Lexi Thompson

San Francisco, California, USA

The Olympic Club

Quick Quotes

Q. Lexi, I'm sure just an incredibly tough moment, but talk about the fight today.

LEXI THOMPSON: Yeah, of course it's tough. I really didn't feel like I hit any bad golf shots. That's what this golf course can do to you, and that's what I've said all week.

You know, 17, I mean, I didn't hit a bad drive. The wind just never got it and then it tried to bounce right, and I've never seen a lie that bad. That's what this course can do. Just got the wind wrong on a few shots coming in.

But overall I'd be the first one to tell you that I hit some bad golf shots and I deserved it, but it's golf.

Q. Were you aware of the leaderboard throughout the day?

LEXI THOMPSON: I knew about it coming down the stretch, I guess, the last few holes, but I really didn't look at it all day. Just honestly tried not to focus on it. I just wanted to come out today and play my game like I have the last few days, and no matter what happened, I knew if I just committed to my game plan and what I've been working on in my swing, I just want to see it keep on improving over time. Just got a few bad breaks, but that's golf.

Q. You came off the 18th green with a smile on your face. You're smiling right now, but we can obviously see the emotion, too. How is it hitting you about how difficult this was given how well you played?

LEXI THOMPSON: Yeah, of course it's hard to smile, but, I mean, it was an amazing week. Yeah, I played not so good today with a few of the bogeys coming in on the back nine, but the fans were unbelievable, hearing the chants and just gives me a reason to play.

It was just an unbelievable feeling to be out here and play this golf course. I've never been out here, so it was a blessing, and I'll take today and I'll learn from it and have a lot more weeks ahead, a lot more years. I have a tournament next week, so we'll take it from here.
