Q. The course seems
likes it's more difficult but you had a pretty good round today?
SO YEON RYU: You know, the two days be more windy so it's
really hard to hit the second shot, especially this green is huge. The iron

really easy to play.
Q. Were there clubs
that you used yesterday that never came out of your bag today?
SO YEON RYU: Yeah, actually if I hit 9 iron today, I hit

it's really hard to trust the yardage.
