Albane Valenzuela

West Point, Mississippi

Q. Another one down; talk about how you're feeling about your game.
ALBANE VALENZUELA: Yeah, I played really solid today. I shot 6-under, bogey-free round, so I could not ask for more. I really stuck to my game plan, and I think as the week went by I started hitting better shots and rolling the putts better. And great chemistry with my brother. I think as days go by, we also learn more about the game, the course, and just how I feel this week.

Q. How does he help you out there?
ALBANE VALENZUELA: Oh, he's amazing. He knows that I have to get the towel at the right time, and I tell him, I think this putt is going to turn this way. He just checks my line on the putt, and just gives me a lot of confidence. He tells me to have the game, stay super relaxed, and we laugh a lot on the course, and he tells me a lot of stupid things. We just have fun.

Q. Yesterday two rounds, today you're going to actually have a little bit of a rest this afternoon. What's your plan?
ALBANE VALENZUELA: Just maybe a few putts and then go back to my room. I have some homework to do. I'm still in school. Andrea will be in the same basket.

But I won't do too much. I'll try to relax and actually enjoy the afternoon. It's kind of nice.

Q. What's your confidence level right now?
ALBANE VALENZUELA: Pretty good. I think I really take it day by day, but I'm really confident with my game. I feel more mature as a player compared to 2017, and I wasn't necessarily playing my best golf earlier in the week, but I just relied object my experience, and I think that gave me more success on the course. Hopefully it will continue.

Q. You mentioned 2017. What from that experience could you take and learn from?
ALBANE VALENZUELA: Just it's a long day. It's definitely like a long tournament, and I just need to stay very patient. You can't really think too much ahead. Anything can happen. Yesterday I was 3-down after three holes and managed to come back. I was only up on my last hole. It could have happened on the other side. I could also be 3-up and then lose the match. You've just got to stay shot by shot, hole by hole.
