Ally Ewing

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Shadow Creek

Quick Quotes

Q. Here with a past champ of this match play event, Ally Ewing. Two wins in two days. How was the second day for you?

ALLY EWING: Yeah, good. I think today I put together better golf than I did yesterday, but all together was able to get two wins here in these two matches. Certainly makes me feel like I've got a little bit of momentum for tomorrow.

Good experiences, obviously, from this golf course, but it's so demanding. Just because you've played well here once doesn't mean anything. It still takes the one-shot-at-a-time mentality to go get your work done.

Q. What did you take away from the win yesterday?

ALLY EWING: Just kind of I battled -- I didn't play that great, but I spoke in our press conference at the beginning of the week, like my Sundays in stroke play the last few weeks have kind of really gotten too process and I haven't turned on that competitor mentality that I always have, and match play brings that out in me, so just finding a way. I think that's the thing in match play; no matter what you have, you just go compete with it and grind it out until the very end. That's what I did the first match, and today, as well, just put together -- I made more birdies today, which always helps, but happy with my two wins.

Q. You went 1-up at the turn today and really never let go. Is it something about these back nine holes that kind of lets you either be more aggressive, or how do you find these back nine holes?

ALLY EWING: Yeah, I think they're challenging. I wouldn't say that I mentally have any sort of different mentality or feel like I can be more aggressive. I definitely hit some really good shots, and I think you just try to apply as much pressure as you can, whether you're hitting first or whether you're putting first.

That first one in is kind of always a big deal. When you have the opportunity to kind of put the pedal down, I think that's what you really have to try to do, and match play can be -- if you sit around and wait for it, that's when it can bite you. I've tried to just kind of -- I wouldn't say put the pressure on, but I've just tried to take advantage of what I have, and yeah, just put the pedal down if I can.

Q. Days are long, course is hard, it is hot with these conditions. Stamina one of the first things to potentially go. What is the secret over the last two days that you've done to make all the energy worth it?

ALLY EWING: Yeah, just a lot of hydration, a lot of sleep. Part of the plus about having a late tee time is getting to sleep a little bit more, but at the same time you're in the heat of the day longer. It's kind of a balancing act.

But yeah, just keep drinking water, keep pushing food, even though you're sometimes too hot for it to taste really good. Yeah, as much as you put into an actual shot, it's just as important to take care between those shots, make sure you're hydrating and taking care of your body.
