Quick Quotes

Q. Gabriela, great playing today. As expected, Cypress played tougher than Jackrabbit. What are your thoughts on your opening round today?

GABRIELA RUFFELS: Yeah, was really happy with it. I was just excited to get it going and can't believe the first round is already done.

Yeah, I was 1-over on the back nine, which is my front nine, so happy with the way I could bring it home.

Q. Even round through round one; 18 holes in today. As an amateur playing in this championship, what does it mean to be this high up on the leaderboard through the first round?

GABRIELA RUFFELS: Yeah, it's really cool. I mean, I'm not really a leaderboard watcher, but just trying to go out there, see how good I can do, and definitely happy with the round.

Q. This championship has a ton of history. Do you believe that this is a tournament that an amateur can win?

GABRIELA RUFFELS: Yeah, for sure. I think one has won one one time, right, in the history? It can be done obviously, so it's still early days.

Just keep going.
