Q. Megan Khang, solid round pretty much all around today. What were your thoughts?
MEGAN KHANG: I thought I was really having a lot more exploring today than I did in the past couple days. There were a couple back the greens that I saw that I wasn't thrilled about. Couple fronts I didn't want to deal with.
But, you know, you got to do what you got to do. Just kind of deal with what the task at hand, and Jack and I did a pretty good job of that. You know, kind of really took on the challenge that the USGA put on today.
Q. A lot of scrambling today? Was the golf course different today? What was the situation?
MEGAN KHANG: I mean, given -- it was a little tough out there. (Crowd noise.)
Anyway, yeah, no, I totally forgot the question.
Q. Some scrambling today? How did the golf course play? Any different, if at all, or setup or anything like that?
MEGAN KHANG: I mean, today I think the wind was definitely blowing a lot more today. It probably helped dry out the course a little more than we were playing the past two days.
Other than that, I mean, you can obviously tell greens are firming up, getting faster. You know, you got to take that into consideration, just a little more challenging with the wind, and trying to play the release. Sometimes it's not going to go and sometimes it's just going to take off.
So there is definitely room for a little error today. Always happy to get out with a 1-under given the conditions.
Q. How do you feel about your position for tomorrow?
MEGAN KHANG: I don't actually know where I am on the leaderboard, so I know I'm chasing.
MEGAN KHANG: Definitely going to go out there and stick to the same routine and try to be aggressive when I can. Probably sound like a broken record, but just stick to myself and try not to get ahead of myself.
Q. Good result in the U.S. Open last year. Anything you take from that to this experience this week?
MEGAN KHANG: Definitely a lot of staying patient out there. Olympic was a super tough golf course. I mean, it was super windy there, it was cooler, greens were super undulated. Even then like you kind of just had to accept some holes you're going to par and some holes you can make birdie.
So that same mentality I'm trying to take in not just to majors, but to all my other tournaments. Just a lesson I've learn and I'm trying to keep carrying.
