The Cut - - 2ND TEE -

“I didn’t to­tally cry-cry but I kind of got a lit­tle over­whelmed, and I kind of felt tears com­ing when [caddy] Jason said, ‘En­joy the mo­ment.’” Ly­dia Ko on ap­proach­ing the 18th green know­ing her first ma­jor win was in the bag

“I was just try­ing to fo­cus on one shot at a time and think­ing about my game. That re­ally helped me to­day, it makes it much more sim­ple than think­ing about the whole round.” Ly­dia dis­cusses her think­ing dur­ing that fi­nal round

“The funny thing is she missed maybe a cou­ple of make­able putts, but it was pretty much a per­fect round of golf. She hit ba­si­cally ev­ery green. I think she missed two fair­ways, just by a yard or two and she putted phe­nom­e­nally well. Her strat­egy was good. It was her time.” Ly­dia’s coach David Leadbetter

“I didn’t ex­pect I was go­ing to cry. A lot of emo­tion has come out be­cause I’ve been so close so many times and fallen short. To be able to play the way I did, es­pe­cially with Jor­dan in my group, I could tell that he was the favourite. Just to be able to fin­ish the way I did was amaz­ing.” Jason Day af­ter win­ning his maiden ma­jor

“I’m by far play­ing the best golf of my life. Just the syn­ergy be­tween my golf swing right now and what I’ve done with my body is work­ing. I’m hit­ting it a long, long way. I feel like the ac­cu­racy has pulled in. I feel like Jor­dan Spi­eth with how I’m putting. It’s a good feel­ing.” Day af­ter win­ning The Bar­clays
