Q. Tell me what the difference was.
STACY LEWIS: You know, I actually didn't play that bad yesterday. I just kind of let a few things get to me. My attitude was not very good, and I came out today, I didn't really have anything to lose, and I knew I was playing well. So just a little better attitude.
Q. Is there a little bit feeling of pressure of maybe trying to get a few birdies early, just make sure you get yourself under par for the day and get sort of building toward I gotta make the cut if I want to win; right?
STACY LEWIS: Yeah, I knew I needed to shoot a couple under just to make the cut, but I kind of looked at it as chipping away at the lead, so that makes me not focus on the cut. That's what I did. If I can get to under par tomorrow, I think I'll be in a good spot. I'm happy I came back and played better today.
Q. How big was the birdie at 2 after bogey one?
STACY LEWIS: Oh, it was huge. I hit a bad second shot, bad chip shot that putt and I was like here we go again. And birdie at 2, bounced back right away, made a really good putt, and that really kind of calmed me down, and from there I didn't really hit a bad shot from there in.
Q. How far was the putt?
STACY LEWIS: About eight feet.
Q. The kind you need to make?
STACY LEWIS: Yeah, I mean a par 5 you hit a wedge in there pretty close, you have to make it, here at a U. S. Open you have to make it.
Q. Did you work on anything yesterday or do anything after your round? I know it was so late in the day?
STACY LEWIS: Honestly I got done with the round and I told my coach, I said I don't know what I would work on. I made a couple ‑‑ one bad swing on 6, and really, shooting a couple over is not really a bad score out there. So I didn't really know what I needed to work on, so I didn't really do anything. We also finished at 8:00. So less than 12 hours to my tee time.
Q. In some ways is that not better because then you're not stewing on it, too?
STACY LEWIS: Absolutely. I was glad I didn't play in the morning, and I had all day yesterday to think about it and then this morning to think about it, so it was good that I was able to get into a rhythm early this morning.
