MELANIE WALKER: Well, we just kept on saying it's just not making the cut, this is do-or-die. But we didn't do -- we missed a couple putts coming in.

I think just knowing, hey, I can get it in position, if I'm in the trees and hit it close to the green and get a par, like our first part of the day both of us were right, she chipped out and hit it to three feet, and we tied the hole. Just getting it to that, we have -- just knowing and being confident in that.
