Q. Here with Carlota Ciganda, another solid round. Put you at 8-under, just three back heading into the weekend. I mean, how good are you feeling about a round like that, especially on a golf course that had some really tricky pins today?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, I mean, I think 4-under, it's always good in a major championship. I do think that the pins were a little trickier today. I thought I was very patient out there.
Again, hit lots of greens, which I think it's key in this course to give yourself birdie chances. Made a few.
Played really good the par-5s, and, yeah, happy with the 4-under at the end.
Q. How do you manage the pin positions? There are a lot of slopes on the greens. Are you just playing to different quadrants of the green?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, we have a good strategy. I think my caddie is great with that, so I just try to listen to him. I try to hit it where he tells me.
Very comfortable with the numbers and all the lines he's telling me. So, yeah, I think just need good prep this course, especially some of those back pins.
Yeah, I mean, try your best.
Q. Again in contention in a major championship. What have you learned in the past you'll take with you into the weekend?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: You have to be patient out there. I think I have a low round in me, so I think I have to keep playing the same, try to hit greens, do the same, and if I can make a few more putts, I think I have a low one in me.
Q. What's the key to get that low number, do you think?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: I mean, just stay in the present, patient, and enjoy the moment.
Q. And final question: Chasing heading into the weekend. Are you much more of a chaser rather than a leader?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, I don't mind chasing and coming from behind. Yeah, I don't mind that at all.
