Lake Merced Country Club
Q. All right, take me through today. I know a little bit bumpy there on the front nine, but nine straight pars on the back nine is still a success. Take me throughout third day.
JENNIFER KUPCHO: Yeah, I played really well. Honestly struggled a little bit more on the back. Made a lot of pars, not very many good birdie opportunities.
Q. What will you work on heading into tomorrow after what you were able to do today?
JENNIFER KUPCHO: I think just putt and go back and relax, get some rest. It's been a long four weeks, so just try and finish it off tomorrow.
Q. I was going to say, now that we have this LPGA Tour schedule of just back to back to back, how difficult is it to sometimes just take some time for yourself and mentally reset?
JENNIFER KUPCHO: It's hard, especially, I mean, for me I haven't seen any of the courses. Luckily I've seen next week, but it's also been redone a little bit.
So I think that's the hardest thing for me. I want to get to know the course but I also want to take time off, so trying to balance that is hard.
Q. How did you plan for Lake Merced? Had you played this course before this week?
JENNIFER KUPCHO: No, I didn't. This is the first time here, and I just came out and did my normal. I just do nine, nine and try and learn the best I can. I mean, even during the first, second round still trying to remember what hole is what.
Q. Still, this is a difficult course. Being able to learn quick I feel like is going to be a challenge. For you, not a lot of people have run away with it the third round. You're still just two shots back. What will it take for you to keep climbing up the leaderboard?
JENNIFER KUPCHO: Just go out and hit a bunch of good shots. I'm sure the pins will be tucked a little bit tomorrow, so just playing smart golf and seeing if I can roll a couple in.
