Q. What is this finish, a field with the best players, does it help your confidence as you move forward?
CRISTIE KERR: Absolutely, I view myself as one of the hardest working one of the top players on our TOUR in the world. I feel like I'm only going to continue to get better and for whatever reason I didn't win in Vegas. And for whatever reason I didn't win here maybe, maybe I'm to win a major this year or maybe next week. You never know what God has got planned for you, in store for you.
Q. What is your wedding date?
CRISTIE KERR: It's in December.
Q. You talked about being able to handle pressure, just being a learning experience, did you feel like coming down the stretch that nerves ever got the best of you?
CRISTIE KERR: I wouldn't say nerves. It's hard to control your adrenaline some time. I wasn't nervous. You have some much adrenaline going through your system. Your heart rate is so fast you are burning fat, let me put it that way. I think the more I'm in these situations the easier I'm going be. It's never going to be easy but it will get easier.
And I felt like I could stand over my second shot on 18 with a 4-iron with a chance to knock it close versus oh just get it to green. I had a lot more confidence that I could hold things together. It didn't happen but I had a lot more confidence that I could hold things together coming down the stretch. I did not hit it good all week considering. Considering that I had a great week. I know looking back in retrospect I had a 2 shot lead with four holes to go. But you can never second-guess yourself. I'm not like that. I gave it one 100 percent. I always do. And it was Grace's week.
Q. I know it's been a while, are you still making some adjustments to your swing and such because of the weight loss?
CRISTIE KERR: No. It's and long time. I can't tell you. I'm always working kind of on the same stuff.
Q. It doesn't have anything to do --
CRISTIE KERR: No, I saw my teacher in the beginning of the week, his name is Michael Hunt. I still see Jim McLain on occasion, he works with Jim, for Jim, down in Doral in Miami. He came up to see me and my setup was kind of off and we fixed it. I don't know how much we fixed it but I didn't hit it good the first two days. I found something today that I started hitting it better. It was disappointing to see a couple of errant shots when I needed to hit good ones. I felt good out there today. That's all I really could ask for.
Q. Did you say anything to Grace after those first four holes?
CRISTIE KERR: I was trying not to watch. I really was, because when you are playing well and somebody starts hitting it a little crooked, you really don't want to see it. I kind of put blinders on. She made three birdies in a row starting on No. 5 was it? 5, 6 and 7 she birdied to get back to even or 1-over or something for the day. That's a pretty tough thing to do when you start out as bad as she did to bring it back to shoot even for the day. It ended up being good enough.
Q. Are you anxious to go and compete again?
CRISTIE KERR: Yes, I'm anxious right now. Let's go tee it up. Who is with me?
Q. Do you feel like you are close to winning?
CRISTIE KERR: Yes, I feel like I'm getting real close to winning. I'm getting a little ancie. I'm glad I don't have an off week. I can get there and just try again. That's all I can really do.
NEAL REID: Thank you very much.
