NA YEON CHOI: You know, I ‑‑ I think I can't believe
this. But maybe tomorrow I can feel it,
after ‑‑ when I get to Korea. But
you know, I think I did a really good job today. I had really good patience, and I was very
calm. So I think I I'm very happy and
I'm very satisfied now.
So you knew about Se Ri's victory in '98. You knew about Blackwolf Run coming into
it. What does that do to your
expectations and your preparation?
NA YEON CHOI: Actually, this course wasn't very difficult,
I think. I'm not sure how was it 14 years
ago, but I just remember when she hit from the water on 18. But actually, this week played really hard,
and like played very long. So I think I
just trusted when my caddie gave me a number, I just trusted it and trusted my
swing and hit it my best and I got some good results.
You had a big lead heading into today.
Did that change your preparation?
NA YEON CHOI: I wasn't nervous at all. I mean, I was very calm on Front 9. But I had one missed shot on 10 tee box and I
got triple bogey. But I bounced back on
11 and I had a good par on 12, and I got luck ‑‑ you know, big luck on 13
So I can't control about that. I think everything is really helped me this
week, and I really appreciate it.
What does this do for your future, now that you can say you're a U.S.
Women's Open championship?
NA YEON CHOI: Like ‑‑ you know what, like 14 years
ago, Se Ri won, and I watched it. And
then I said I called her legend. And she
inspired all the Korean players. I want
to be like that. I want to be like Se Ri
NA YEON CHOI: Thank you.
