Quick Quotes

Q. Here with Minjee Lee after her first round the T-Mobile Match Play. Talk your round and how you felt like you played.

MINJEE LEE: Yeah, actually I played quite solid. I think I took a little more advantage of the first nine holes, which had less wind and a little softer conditions, so made three birdies on the front maybe or four and turned in 3-under.

So, yeah, I was pretty steady. Come the back nine it got a little bit tougher, the conditions, but overall happy with my start.

Q. You mentioned with Kay a little bit the difference between stroke play and match play. How do you feel like it suits your game, this course in particular maybe?

MINJEE LEE: Yeah, it's a very ball-strikers' golf course, second-shot golf course, so I think that's really in my favor. That's where I think I excel.

So, yeah, no, I love the challenge of this golf course. Obviously it's meant to be a little windier and probably going to get a little bit more bouncier, so hoping for a bit more good play.

Q. And your brother lives out here. Have you had the chance to play out here a little bit more maybe?

MINJEE LEE: Oh, no, no. I don't come visit him much because he's busy as well. No, because our paths don't cross too often, so whenever our schedule is right. He came to watch me for nine holes, so it was nice to see him out there.
