Quick Quotes

Q. We're here with Moriya and Ariya Jutanugarn, 3-under to start the day, four birdies and one bogey. Walk us through the round.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: We actually had a lot of chance for birdies and like some go in and some just not. I mean, we had a few solid like shots out there, a lot of good shots.

Not a lot of fight today, so so far we are good.

Q. Was there any point today where you were like, oh, boy, she did it again?


ARIYA JUTANUGARN: Yeah, a few times on the course because I have like 30 feet and I putt like 10 feet past the hole. I know she's a bit mad because normally when I play by myself I never done that.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: She doesn't do that.

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: I did that like twice today.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: And then I hit it like six foot past and she thought I got it back. I was like, I didn't get it back.

Other than that we were not that bad. We had not a lot of fight, and if I get mad, try to walk away and not talking for her for like maybe one hole or two.

Q. One of the primary rules of playing alternate-shot is you never say you're sorry; did any of you ever say that?

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: We say that a lot. We have to because the way I miss is just like, I have to say sorry, and I feel sorry. I feel that, so I have to say sorry.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: She doesn't show that she feel it, but it's okay. As long as she say sorry, I was like, fine, whatever.

Q. How often do you two play this format?

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: No, not very often.

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: We play together International Crown, but it's not like this kind of format. Normally we play --

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: -- like best ball.

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: Yeah, best ball. It's just fun.

Q. Have you done it in the last two years? Have you played it at all?

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: No. Well, last time is like we playing this together --

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: This tournament two years ago.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: That's the last time, I guess.

Q. You're sitting at 3-under, two off the lead right now. Going into the best ball format, how do you like your chances?


MORIYA JUTANUGARN: I mean, best ball --

ARIYA JUTANUGARN: Actually I'm very excited to play my own ball because when I miss I feel bad to her, because the way I miss is kind of hard to play, so I feel I'm ready to play like best ball tomorrow.

MORIYA JUTANUGARN: I think best ball is something that's always -- you can kind of help your partner but you play your game. I think it's going to make it a little bit easier and probably no fight.
