Q. Laura, when did you find out you were going to play in the afternoon because of Beth being sick and what was it like to be out there with two rookies together? Patty already told us that she is sick, so it's okay.
LAURA DIAZ: Okay. Well, I was -- actually, before the week began, I was expecting five matches at the most, I knew that that was a possibility, but when we got here, you know, Patty said she wanted us all to participate, and that was a relief because that's a lot of matches; 36, 36, 18 is a lot of golf to play.
So when I got here this morning and I heard that Beth wasn't feeling well, I said, "I am fine, go ahead and play me. I am ready. I have waited and worked all my life to be here today, so I have got no problem going 36 if you need me."
Q. When did she tell you you were going to go?
LAURA DIAZ: This morning. Yeah, I was on the bus with Beth, so I knew how she felt.
Q. I guess Meg, could you sort of compare last Solheim Cup, they won the first four morning matches, and this morning.
Did you -- after the morning, did you have any sort of flash-back to that, and were you worried a little bit about the momentum then?
MEG MALLON: Yeah. Actually, the mantra of the team that was there was that, hey, we are one point ahead of last Solheim Cup, so we kept it really positive, and that match lifted us.
I mean, Patty is right, having that one point come out of that, because at one point in time it didn't look like -- you know, it might be a sweep again, so those guys really pulled it out for us this morning and gave us a lot of energy for this afternoon, especially knowing that Beth was so sick, too, the fact that they won that.
LAURA DIAZ: That was huge.
MODERATOR: Ladies, congratulations.
