Quick Quotes

Q. All right, just kind of start by taking us through the match and how you thought it went for you today.

NIKKI OH: Yeah, I mean, I don't think I brought out my A game today. The match was pretty close all day. I started 2-up but then she brought it back.

Then we tied until about like hole 15. That's when I started to just play consistent, and she made a few mistakes coming down the stretch.

So, yeah.

Q. I was going to say, it was tied for a while and you were up and went down and then kind of came back from a being down.


Q. What was going through your mind there. Was there anything you you trying to do to get back into it a little bit?

NIKKI OH: Yeah, I got a little frustrated out there but I tried to calm myself. My caddie was reminding me there are a lot of holes left. I've been playing well so I just trusted my game.

Q. Do you have a lot of match play experience?

NIKKI OH: I do. I played the Polo Junior Classic earlier this year. I was a finalist there. I think that really gave me a lot of confidence and experience.

Q. Last question: Anything that you switched with your mindset today or the way that you're playing just knowing it was match play?

NIKKI OH: I still wanted to have the same mindset as stroke play. I was just focusing on myself more than my opponent.

Yeah, I was playing a little more aggressive, going at pins more, yeah.
