Flash Interview

THE MODERATOR: Thanks so much. Leona coming from seven strokes back, making putts from seemingly everywhere today. How would you describe the round overall?

LEONA MAGUIRE: Yeah, played really nice. My caddie has been talking a lot about patience this week and just committing to my targets. Did that really well today and got a few rolling early on, got some momentum and, yeah, nice to see a few drop.

Q. When you walked over well aware of the forecast already for tomorrow, you joked it's Irish weather for tomorrow. Sounds like it's setting up perfectly for you. What sort of adjustments will you have to make in those types of conditions?

LEONA MAGUIRE: I mean, we'll have to wait to see how bad it gets. Maybe a little rain, a little wind. Nothing I'm not used to from Ireland. Nice to get a really low round under my belt today and just try to go out and do the same tomorrow.

Q. You said yesterday you feel like you're playing a little bit under the radar here not having all the pressure of those season-ending awards like some of the other players. How will you try to use that to your advantage here tomorrow?

LEONA MAGUIRE: Just do what I did today. Try to hit really good shots and hopefully hit a few putts. We'll see where Lydia gets at the end of the day, but ultimately just go out and play as well as I possibly can, and especially if there's bad weather, that's all you can control. Looking forward to one last walk of the season tomorrow.

Q. Great playing today. It was fun to watch. Good luck tomorrow?
