Quick Quotes

THE MODERATOR: Here with Sei Young Kim after her first round here at the CME Group Tour Championships. Take us through your round a little bit today and what was working really well for you out there.

SEI YOUNG KIM: I played all the morning. Not all the morning. Just about 10:00 a.m.

At the time it was a little stronger wind. Yeah, I just focus on the first and the second, third hole. It's really tough, so I focus on trying to par.

Then after through the hole 4 we got the down wind, so it's getting easier. I was able to make a couple of birdie, and I got good momentum, so I played very good today.

THE MODERATOR: What was the best part of your game today? Was it your approach shots, off the tee, putting?

SEI YOUNG KIM: Today I'm putting really well. I made birdies all -- I made a path. Yeah, I'm very satisfied with that.

Keep working a little more, practice. Yeah, hopefully the rest three rounds are the same as today.

THE MODERATOR: As a past champion here and someone who has played really well, what do you like so much about playing on this course and being here?

SEI YOUNG KIM: I mean, I have a good memory, so it's kind of positive to me when I play. It's helped me a lot.

Then I like Florida in especially winter season because really good weather. Yeah, that's why I play.

THE MODERATOR: You weren't too cold this morning? It was a little chilly.

SEI YOUNG KIM: Yeah, it's a little bit chilly, but it's getting warmer, so it's good.

THE MODERATOR: What are you hoping to take into tomorrow's round? You'll have a new partner. What did you learn today that you want to take into tomorrow?

SEI YOUNG KIM: Just keep the same what I planned. Yeah, just everything, focus on it. Yeah, whatever happens, I just keep doing it until the end of the hole. Yeah, that's the big -- yeah.
