Q. Were you surprised how well she held it together, especially after the double bogey on eight?
MEG MALLON: We know what kind of game she has, and we're surprised she hasn't won. She really hit some fine shots coming in. Terrific shot on 16 and the shot out of the ruff, real patient, mature shot there just to get it on the green. 18, she went out and won it, and I tried to put a little pressure on her, and she handled it really well.
Q. She lost in the playoff last year and that can either give you experience or traumatize you. Obviously she used it for the experience.
MEG MALLON: It shows what kind of character she has and what drive she has to win out here. I think this will probably help her and catapult her in her career.
Q. Have you ever won a tournament when you didn't have your best stuff, when, as you said, you are your worst enemy?
MEG MALLON: Oh, sure. You don't want to try and beg off someone else's mistakes. You want to go out and win a golf tournament. The conditions -- the course got difficult today. The greens got very firm, and so as it turned out, it didn't take that. I certainly didn't start out that way either. So I had to adjust my mental framework to just try to get the ball in the green and give myself a shot to make putts.
When you're just off like that, that's why it's a great golf course. You can't could that and get rewarded.
Q. Do you think she has the potential to be a star on this Tour?
MEG MALLON: Absolutely, especially the way she handled herself today. I think she has a lot of drive. She will do well. Judging by her character in coming back from last year, the determination to win this tournament.
You got in trouble today by the way. I saw you. The police were after him. Did you guys see this? The police were after him and he moved one step over. It was classic. It's nice to be entertained out there. Thanks, Jack. That was on our way to 15, I got to watch all that.
