Courtney Harter - University of Alabama
On her hole-in-one on 15...
I had about 185 yard to the hole, it was hole 15, and I hit a four (iron) and my coach told me to aim just to the left of the pin and I hit it exactly where I wanted to. It hit and started rolling down, I actually looked away and put my club in my bag and when I looked up, I actually didn't see it go in the hole, but my coach and everyone else did. It was pretty exciting, it was the first hole in one I've ever had.

On how she felt afterwards...
I was really shocked. I hit a good shot and thought it would be really close, but I didn't think it would go in. The hole looked really good to me. I birdied it on the first day, it almost went in and I two-putted it on the second day.

On struggling in the rest of the round...
I was struggling in the beginning of the round and then put a few strokes together and then struggled the rest of the round. When you have a bad hole you get that anxious feeling in your stomach and when you do something good you also lose your equilibrium so you have to calm yourself down just like you had a bad hole.

Arizona State University Head Coach
Thoughts on the day...
I'm very proud of my team for their tremendous amount of patience. They played with determination, they played smart and when they had challenges they embraced them and moved through.

On what she told them before the third round...
All of the things about this team that makes them who they are and reminding them of who they are and knowing that we were only 11 back. In the team competition that's not that much.

On what she'll say to them after the third day...
We're going to have a nice steak dinner, which is nice because they love meat. They've been playing well all year, it's going to be a dogfight, it's going to be a battle and it's going to be fun. That's what we came here for.



On play in the third round...
We have to play a lot better tomorrow than we did today. We just played bad, I don't even know what else to say. Nothing was going right, we didn't hit good shots, we didn't hit good puts, just not a good day.

On the preparation for the final round...
We'll talk about it. We need to get some stuff out and I want to hear their perspective, I want to hear what's going on. So we'll go get dinner and let things settle before talking about tomorrow.

It was both course management and execution. There were some glimmers. Stephanie got her round back and made some birdies, but overall we struggled.

On Jennifer Song...
She has a good strategy when she goes out. She's just a solid player, it doesn't seem like anything ever affects her she's very patient, one shot at a time. Obviously she made some good club selections and got a few birdies out there.

On her team's play in the third round...
Our overall goal was to improve each day and I know we moved up and are now in first. You just have to go out there and play this golf course. If the opportunity for birdies is out there you have to go get them. We're still going to have to play really great golf tomorrow to win this, we can't just go out and protect this.

Jennifer Song - USC
On her third round...
I wasn't trying to force myself out there, just play one shot at a time, give it my best and if there is a chance for a birdie I said thank you and if there is a chance for a par I say thank you again. Definitely this course is one of the toughest I've played in my life. The greens are fast, the pin positions are incredibly hard and we have to play a smart game out there.

On her feelings of her team's chances to win... Definitely, we are mentally and physically prepared. We've been preparing for this event for one year and all of my teammates are really ready and pumped up. We've been having a lot of second places and I think this is our chance to win.
