Lizette Salas

Williamsburg, Virginia, USA

Kingsmill River Course

Quick Quotes

Q. Top 5 finish.


Q. And a birdie on the last hole.

LIZETTE SALAS: Yeah. Birdied 18 three out of four days so, you know, I rolled it well. I don't have any regrets. Obviously coming down the stretch I had a few hiccups, but overall, my game is there. It's coming back. I was within one at one point and I wasn't trying to focus on the leaderboard. Just trying to hit fairways and greens. Just didn't go my way today.

But that's golf and to be in contention again feels really good.

Q. How did you adjust? You've played this course so many times. How did you adjust to the different conditions this week?

LIZETTE SALAS: Yeah, it's a whole -- I feel like I had to learn the golf course again, and so got a fresh new yardage book and I had to do my homework all over again. I feel like it really did help.

And, again, with my new toys, mentality, just came in with a fresh start. And my competitiveness is coming back and I'm being aggressive. Just being my old self again felt really good.

Q. What is the biggest thing in the next couple days? It's a quick transition going out west, Wednesday start. Biggest thing in the next couple days to make sure you're ready not only rest-wise but for a match play tournament?

LIZETTE SALAS: Yeah, I think finishing well this week is going to give me good momentum going into next week, especially since it's match play, knowing that I could have a birdiefest, knowing I could roll it well, be aggressive, and play really good golf.

Just rest up and kind of learn the golf course quick next week. And John has been there before so really confident that my game can adapt to any golf course.

Q. Is match play good or maybe hindering the week before a major?

LIZETTE SALAS: That's a great question. I feel like it's a good test going into a major. You know, you'll see who has the strong mental game. I think when it comes to match play it's a lot of mental and going into a major again it's all mental. So I think it's good practice.

Again, it's your game versus another person's game, and when you go to the Open it's your game versus the golf course. So different mentality, but I think they can go hand in hand.
