Q. You fought hard out there today, got yourself back to 6-under. Can you share your thoughts overall on your round today?
ANNA NORDQVIST: Yeah, I got off to a terrible start, left myself up in the fairway bunker. I was just quite shocked actually the first couple holes how quick the greens were.
I didn't think I hit a bad putt from there behind the green on 1, and it just kept rolling and rolling and rolling and rolling. I don't know if it was the wind that dried them up, but some of the putts were lightning fast out there. I'm proud of myself, just kept fighting.
I don't think it was necessarily that easy out there today, and certainly been doing a lot of good things this week, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow.
Q. You touched on it with the greens, but how did the course play today and how did it differ from days 1 and 2?
ANNA NORDQVIST: The winds were quite strong. We got a little bit of gusts there yesterday, but s feel like starting out the gusts were pretty good there the first -- where you can really feel them, the first 10, 12 holes.
I think I got a little bit lucky on 13 because I had a huge gust and that 5-iron flew really funny in the air and I think it just knocked it all down.
You know, I certainly didn't think there was a ton of easy pins out there. Just proud of myself for doing my best.
Q. You fought hard, finished strong; what are you going to take from this round into tomorrow on Sunday?
ANNA NORDQVIST: I mean, all I can do is my best. Today even if I didn't get off to a good start, I made a couple good birdies at the end. Just trying to hit good shots.
Today I ended up being in some positions where the putts were lightning fast, so probably still try to put myself in the right positions going into the greens.
