Flash Interview

Q. Jin-Young Ko, 68 today. How was it out there today?

JIN-YOUNG KO: It was cold out there. I had rest time yesterday. It was a little bit -- it was good to me. I needed the rest. I had a great round today. I had a couple missed putts, but I finished good today.

Q. Birdies on two of your last three. Can you talk us through those?

JIN-YOUNG KO: Yeah. No. 16 and No. 18. No. 16 was a little bit downhill and right to left break. I wanted to make that putt, so I made it and I was happy. No. 17 was par. My 18th I started looking at the scoreboard. Leader's score was 3-under, I am 1-under, but I have to finish strong. I wanted to finish strong on the last hole, so I made it and I was happy.

Today was the first time I hit 68, so I was happy.

Q. What are your takeaways from the week?

JIN-YOUNG KO: Well, this week is my best finish at the U.S. Open, so I can play next week, as well. I'm really thankful. This season is too tough with coronavirus, so I want to say thanks to USGA and all the volunteers.
