Brooke Henderson

San Francisco, California, USA

The Olympic Club

Quick Quotes

THE MODERATOR: Brooke Henderson, 3-under. Brooke, coming into today people didn't know there would be red numbers like this. Talk about how the course played and how you were able to do so well.

BROOKE HENDERSON: They moved up a lot of tees, which was really nice. Gave some more birdie looks than everybody was expecting. I feel like Brit and I, we capitalized on those quite a bit. Made a lot of birdies, which was fun.

The course was still super challenging. So if you didn't make the fairway, it was hard to make par, so I think the next three days will be challenging and interesting.

Q. Earlier in the week, you talked about patience being key. Did you feel you were patient out there today?

BROOKE HENDERSON: I did. I birdied the 1st hole, which was really nice, but I made an incredible bogey on the 2nd hole, so I didn't know how the day was going to go.

I just tried to stay smart and stay calm, and I hit a lot of fairways, which I think you have to do here, and a lot of greens.

Q. You mentioned at the start of the week that chasing pars might be the strategy. At what point of the round did you realize those birdies were available to you and you could be more aggressive?

BROOKE HENDERSON: Like I mentioned, they moved a lot of tees up. So when I saw that, I was like, Wow, as long as you hit the fairway you're going to have a short iron in. Like I said, just try to take advantage of some of those holes that were moved up, and then once you start playing well and start making some birdies, then you get a little bit more confident. Some of tougher holes look a little easier.
