Q. All right, here with Carlota Ciganda after her final round at the DIO Implant LA Open. What were the biggest takeaways for you from this week? You had a couple really great rounds.
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, very happy with the weekend. Obviously yesterday 8-under and today 5-under. I started really good again today. I was 7-under after ten holes.
Then, I mean, 11, 12, 13 I think they are the toughest holes out here with the wind. Made a couple bogeys.
Miss a short putt on 13 so I was a little bit (indiscernible) for the round because then I had a couple par-5s and I lost a little bit of momentum there
I mean, overall I'm happy. I know I have the game to win out here and I'm excited for the year, for the next tournament, and excited to keep working and keep improving
Q. How happy are you, especially that this course seemed to be pretty tough out here?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, I mean, I think it's tricky. The front nine, it's a little easier because you have shorter clubs, lots of wedges, the par-5 is reachable.
Then the back nine, as I said, 11 to 13, they are the toughest holes with the wind. Then I don't think it's easy to make putts out here.
I think everyone is struggling making putts and the speed, and you can miss a couple short ones. So I think it's a course that you need a lot of patience out here. It's good test.
Q. Your next event is Chevron you said. So getting ready for a major, where is your game and what are the things you'll do to prepare for that first major of the year?
CARLOTA CIGANDA: Yeah, obviously very excited for the first major. Going to the Masters next week for a few days, so I'll be learning, and, yeah, watching all the players.
And then I have a week in Scottsdale to practice before going to Houston. Yeah, just keep working on what I've been doing, and, yeah, hopefully a win is soon to come.
