King Abdullah Economic City, Saudi Arabia
Royal Greens Golf & Country Club
Q. Can you tell us what does it mean and how do you feel coming back again here?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: It's a great place. I played here last time, last year, the first time. I really liked it. The course is great. It's a great tournament, great setup. The way they treat us, I think it's great that they are doing this for women and to see this tournament a couple years ago grow to be the first event for women, I think it's really big.
I'm really happy to be part of it and to help grow women's golf and sports here in Saudi.
Q. Brilliant. Obviously, it's going to be a big year for you and the other ladies here at the Ladies European Tour this year. It's a big year with big events and big prize money. What does that mean to you as well?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: I think it's great to see all the sports are supporting the Ladies European Tour, especially here in Saudi with, I think, six events of the team series. It's important for the Ladies European Tour that they play here because the last three years they didn't have many events. I think it's really nice to see the schedule being bigger and having more opportunities to play, more money, and I'm just happy to be part of it.
Q. In terms of the tournament, what are you going to do different this year?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: It's a great course. I think you just have to be very committed to your shots. It's going to be very windy. It's going to be tricky, this golf course, and you have to be very patient out there. Try your best. I think the winning score will be a little higher this year than last.
