Q. Lost a couple of
par today, but still minus 2 for the championship. What were the conditions
like for to you today?
ANNA NORDQVIST: It was brutal at times. I didn't feel like I
hit a bad shot first three holes and I started bogey, bogey, bogey.
You know, it's just penalizing. It's hard when you don't get
rewarded for good shots, but that's the beauty of the game, I guess. But I made
a couple of bogeys early on, and it was just a matter of staying mentally tough
and grinding it out and hanging in there. I think I managed to make three
birdies on the back nine and shoot 2 over par for the day, which I'm very happy
about. It was tough out there.
Q. The U.S. Open is
always about the difficulty factor, and you're only right now 5 shots off the
lead and there are two rounds to play. That's got to be something that you can
say I'm near. I can make a move; right?
ANNA NORDQVIST: Absolutely. It feels like the U.S. Open is
all about surviving. Surviving the first couple of days and then you never know
what's going to happen over the weekend or even on Sunday. I believe they just
make it even tougher for the weekend, so I feel like I'm in a good spot. You
just keep grinding, and hope I'm there on Sunday.
