Evian Resort Golf Club
Q. Lydia, got to be a good feeling to finally be back here in Evian. How are you doing right now?
LYDIA KO: Yeah, obviously we missed it last year, so definitely good to be back. It's a place with I've had a lot of good memories, so, yeah, weather is beautiful and hopefully it stays that way the rest of the week.
Q. I obviously know what they are, but in your voice tell us some of the great memories you got here.
LYDIA KO: My final round here the year that I won in '15 is probably some of the best golf that I've played. You know, I think when I was out of position I played smart and I finished really strong with a couple birdies in my last two holes.
So, yeah, in general, I used to be an Evian ambassador, so I feel like I have that connection with Franck and Jacques, and obviously Rolex is obviously a huge supporter of this event, so hopefully do them proud.
Q. You finished up the first practice round. We've had of a lot rain here over the last week, but how is the course looking?
LYDIA KO: I thought it was going to be really wet after seeing the email about how much rain this course is kind of received, but it's actually pretty dry considering.
I just don't know how much -- like what extent the rain was. It's drier than some time we've dominate come who are is looking pretty pure.
Q. How is your game feeling right now?
LYDIA KO: I had so much fun playing with Danielle last week. I had a couple not-so-good shots that kind of put us out of contention on this Friday.
But, no, hopefully that gives me good momentum coming here and just enjoy it and see what happens.
Q. And we're in for a busy couple weeks. Here, Olympics, AIG. How are you going to be managing your time?
LYDIA KO: Yeah, going to take next week off, go home it Orlando for a few days and then I'll be doing Olympics and the two Scottish events and have a pretty big break after that. Yeah, this is an important and big stretch for me.
So just making sure that I'm physically feeling good as well as mentally.
