Quotes from the Leader

“I just have to be myself. I feel like when you’re kind of in this position you can kind of try to do things that normally you wouldn’t do and just got to have fun out there and be myself and see what happens.”
-Daniel Berger (-10) on his 36-hole lead

“Sometimes par is a wonderful score. It’s a real major, it’s like playing the U.S. Open or whatever where par is a good score. So don’t blame guys when they play for the middle of the green here and there because there’s some long holes out there, some tough holes where most of the guys would be extremely happy to be in the middle of the green. That’s what you have to do at times.”
-Bernard Langer (-2) defending the conservative play

“I just said ‘hey, just go out and enjoy it, and don’t worry about what everybody else does. Just focus on the shot you need to hit’. That’s all I can do, just try my best and have fun. I can’t control what somebody else does so it’s important for me to focus on my game.”
-Lydia Ko (-2), leader at the SPMG Women’s LPGA
