Alice Duan

Kingston Springs, Tennessee

Q. You had a good start on the front nine, bogey-free.
ALICE DUAN: Yeah, it was a good start. Kind of like frazzled on the first hole because my caddie and I both forgot to get pin sheets, so I sent him running back like on the first fairway. But it was good. Hit a lot of good shots and had a couple opportunities, so yeah. Did pretty well.

Q. Talk about the back nine.
ALICE DUAN: Back nine, I think like our pace kind of changed a little bit. I like both sides, so it's not like I like one side better than the other, but I guess we kind of had some like timing issues, so I was trying to hurry. But other than that, yeah, it was really good. It's a nice course.

Q. How did the course play today?
ALICE DUAN: I think it was pretty fair. There were a couple of pin positions that were like gettable, especially on the par-5s. They were pretty friendly positions. Yeah, I think the greens were a little faster than I expected on the front and then they slowed down on the back, but other than that, yeah, it was good.

Q. You played in the Four-Ball earlier this year --
ALICE DUAN: Yeah, I did.

Q. Did that experience help you coming into this week?
ALICE DUAN: Yeah, it definitely did with pace of play because I know you guys are really strict about that, so yeah. And my sister played that event with me, and so she's like texting me this morning -- she woke up at like 3:00 this morning her time to say good luck and stuff. Yeah, really supportive, and I think it really helped me to prepare for this.

Q. And you're in good position after the first day of stroke play. What's your mindset going into tomorrow?
ALICE DUAN: Tomorrow, same thing. Not much is going to change. Just kind of not really trying to force anything because I know the course is kind of tough, so just taking my opportunities when I can and being patient otherwise.
