Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Shadow Creek

Quick Quotes

Q. All right, Albane, the last one on the course today, going all 18 holes. Just how satisfying is it to walk away with a win today?

ALBANE VALENZUELA: Yeah, definitely very happy to walk away with a win. I mean, I knew this was going to be a very tough match. Lilia is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world and made me work for the points.

She definitely left some putts out there, and I did as well, so we kind of fought 'til the end, but just happy to come out with a win.

Q. What was kind of the mindset? You won yesterday. How much confidence did that give you going into today knowing that the game for match play is there?

ALBANE VALENZUELA: You know, match play is just tough. You go against your opponent. You never know what they're going to do. I just try to grind, stay patient, and give my best.

Lilia made a huge putt on 17, and that's what match play does to you. Whoever really you're coming across on the leaderboard it's just going to be a tough one, so I just try to stick to my game, enjoy it, and just having a good time with my caddie out there.

Q. Walk me through, if you don't mind, 18. I happened to be down there and I was a little confused myself. So walk me through that final hole. It wasn't easy for either of you.

ALBANE VALENZUELA: No, it definitely wasn't easy. So Lilia pushed it to the right, and then I also missed it in the rough just short of the bunker.

We both just had no looks to the green. I mean, she hit the tree and I just couldn't even think of hitting an 8-iron out of this rough. So just laid up and just trust my wedge game.

So, you know, tried to find a good yardage and hit it really close and she made some mistakes there, so walked away with a point.
