Q. Does that mean you'll play more aggressive?
JULI INKSTER: No, you can't really go out there and try to play aggressive. You got to go out there and try to play -- take each shot as it comes. I thought the pin placements today were extremely tough, and on some of the -- you know, on most of the downwind holes, they had the pin up front, and the front of the greens were watered, so just -- i'd like to ask them, where are we supposed to hit the ball?
Because if you land it on the green, you're behind the hole, or over the green. If you landed short, it hits the wet spot and spits back. You can't really go out there and play aggressive.
It's not like the greens are holding. You've got to just play certain spots on the green and putt over to it, and when you get an opportunity to make birdie, you need to cash in.
MODERATOR: Two more questions.
Q. Juli, your age is not that much different than Nancy's. What is it about your game that's allowed it to weather better over the years.
JULI INKSTER: My age is a lot different than Nancy's; she's a lot older than I am. I don't know, I just -- I can't answer that because I really don't know Nancy's practice schedule or what she does at home or whatever.
You know, I've kind of come to realize that in order for me to compete out here, I have to practice at home, so I practice a lot at home, so when I'm out here I'm ready to play. I think in order to play this game you have to have the desire to practice and the desire to play.
And I think sometimes you have done as much as you can do in the game, maybe you lose a little bit of desire. I can't speak for Nancy, but I know in order for me to play well, I have to still want it and I still want it.
Q. I wonder if you could -- the par 4s are playing pretty tough today for the whole field. Could you talk a little bit about that and which ones were the toughest?
JULI INKSTER: I thought 11 was extremely tough today. The tough par 4s out here are -- 9 is a very tough
par 4. Let's see, 5 is a good par 4, 16 is a good par 4, and I think 13 is a good par 4. There's a lot of good ones out there.
I think even the short ones, number 12 today, I hit a 5-iron off the tee, Amy Fruhwirth hit probably a 5-wood, Annika hit a driver, and I don't think any of us were on the green. So how do you play that hole? I'd like to know, because the pin is on 7, straight downwind, I hit it short and it stayed short. I guess Amy was on the green. Annika only had about 30-yard shot, she is over the green. I think even the short downwind holes are playing tough.
MODERATOR: All right, Juli, thanks very much for spending some time with us.
