“We ham and egged it very well,” said Kane a four-time winner on the LPGA Tour before her partner interjected.

“I mean she made nine, ten,” said Coe-Jones. “I don’t know how many she made. I helped her twice! When she needed a par, I was there.”

“Yes, and big ones,” replied Kane. “It’s more about momentum at the time and we kept the momentum going instead of falling back. On the tenth hole, I am on the green in two and didn’t putt very well. Dawn is in the fairway bunker and makes a hell of a four, and we needed that to keep us rolling. Then I followed up and birdied the next one. That is what it was about today.”
