SEI YOUNG KIM: Last hole I made a chip-in so we finish early. Yeah, we tee off very early so we got the really cold weather. Feels like really frigid, so distance-wise really shorter than last couple days. And then wind is kind of opposite so it's totally different strategy.

But, yeah, I kind of enjoyed it, play the match play less time, and then, yeah, it's short time, so it's okay.
