Q. Could we have some comments from the five rookies on the team how their first experience was?
JULI INKSTER: Come on, Diaz, you have never lacked for comments.
LAURA DIAZ: Okay. What do you want me to say? I think I have said this a few times this week, but I am just amazed at how well we all came together and bonded this week. It's been such a just emotional week, I think, for us all. Everybody has taught us so much, or taught me so much about myself and about being a team player.
You know, when I went out on my first match with Juli on Friday, I guess it was -- was it Friday? Friday. I didn't really know what to expect, and the relationship between the two teams, whether it was really going to be friendly or it was going to be cut-throat, and Juli showed me that it's very friendly.
We really respect the European Team, and she showed me how we had to treat them in a match play situation, which, you know, I really didn't -- I didn't know how that was going to go. So it was -- it's just been a great week, and I thank everyone for their leadership and I look forward to keeping this cup.
WENDY WARD: I thought you were going to say you are looking forward to dinner tonight.
LAURA DIAZ: I am.
WENDY WARD: What an experience. I can't say much more than Laura just did. We have learned a lot about being team players out here, there is no individuals on this team, and I wouldn't have it any other way. These girls are awesome and the most uplifting and encouraging -- that's one of the things that we miss playing individually on tour is we don't have that -- we have the camaraderie, but when you go out there as a team, it just takes it to a new and higher level, and it's been a complete joy, and I am going to work hard to get on the next team.
Q. Kelli, you want to go next?
KELLI KUEHNE: I think I can speak for pretty much all of us. The golf was an amazing part of this week, but it was the bonding and the dinners and the tears and the laughter and the camaraderie that was off the course that helped build our relationship on the course.
I never expected to come into the Solheim Cup crying at dinner over stories being shared or experiences or emotions, and that's something that I will never, ever forget about this week. It's been one of the greatest weeks of my life from a golf perspective and a career perspective, and as a team, there is 16 of us that are in our circle between Dottie, Jane, Patty, Dorothy and the other 12 players, and it has been such a tight -knit close-knit group working together, and I think it's a privilege to have been a part of it. It's been absolutely incredible.
EMILEE KLEIN: It's just been so incredible this week. Everybody has been fabulous. You know, if you needed something from anybody, a hug or a pep talk or anything, everybody was always there. And it was really a special week, something that can never be forgotten, and we had such a deep team that it was just so easy to go out there and just try to play our best and be successful, and it was wonderful. And I had some -- you know, everybody out here was just great. I am going to leave it like that so I kept it short for Meg.
CRISTIE KERR: I will try and keep it short, too. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Patty's team. Jane Geddes has been phenomenal, as well as Mindy Moore and all those girls at the LPGA. They have done a tremendous job, and Neal Reid and everybody at the LPGA has done a tremendous job for us and made it so much easier for us to just go out and play golf.
I felt very, very comfortable this week. I was a little bit nervous my first match, but Rosie taught me a lot; I played with her the second match, and I can just tell you, I have never -- I mean, the look on her face when she needed to dig down deep and come up with something, I have never witnessed that before in a regular golf tournament; it's really truly special to see that, and the players -- the faces of all these players. Hopefully, me included. I mean, I know I didn't do my best this week, but, you know --
MEG MALLON: Yeah, you did.
CRISTIE KERR: Winning-wise, but that wasn't the point of this week. I got back to even in my match today so I felt like I helped out the team just by getting the crowds into it more, so I did my best golf-wise, but whatever, it doesn't matter.
And I just thoroughly enjoyed the bonding that the team had and look forward to hopefully playing another one.
JULI INKSTER: Vying for those captain's picks next year, Patty.
Q. Any other questions? Okay. Thank you very much.
