Q. You finished even par today. How did you feel all week?
AMY OLSON: Yeah, honestly I played really solid all week. I struggled with my tee shots for different stretches kind of throughout, and when you do that you're going to make bogeys.
So I had a little tough stretch kind of in the middle of the round today, but overall really pleased with just the direction my game is headed. And performing well in a major championship, it's always the ultimate test, so it just feels good.
Q. Talk about how each day played differently and what it meant to be at this course.
AMY OLSON: Yeah, this was honestly such a treat to be here. The course was in unbelievable shape. It was tough but it was fair. Honestly it played a little different day-to-day, kind of depending on the wind, but I don't feel like they tried to trick it up one day more than another.
It really was if you were keeping your ball in the fairway and on the green you had birdie chances, which is kind of the way it should be. But that's a big if.
Q. How do you feel like your experience last year helped this year? How do they compare to each other?
AMY OLSON: Yeah, just the courses were so different. Champions I think -- I think it played a lot longer. The greens were huge. The greens I think were faster than they were here.
But this is just so different because the greens were super small, a ton of elevation change. It's really hard to compare both of them other than that you had to really hit your long irons good. I had to hit a lot of long irons.
I'm not hitting it as far as I normally do right now, so I put a lot of stress on my 7-, 6-, 5-, 4-iron this week. Fortunately they were good, so that helped. But yeah, just a very different feel, but both did feel like a U.S. Open.
