mental thing. When I had bad shot, just always tell myself, hang on in there and try to hole putt. Glad to see I holed everything. So quite happy out there.
