Brooke Matthews

Augusta, Georgia, USA

Quick Quotes

Q. How excited are you to be here this week?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: I'm so excited. It's a dream come true, not to just play Augusta, but to play with all these amazing golfers. I'm just honored.

Q. What are your goals or expectations for the week?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Obviously, you want to play well but just to enjoy it. I have my coach on the bag, and so we are just going to have a good time, try to play some good golf and really just soak in the experience.

Q. What are you most looking forward to about this week?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: I mean, obviously playing Augusta, right? It's a dream that every kid has growing up, even if you're not a golfer. So just soaking in every single moment of it, I'm so excited.

Q. Did you get any advice from Maria Fassi or Dylan Kim who were here two years ago?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: They basically told me just to enjoy it. Like, "You know how to play golf. Just get your plan and just stick to it and trust it." They are both really good friends of mine and so I'm just so happy to have role models like them.

Q. Did they give you any kind of like confidence boost or mantra or anything for this week?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, they are always trying to pump me up. They are such good girls.

Q. What are the mantras?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Just trust it. Just trust it. That's a big thing.

Q. You being a pretty long hitter, how does the course, Champions Retreat in particular, set up for you from what you've seen?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: I think it sets up really well. Obviously you have to hit it straight but there's a little room off the tee either way but I think just using my power, that's what I'm going to do. That's my plan. We're just going to see how it goes.

Q. You said you have your coach on your bag, who is that?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Phillip Walker. He's been my coach since I was 12 years old.

Q. Has he caddied for you in amateur events?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Sometimes. He caddied for me when I played in the LPGA event in northwest Arkansas, so we did well and we are trying to do it again.

Q. Two years ago when Maria was in contention, where were you when you watched that?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: I was in Fayetteville on the couch watching, living and dying by every shot. It was awesome.

Q. With the team or by yourself?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Some of my teammates, yeah.

Q. Were you screaming at the TV?

BROOKE MATTHEWS: It was so exciting.

Q. Maybe it will be you this time.

BROOKE MATTHEWS: Hopefully. We'll see. Thank you.
