Angela Park


DANA GROSS-RHODE: Can we go over your scorecard really fast?
ANGELA PARK: Started on 10. Bogey on 10. Do I have to say what club and --
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Yeah, how far out you were and all that.
ANGELA PARK: 130 yards, 9-iron to the bunker. It got plugged and I hit it out to about ten feet and missed the putt there.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: 130 yards?
ANGELA PARK: Yes. And then all the way -- I parred all the way to No. 2. I hit 6-iron from 162 yards, I think. Made that putt.
And then on 3 I hit it in the bunker. On my second shot I hit it out to about seven feet and made that.
Bogey on 4 and 5. 4 I hit it to right and had a chip out to the green. Chipped and one putt.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: How far was the chip?
ANGELA PARK: About only three yards off the green. Extremely downhill.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: To how close.
ANGELA PARK: To about five feet.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Okay. And you made it or missed it?
ANGELA PARK: I made that. And then No. 5, about 140 yards, 7-iron to about 25 feet and 3-putted.
ANGELA PARK: And then on 7, I hit a 6-iron from 160 yards to about 12 feet and made that.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Okay. Can you just talk about your round? I mean, you're still in the top part of the leaderboard right now.
ANGELA PARK: I was really nervous out there today obviously as a rookie. I don't know, I just went out there today just trying to stay calm like I did yesterday. Nothing to worry about.
My dad told me before I came out today to just to relax and not to get too greedy on the course because that usually ruins your game. So obviously I was a little bit nervous, but I'm glad their finished even par.

Q. (No microphone.)
ANGELA PARK: She might be making a birdie on that Par 5. I just saw it on TV.

Q. (No microphone.)
ANGELA PARK: Yeah. So Par 5. But she has a birdie putt, so I might be three strokes back. Who knows.

Q. Are you concerned with how far back you are at this point or is it way too early?
ANGELA PARK: Obviously in golf anything can happen in one hole and we still have 36 holes to go. So three- or five- or ten-stroke lead is never too much of a lead to catch up to.
I'm not really thinking about that, though. Just trying to go out there tomorrow and have a consistent round where I hit greens and fairways and make some putts.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Are you ever thinking out there? Does it ever get to the point where you start to think too much, or do you just rely on your talent?
ANGELA PARK: I think today actually the Front 9, which was my Back 9, I was thinking too much. I told you I was a little bit nervous. I got to a point where, you know, this is not going to work if you're going to be nervous every hole about 3-putting or making a birdie, it's not going to go in.
I've done that before. I was in the lead and couldn't execute my shots thought the final round, so I learned from those mistakes. I relaxed a little bit more on the Back 9 and made a couple putts and missed a couple, but still did a pretty good job today.

Q. How about the weather tomorrow? It sounds pretty nasty, is that a concern?
ANGELA PARK: No. Because this is the first time I heard the weather is going to be nasty.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Tee times is 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
ANGELA PARK: Uh-huh. Get to sleep early tonight.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Anything else? Just looking forward to the weekend going in close on the leaderboard, your thoughts on that?
ANGELA PARK: I don't really want to think about it right now. Just want to go home and take a nice shower and relax and hopefully the next few days I'll play my game and not look at the scoreboard.
DANA GROSS-RHODE: Okay. Thank you.
