Carnoustie, Angus, Scotland, UK
THE MODERATOR: Okay, delighted to be joined by Brooke Henderson. That was 2-under 70 takes you to 6-under over all -- if you want, you can just take your mask off if that's easier -- or you want to keep your mask on? Okay.
Q. Nice start, maybe not the finish you were hoping for, but would you walk us through your round and how do you feel going through tomorrow?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Did a lot of good things today which is really nice. You know, the closing holes are definitely the toughest holes out here and especially when it started raining, it got a little bit trickier.
But I'm happy how I played today and how I battled coming in. Made a couple up-and-down saves on 16 and 18, hopefully make a lot of birdies tomorrow and hit good shots and see what happens.
Q. Similar game plan for what happens in tomorrow's final round?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Definitely depends on what the weather is doing and the conditions of the golf course. It's changing all the time so you have to adapt. I feel like for the most part we are hitting quality shots and our game plan is pretty solid. Excited to tee and up tomorrow and hopefully good things can happen.
Q. Are you using a different putter this week from last few weeks, and can you give us -- looks like you're putting pretty well this week?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, the putter feels good. It is different. It's actually the putter I won Hawai'i with back in 2018, so a long time ago. I really like it. I decided to go back to the blade and I feel like on these types of greens it works really well, and I just tried to keep things pretty simple and I feel like so far we have read the greens pretty well.
THE MODERATOR: Thanks, everyone and Brooke, appreciate your time coming in.
