Quotable "It'll probably set in more tomorrow, but I've never played in a professional event before, and it's going to be an unbelievable experience for my first to be the U.S. Women's Open. I've tried to qualify a couple of times, but it's tough, you have to play unbelievably in those qualifiers. I'm really looking forward to the whole experience." -- Shannon Johnson on earning an exemption into the 2019 U.S. Women's Open
