Q. You had a little bit of a rain interruption. Tell me about it.
ADITI ASHOK: Yeah, I saw the other groups going ahead, so we didn't know where to stop or go and everyone kept playing so I played, too. I hit one of the best shots during the rain, actually. I hit like a 9-iron to five feet. I missed the putt.
Q. What hole was that on?
ADITI ASHOK: That was on the par-5, the third hole. After that it got really soft, so whatever irons or wedges I had, I was just trying to go straight at the pin pretty much, and I think that helped make a few birdies towards the end after the rain.
PAJAREE ANANNARUKARN: Yeah, just kind of hanging in there. It was tough conditions, but really glad we played. We really played solid golf today.
Q. You've now played well in both formats. Do you have a preference?
ADITI ASHOK: Not really. I think both are equally nerve-racking because sometimes -- yesterday's format is difficult, but sometimes it feels easy because there's no choice. No matter what happens you have to play the next shot; whereas here sometimes you see the other person and you kind of -- it changes your approach a little bit.
I think both are equally very difficult.
But yeah, we've enjoyed both. We're playing good, so we're happy.
Q. When you're playing alternate-shot, obviously you're trying to play off of your partner's tee shots or approach shots. When you're playing your own ball you can be a little more aggressive. Did you bring that mindset in today?
PAJAREE ANANNARUKARN: Definitely, yes. That's the only thing that we changed throughout the day. I mean, if we can attack the pin, if she already hit on the green, then yeah, we can be more aggressive.
ADITI ASHOK: Exactly. That's what we were trying to figure out. Like most of the time it was me just hitting the green so she has a green light and she can go straight at it.
PAJAREE ANANNARUKARN: Then she made the putt. I don't even have to putt.
ADITI ASHOK: Yeah. Sometimes I didn't have to make the putt, sometimes she didn't have to, but she hit a lot of close one. She's been hitting it close all day. It's just the front nine we missed a couple putts, but back nine we really hit it close and made a few.
Q. Looks like you may be in the final group tomorrow. How does that feel?
ADITI ASHOK: Yeah, we have no expectations, obviously. We're just trying to enjoy each day, each hole and just combine well. Yeah, we're doing good, but we're just going to keep doing the same thing.
PAJAREE ANANNARUKARN: And the most important thing, just enjoy it.
