Q. What is it about this format that brings the best out of you?
ARIYA JUTANUGARN: I feel like we're pretty good like help each other pretty good today because like when I missed a shot, like when I made bogey, she kind of made par or birdie. Today she helping me a lot.
Q. When you go into tomorrow, alternate-shot again, what's going to be the strategy, the key to the success tomorrow?
MORIYA JUTANUGARN: It feels like alternate-shot have to be you play one game. Every shot, you just make sure you don't feel sorry to your partner. You just have to talk and have a plan for a little bit.
Q. What's it like sisters playing together? It's got to be a pretty special week for you.
ARIYA JUTANUGARN: It's really special for us. Even like two years ago, this is only our second time, but today we kind of tried to beat each other. When I have like 20 yards longer, so I hit 9-iron and she also hit 9-iron like 20 yards in front of me, so I'm like, I hit longer, but she hit it first there.
Q. One thing I did notice, you let her stand on the tall side so she'd be as tall as you.
ARIYA JUTANUGARN: I don't want to do it because I want her to know how tall she is, but she wanted to stand on that side.
