Jin Young Ko

Carlsbad, California

Q. Nice finish here at the Kia Classic off a win last week. How were you able to maintain that focus and stay at the top of the leaderboard?
JIN YOUNG KO: (Question translated.) I don't know. Just I would say I had lots putt -- I had missed lots of putt today, but still great round. (In Korean.)

Q. You're disappointed?
JIN YOUNG KO: Yeah, a little bit.

Q. About today?
JIN YOUNG KO: Today and the second round. But still, great finish. Looking forward next week.

Q. Why were you disappointed? Just because of the...
JIN YOUNG KO: My body condition was so bad before the tee off, so I...

Q. This morning?
JIN YOUNG KO: This morning. So I don't have like just confidence will be great round. I don't think about that. But still great round.

And I couldn't practice this morning because little injury my hand, so I'm happy. Still great round.

Q. Yeah. Even just not feeling confident and kind of feeling down, and also your hand, you mentioned earlier this week that you have some or were having some hand issues. Is it painful when you're playing?
JIN YOUNG KO: A little bit. A little bit. If hard to the ground like a little painful.

Q. The impact?
JIN YOUNG KO: Yeah, impact, after impact. But getting stronger.

Q. That's good.

Q. You said you're feeling good about next week?
JIN YOUNG KO: Yeah. I'm looking forward next week. I will find good memory of Dinah Shore, so I will be good.

Q. Yeah. You had a great shot on 17.

Q. Talk to us about that eagle.
JIN YOUNG KO: 63 meters to the hole and then I thought I need great spinning from third shot, so I will try another different Ping ball.

Q. That's it?
JIN YOUNG KO: Yeah. But really great impact, and then ball goes really lots of spinning, back spin, so hit the green and then one bounce and go in.

My God. I found, yeah.

Q. Had a great alternative.

Q. Awesome. Great round.
JIN YOUNG KO: Thank you.
