Quick Quotes from:
Q. How would you
describe that round?
INBEE PARK: It was great. I had hit the ball so good today. I
mean, I didn't miss many shots out there. Gave a lot of opportunities at birdie
in this kind of conditions where there was wind and fog. Everything was very
tough conditions out there to play in.
I think I really played good out there. I mean, it really
made me think today that with the wind and fog, it just really made me think. I
think that is what the U.S. Open is all about.
Q. (Inaudible) what
INBEE PARK: I think just a couple of bad shots on the front
nine. I mean, No. 7 on the par 3 was in more the wind that really took that
And I mean, I didn't miss many shots out there I don't think
today. I probably left a couple of putts out there on No. 10 through 12. But it
just happens. I got a couple back on the back nine, so it was good.
Q. The putt from off
the green on 13, can you describe that? What was that like?
INBEE PARK: I think it was just giving it back to me for
missing 3. I think I just had to be away from the hole. I mean, everything that
was close from the hole was not going in, and then everything that was farther
away from the hole was going in today. It was weird.
Q. You had two putts
today from off the green, right?
INBEE PARK: It was a weird putting day. I didn't make 10 or
15 footers today, but I made 30 footers. That really makes up.
Q. How would you
describe today? There was all kinds of different conditions. It was sunny, hot,
INBEE PARK: Kind of like four different seasons in one day. You
kind of expect it with the ocean here. I think it's tough to play in the fog
because you can't see it. You can't see your target. I think that was the
toughest thing. The wind, I think it was always coming in to factor this week. Especially
in the weekend it will definitely come into play, so now is a good practice.
Q. At what point did
you get to where you couldn't see your shots come down? 16 or 17?
INBEE PARK: On 16, I was able to see it.
And then 17, it just got a little bit very foggy and last
hole was very foggy, but I see it to until about 150 yards and that was it. I
really wanted to finish today and get a good rest and be fresh for tomorrow.
Q. You are marching
towards history. Do you allow yourself to think about that?
INBEE PARK: It's tough not to think about it, but I'm I just try to think that's not a big deal. If
I want to do it so much, it's just so tough and it puts too much pressure on
you. Try to not think about so much.
Q. When the fog first
starts coming in, it's still a very easy thought that you'd still rather get
that round over with as opposed to having to stop?
INBEE PARK: I mean, it was just the one hole that we needed
to play, so, I mean, I would definitely play it anyways. You know what the hole
looks like, you just really need to trust in yourself.
Q. Do you think you
could have shot like 65 today with the way you were sticking
INBEE PARK: Yeah, I think I could have shot 65 today if my
putter was really going. Yeah, but I mean, 4 under is I think good enough for
this golf course.
