Q. You had a couple of hiccups to start off, but you straightened out on the back nine and are at 4-under-par.
YANI TSENG: Yeah, I had two bogeys after six holes. It was disappointing because I really couldn’t control my distance. But, after that, I got used to it and I was patience and tried to take every chance I got. I am very happy – I had a very good comeback on the back nine – 5-under, so it was really nice.
Q. When you were practicing, what were your thoughts about course?
YANI TSENG: Sometimes you go 10 percent farther, sometimes you go 15 percent farther, so it’s hard to control. So, just try to get – you have to do very good math this week.
Q. What did you do well on back nine?
YANI TSENG: I did good with my irons – my second shots so I had lots of good chances to make birdies and I made my putts. I think, very good today, was my putting.
Q. Do you have any strategy for tomorrow? Did you learn anything from your front nine?
YANI TSENG: Not really. Number six, I had a chance to get on in two and I made a big mistake on that hole. So, I don’t have any strategy, just continue what I’m doing today on the back nine.
Q. How do you feel about this season so far and looking ahead to the upcoming events?
YANI TSENG: I think it’s a very good schedule for the first half of the season. Because it’s like three or four tournaments, you get a week off; two or three tournaments, you get a week off. It’s like you can work a lot more on your game and more relaxed. I think it’s very good for the LPGA that most of the people will be playing nearly every tournament.
