The Highlights


Quotable

“I love the vibe of a major. It makes you feel so blessed to be out here. But as a tournament, when I step up and hit a shot, it’s the same thing as if I’m on the driving range. I do what I have to do and stick to my routine and play my game.”
Danielle Kang

“I feel very good right now. My shot and my putting, very good the last couple of weeks so I have confidence. You know, it’s a major tournament. It’s very biggest for me, but I’m ready for the final round. I practiced a lot and training a lot, and mental training, too.”
Chella Choi
