Siam Country Club Pattaya, Old Course
Q. Finished with a 67 today. Bunch of birdies, two bogeys. Good to finish with a birdie, right?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yes.
Q. How much did you have to finish before play finished, play suspended?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Just my second shot into 18, so, yeah.
BROOKE HENDERSON: It was nice to kind of have some time to think about during the rain delay, and nice to come out and after that long break come out and make the birdie.
It was a good feeling, and made my day feel a lot better, too. Instead of 4-under, 5-under, and I feel like I climbed up closer to the leaders, which is always good.
Q. So you still had to make your approach in and then putt out?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah.
Q. Overall how do you feel you played today?
BROOKE HENDERSON: I feel like it was a solid day. I didn't really get off to the start I wanted to, but I kind of made up for it on the back nine.
I hit a lot of good shots. I don't think we had any like tap-in-and-goes, nothing really too easy, but it was solid. Definitely looking forward to the next two days.
Q. Good. You mentioned pre-tournament that this is a course that benefits longer hitters. Is that still the case now that we're two days in, we've had some rain, it's still pretty soft?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, I would say that they've actually moved up a couple tees on a few holes, but I would still say that it does have a little bit of an advantage to hit it long because you can still take some bunkers out of play, which makes the fairway a little bit wider on certain holes.
I was surprised that they've had 15 and 7 up both days. I feel like that's -- those holes are nice to make a couple birdies on.
Q. And I saw at least once we had a clip of you going driver off the deck out there. Which hole that was on? I don't remember off the top of my head.
BROOKE HENDERSON: 10.
Q. Okay. What's the mentality sitting there in the middle of the fairway and, you know, I think I can.
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, it wasn't a great lie, but it was a preferred lie, so I was like, maybe I could get something decent. It was still not ideal, but it was like, I'm going to rye it, and I was able to hit the green in two, which is always great.
Then I was able to two-putt for birdie. So 3-wood would definitely have been short of the green, so definitely glad I did it and glad it worked out.
