Q. You mentioned wanting to kick it into gear. Do you feel like maybe you can play better than you did today?
LAURA DIAZ: I'm very pleased with the round I put together today (laughter).
You know, I think as a player you always want to go as low as you can. I've only shot 65 once, so I think that it's always kind of a battle out there to get lower, you know, to shoot that 64, 63. I don't go out with a number in mind, but I try and make 18 birdies.
I'll just keep trying to do that for the next three days.
Q. You said you wanted to feel the heat. Would you have preferred to play in the morning? You're the only golfer challenging for the lead that started in the afternoon.
LAURA DIAZ: No. I like the tee time today. Normally I do prefer to be early/late. Kind of gives you a little more recovery time. Because of the weather, I really wanted to play in the afternoon. I was pleased with my tee time.
I feel more comfortable when I can swing, you know, without a lot of layers on. I'll take the tee time I had and run with it tomorrow, as well.
