Q. What difference is it making to you to have your husband out with you this year?
LAURA DIAZ: Kevin is my best friend, so I think that being able to have your best friend out on the road with you and support you in your career is an incredible asset to my life. It has been a lot of fun and there's a lot of changes that have occurred too because you go from being alone to being with someone all the time. It has been nothing but great for me. I was able to enjoy my first victory with him here, and the only people that were really missing from that were my parents. I think that he's excited to be here and I am loving having him out here.
Q. Your dad wasn't there, was that kind of tough, it wasn't on TV, what transpired, did you call him?
LAURA DIAZ: I got to walk off the 18th green and I was handed my husband's cell phone. He was on the other end. He said: Laura. I said: Dad, I won, I won. It was great. I think that it was a little nerve-wracking for them at home because our site -- the LPGA web site was overloaded so it went down, so my parents were a bit frazzled, I think for a while, but you know, there was so much screaming in the background from his end going on. I think that they miss not being there, but I think they felt it so much in their heart that it was almost like having them there.
Q. If the Solheim were played today (inaudible) basically would be five new players that would have no Solheim experience; is this something that's a good thing maybe, can you use that as you guys are hungry, want to be there?
LAURA DIAZ: I think it's definitely a good thing to have new players in Solheim Cup. I think everyone knows that it's going to happen at one point or another and I think the older players, the experienced players are going to take the younger players under their wing and show them basically how to win a Solheim Cup.
