Southern Pines, North Carolina, USA
Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club
Q. How would you describe your round today?
LEONA MAGUIRE: Yeah, didn't get off to the best of starts but tried to stay really patient. I knew everybody was kind of struggling out there. I knew it wasn't going to be easy out there. A lot of the pins were tucked and you couldn't make a lot of birdies. It was just trying to limit the amount of mistakes really.
Q. How did the course play today compared to the first three weeks?
LEONA MAGUIRE: I think it was a little firmer today and it was definitely set up a little bit tougher. There was definitely a little bit more breeze, pins were a little trickier today. Overall that's reflected in the scores. You couldn't get close to a lot of the pins today, so you just had to take your chances when you got them.
Q. What can you take away from this weekend moving forward?
LEONA MAGUIRE: It's my first top 10 at a U.S. Open, first cut I've made at a U.S. Open, so that's big progress for me, and really enjoyed the week, really enjoyed being back in North Carolina, so overall it's been a great week.
