Midland Country Club
THE MODERATOR: Here with MJ Hur and Jeongeun Lee6. The team name is?
JEONGEUN LEE6: MI6.
Q. How nice was it to close with that birdie there on 18?
MI JUNG HUR: You know what, her caddie, Dave, had greens books, and I just borrow from him and checked the lie. It's like left to right, left to right. It's like seven yards from the hole but four or five times left to right, left to right.
I'm like, okay, I'm going straight. So I went straight and it went in.
THE MODERATOR: Was that very satisfying after the day you guys had today?
MI JUNG HUR: Oh, yes. Finish with birdie always satisfy.
THE MODERATOR: Lee6, how much fun is it playing with MJ here this week?
JEONGEUN LEE6: Yeah, we practice round a lot together, so we know each other well. Yeah, I want to make good memories with Mi Jung.
Q. Mi Jung, when did this partnership come together? Who asked who and when did you guys decide to play this event together?
MI JUNG HUR: Since last year in Texas we're starting to book a tee time for the practice rounds together, which is we play a bunch of times still until this tournament. Maybe in March, April, I asked her, Can I play with you at this tournament, and she just accept right away. That's why we made a team up.
Q. What do you like most about MJ's game?
JEONGEUN LEE6: We are a little bit different swings, so my shot is good, maybe MJ's short game is really good.
Q. What would you say, MJ? What do you like most about 6's game?
MI JUNG HUR: She just plays everything perfect. I love her swing. When I met her first time was like three years ago, and her swing was so perfect and lovely. I told her right away, even we don't know each other, Hey, 6, your swings are perfect, and she was embarrassed.
Anyway, her swing is good and her short game is perfect and her putter is like hot. Like hot 6.
Q. How many times have you played this format, 6? How many times have you done best ball or alternate-shot before this week?
MI JUNG HUR: You mean in practice?
Q. No, in competition.
JEONGEUN LEE6: Maybe four, five times.
Q. Do you like this kind of style of play or would you rather it be the normal LPGA stroke play tournament?
JEONGEUN LEE6: Yeah, I like it. It was exciting. But a little bit nervous.
Q. MJ, when you're playing alongside 6, how much trust do you have in her game?
MI JUNG HUR: Oh, a hundred percent. Even she had a long par putt, have to make it, I just give to my caddie putter away, because she's going to make it. Like yesterday, foursomes, especially foursomes, if she missed the putt I have to finish out, but I always give to my caddie my putter. She's going to make it.
Q. How comfortable did you feel on these greens today, because there were a couple that were just that close?
JEONGEUN LEE6: Green condition is really good, yeah.
Q. You were getting fiery out there. Do you like the emotion that you get playing with MJ?
JEONGEUN LEE6: Yes, I am really happy with her.
Q. MJ, what will be the game plan as you guys take on the formats again this week?
MI JUNG HUR: Starting tomorrow? Just play our shot and having fun out there. If we have fun on the course, the score will be good. I believe that.
