Quick Quotes

Q. What was it like playing your first round of a U.S. Women's Open today?

GEMMA DRYBURGH: Yeah, it was good fun. I didn't hit it very well today, but I kind of scrambled my way around, which was good.

But yeah, great experience being here. The crowds are already good and we had an early tee time, so it was nice to see lots of people out there.

Q. How was the conditions out there with the course setup and how challenging was it?

GEMMA DRYBURGH: Yeah, it was great. You kind of have to be careful with some pins. Some pins can catch you out if you're not paying attention.

Yeah, there was one putt I had a three-putt and just kind of lost it on the low side and it can go a good six feet past, so you have to be kind of careful sometimes.

Q. How does the heat play as a factor out there?

GEMMA DRYBURGH: It wasn't too bad for us because we started a bit earlier, but it got a bit hot toward the end, but I used my sun umbrella, which was very helpful.

Q. What do you want to do this afternoon? Having the afternoon off and going into tomorrow, what do you hope to do?

GEMMA DRYBURGH: Yeah, I'll do some practice this afternoon to kind of get a good feeling in my swing again. I've been hitting it better the last couple weeks. I'm sure it won't be too far off. So yeah, I'll just do that and then hopefully just reset for tomorrow.
