Angela Stanford


Q. Just give us your understanding of the events at the 18th fairway.
ANGELA STANFORD: Well, back in the fairway actually we were told that it was out, so I never said provisional because everybody just kept saying it's out. Well, drop it and hit another one. So once we got up there, they said, well, it wasn't really out. I learned something today. I just thought that -- I didn't think I had to ever say provisional but I guess you always say provisional.

Q. It's a tough school, as we know, it's golf. But when you got to that hole which one would you have rather played anyway?
ANGELA STANFORD: That was the problem. I guess I could have made bogey now, I don't know. At the time I thought I only had to play the one on the green, so I don't know. I guess I would have to figure out a way to advance that ball and then try to get it up-and-down.

Q. That's where the ball ended up, but where it was originally was right up against a fence. You were obviously unable to see that.
ANGELA STANFORD: I probably would have hit it the same way, though. I was already thinking I was going to flip my putter, go on the other side of the fence, turn my putter and hit it off the toe just to advance it. I kind of knew the shot I was going to hit. But I guess it doesn't matter now.

Q. You showed a great deal of honesty. Where do you view your position now? You could have been four shots off the lead but now you're six going into the weekend.
ANGELA STANFORD: Well, happy it's Friday. Fortunately we get two more days, and you never know. I hit it in places today that I thought the ball was okay, and when I got up there it was not. Apparently anything can happen around here.

Q. When you look at the scores and what's been possible today with a couple of 64s, what do you make the way you and the rest of your compatriots are tearing this place up this week?
ANGELA STANFORD: Well, I'm surprised that the scores were so low today. I didn't think the pin placements were that easy, so I was surprised that a couple girls went low. But I guess maybe they played early. I think it does help to not have any wind blowing around here.

Q. You've been playing in this championship for decades now. The best you've had is a tied 13th on your first appearance here. How much more used to the links shot selection have you become these days?
ANGELA STANFORD: Getting there, but it might be Mr. Hogan pulling some strings for me up there. That's what I'm thinking.

Q. You're still firmly believing in destiny. We're firmly with you.
