YEON CHOI: Actually, I had a really good
round today. I think I hit a lot of good
shots today. My 14 clubs worked very
well, and actually like when I told you, right now I am more nervous than out
there. I wasn't nervous, and I focused
on my game and I played it one shot at a time.
Q. Was that the key? Everyone at home I'm sure wonders how does
someone put that many good holes together.
What goes through your mind and body when you're performing so well?
NA YEON CHOI: Well, actually I had a really good feeling
about my swing. Actually, you know, my
swing coach wasn't here. He left,
obviously, but we work Monday through Wednesday, and my swing and putting
stroke were better than before, and actually last two months I was playing like
so‑so, but I think this is time to be back on track.
Q. Were you watching the leaderboard? Did you realize you were gaining a bigger and
NA YEON CHOI: Actually, no.
I didn't watch the leaderboard, but I tried to watch the leaderboard, my
caddie always stop me, don't watch the leaderboard. Just play your game. So I didn't try watch the leaderboard, and
actually even right now I don't know what happened all the players.
Q. Right now it looks like you have a six‑shot
lead. Everyone dreams of winning the U.
S. Open. You have a very good
chance. What are you going to try to do
NA YEON CHOI: I will not change anything. I will just play my game, and I'm very
excited, and this tournament is very special to all the Korean players.
Fourteen years ago Se Ri Pak won the U. S.
Open, and I remember that feeling, and then I hope to continue for me.
Q. You did a great job, and I'm sure you made Se
Ri Pak very proud today. A 65, the
lowest ever U. S. Open score.
