So Yeon Ryu

Charleston, South Carolina

Q. Started out with a double and made a comeback. Your history as a past champion, has that helped you when you started out with a double and said, I can still do this?
SO YEON RYU: Yes, for sure. I know it's a shame I made a double at the 2nd yesterday as well, and today I made a double at the 1st hole, and then I finished even, even starting with the double bogey. Then when I made a double bogey, I was like I had the same start yesterday, but I fought back. So I thought I was going to be able to do it.

Plus, having the Major trophy, especially the U.S. Women's Open trophy under my belt, makes things easier because it definitely gave me a lot confidence, and I kept talking to myself, you know, if I've done it once, I can do it for the future again.

Q. When you made the two birdies on the back side, did you feel like there were a couple more to take you closer?
SO YEON RYU: Actually, my putting was quite great today. I would say my iron shot was quite great as well. I was sort of hoping for like I was going to hop on the birdie train.

But first of all, I was quite disappointed. Could have made the eagle at the 15. I thought I made it, but I couldn't make it. Most likely, I think I'm going to finish in the top five, and it's going to be my first top five finish this season. So this tournament gives me a lot of confidence.

Q. Lee6 is in the lead right now. How close are you with her?
SO YEON RYU: Well, I never really grew up with her, but Jeongeun and I have the same management company. That's how I started to hang out with her. She's such a sweet lady. She's so ready to learn everything about LPGA.

Actually, a lot of people think, if you played the other tour before, you're not really a rookie. I think that's not true. I've done it before. I know I had experience to play other tour before I joined this Tour, but this Tour is a whole lot different experience. You better speak English. You better learn so many different cultures.

So looking at her as a rookie to play this tournament so well, I'm really proud of her as a fellow competitor and same country girl as well. I'm hoping she's going to finish strong.
