Quick Quotes

Q. So 19 holes to get to the quarterfinals. What does it mean to get to this stage now in the final 8?

CATHERINE RAO: It means a lot. Last year I made it to the quarterfinals too, and the R&A Am I made the quarterfinals. One of my biggest goals was to make it past quarterfinals.

More than anything, my match against Catie this afternoon, we both played amazing and it was just a super fun match.

Like that's what I play golf for. That's the best part of USGA events, so it means the world to have that experience again.

Q. Have you noticed any big differences in the course Monday stroke play versus now?

CATHERINE RAO: Not really. I think all my misses were because of me and not really the course. Course wasn't too nice to me today, but we made it work.
