Q. This tournament's record is 20-under-par and there are a lot of players that have a chance to break that. Does that say something for the level of talent on the LPGA right now?
LORIE KANE: I agree 100 percent with you. No, I think, we're playing some fantastic golf week-in and week-out, and Annika has, like I said yesterday, raised the bar and the rest of us are holding on for dear life. Corning deserves a good field. They have been with us for 25 years, and they're going to have a good champion, and I hope it's me tomorrow.
Q. Is there any correlation to the large number of veteran players that are atop the leader board to being able to manage these conditions?
LORIE KANE: Well, I would have to say with the veterans that are on the board that come to mind right off the bat, Juli, Meg, Beth Daniel. Beth I believe probably has the best swing in golf. It's no surprise to me she's where she is. She is tough. Juli is a die-hard competitor and Meg as well, so, no, they're there, and it's no surprise. I think it's been a while since they have been back to Corning. That's why it's nice for the tournament that we're here. I hope tomorrow that mother nature is kind to us, so we can bring the great fans out that we normally had.
