Kyra Van Kan

Malelane, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Quick Quotes

Q. 1-under par-71 today; talk us through your performance and how you felt it went.

KYRA VAN KAN: So I got off to a good start. I was 2-under through six holes, and unfortunately I messed up 7 and 8. I made two doubles in a row. I was back to square one. But I just put myself together and refocused, and then I played really nicely the back nine. I made three birdies in a row on 13, 14 and 15, and I was really happy to par the 18th hole. That hole doesn't sit particularly well with me. I'm glad I finished pretty well today.

Q. When you're in position where you've made back-to-back double bogeys, how do you reset and refocus? You talked about those birdies; you must have felt happy with how the round played out in the end.

KYRA VAN KAN: I really didn't set myself up very well at all. I didn't hit it in great spots on those two holes, so they were bound to happen. It's just one of those things.

I knew it was just a mistake, so I'm much better than that, so I just refocused, went back to basics, and pulled myself together and came back nicely on the back nine.

Q. Looking forward to tomorrow, you're obviously leading and feeling confident about lifting the trophy tomorrow?

KYRA VAN KAN: Yeah, I'm really honored to be here. It's such a beautiful golf course. A lot of hard work has gone into this golf tournament. I'm very excited for round 3 tomorrow, the last round. I think if I just play the front nine a lot better and a lot more consistent, I can come in with a low score, and I'm really looking forward to a fun day in the sun again.

Q. How much fun are you having with the staging and the TV cameras and the TV coverage. I saw your putt on 18 there and composing yourself. How important is it to have the experience of being here?

KYRA VAN KAN: Yeah, it's honestly amazing. I do feel a little bit of pressure with all the cameras and that, but you've got to embrace it. I feel like if I just smile in front of the cameras, I'll be okay.

It's been a great experience, big learning curve I've had these past two days. You can honestly just get better from here. So thank you.
