Ashleigh Buhai

Jersey City, New Jersey, USA

Liberty National Golf Club

Quick Quotes

Q. I'm here about Ashleigh Buhai, 8-under, 64 today. Can you tell us about your round?

ASHLEIGH BUHAI: Yeah, I mean, to be honest, I hit and played today like I have every other day, but I've just had a couple of big numbers. I knew if I kept those off the card the way I've been hitting it and rolling it, I could go low at some point, whether it be this week or the coming weeks.

Just kind of what I'm trying to do is get into this four-week stretch and try ball momentum, and I've very happy that today I was able to put it all together.

Q. Then you had 25 putts I believe today. Was that kind of the key to your round you think?

ASHLEIGH BUHAI: Yeah, that definitely helps. I mean, yesterday I hit a lot of good putts and they burnt the edges. My coach came in from South Africa and he just said, you just need to stay patient, because when it happens it's going to be low.

And my caddie kept telling me the same thing, too. She says, when it happens it's going to be low, and today was that day where they all kind of dropped in the middle.

Q. And then what was the mentality going into today?

ASHLEIGH BUHAI: Just keep doing the things I've done the last few days. Even though the scores haven't shown or produced what I would've liked, I am doing the right things. I'm hitting it great, I've stayed patient, and that's what you kind of have to do around this golf course.

I don't think many of us saw 8-under around here, but there has been a few 8-unders at the same time, so it's definitely doable if you hit it in the right spots.

Q. That's what I was going to say, you tied for the 18-hole scoring record at this tournament, the first year of it. What does that mean to you?

ASHLEIGH BUHAI: Yeah, it's cool. You know, it's cool to be part of that group. I think this event has been fantastic first year. We've been treated so well. The experience ever being in the city and ferrying over it's been a really cool week.

I think we're all looking forward to coming back.

Q. One last question. Played with an AJGA junior. Were you able to give her any advice today?

ASHLEIGH BUHAI: To be honest, I was kind of just trying to stay in my own little bubble. Spoke a little bit. Asked where she's from, how old she is, asked if she wants to go college, those sorts of things.

But she says it's been an amazing week for her to be able to play in an LPGA event, experience this. For them they get to see where their game is and where they need to get it to in order if this is what they want to do for a living, because obviously we know it's tough.

I think for them to have this experience is unbelievable.
