Karrie Webb

Karrie, congratulations on the Australian honour you received on Australia Day, you must be very proud? Humbled?

Webb: Yes, very honoured and very humbled. Just even to be considered for an Order of Australia medal, you know, I couldn’t be believe that and then once I found out I was, you know, (mic change), I really couldn’t quite believe it, I knew it was going to be announce on Australia day and really still couldn’t quite believe it.

You look extremely fit, (to use a football term), what have you done in your pre-season work? You’ve worked hard?

Webb: Yeah, I’ve worked pretty hard this off season. It’s easier to do when we have such a long off season, to sorta get into it and not worry about when your body’s sore, how it’s affecting your golf swing. But, I had a few little things that I needed to work on, just, as I get older I guess, you know, as I get older the travel and all the tournaments take a bit more wear and tear on your body.

Karrie, seeing as we’re talking about how fit you are, Bob Tuohy believes you’ve still got a few major’s left in you, what are your thoughts on that?

Webb: Well, I hope so. I think I’m still as good a player as I’ve ever been. It’s not a matter of dialling them up I suppose, it’s putting everything together at the right time and being in the right position to that. I definitely hope that’s in my future, I know I’m capable of it.

Karrie, new decade – a decade ago you were supreme in the world – are you looking for 2010/2011, trying to emulate that?

Webb: Yeah, I wouldn’t have any complaints about that what-so-ever. Um, I think obviously ’99, 2000, 2001 was a great three year stretch for me. You know, I’d love to be able to emulate that sort of golf, consistent golf, I think when you’re winning that much people just look at the wins but they don’t look at how many times I had a chance to in those three years. I think that’s what it boils down to for me; I need to get back to that consistency, because you’re not going to win every time you have a chance to win. Giving yourself five or six chances a year, you know, you might not pull one off, even though you’ve given yourself five or six chances. You know, 10 years ago I was giving myself 15, 18 chances to win, you know, anywhere in between 6 and 15-18 would be nice.

Karrie, does it make you feel old that this is now your third decade playing golf?

Webb: Well, it actually, last week there was a HSBC, does a caddy of the year party and one of the caddy of the year, one of the caddies got up and was doing a little stand up joke telling and said that if Julie Inkster, cause she was in contention, if she’d won, she would have won a tournament in four decades. And was like ‘four decades…’, then I was like ‘I guess..this is my third decade’, you know, that just sounds an insane amount of time. So, yeah, I’ve played in the Australian Master’s all but two times it’s been run.

The two at Palm Meadow’s you missed?
Webb: No, I played one at Palm Meadow’s as an amateur, then missed one as an amateur when it was here.

Karrie, can you compare the person of 10 years ago with the person you are today and how do you compare the player of a decade ago with the player of today?
Webb: Well, I think obviously as a person, going from 25 to 35, I’ve just grown up. Um, I think, you know, I have a better understanding of who I am as a person, um, and more comfortable in my own skin, um and more comfortable in this room than I was 10 years ago. You know, I probably understand your job and what my job is when I come in here a little more than I did back then. And then as a player, I think…ar..well, obviously I was the best player in the world 10 years ago, so, I’d say the difference was, I’m probably don’t have, I’m not on top of the world, I don’t have that sort of supreme confidence that I had 10 years ago. I don’t think I’m any less of a player. You know, I think it would only take to get on a role similar to that for my level of confidence to be back where it was 10 years ago.

Is your confidence coming up after the last couple of weeks?

Webb: Yeah, I was very pleased with the way I played in Thailand, last week, you know, obviously I played well in Thailand so my expectation were raised for last week, but… I was a little disappointed with last week; it was just a little bit up and down. I got on quite a few good runs then I’d just throw, you know, in a big number that really stopped any of the good momentum that I had going.
Webb: Yeah, on the Friday round, then I had it going again on Sunday and threw in another double there, just bad timing, um…you know, I think it’s just one of those things that happen’s in golf. I think, you know, it just wasn’t meant, that was just meant to happen. Obviously, the good stuff I’d done the first week, there’s still some room to…stuff that I need to work on and that showed up last week.

You said you wanted to practice today, is this going to set you back a little bit?

Webb: Oh, I don’t think so, I didn’t necessarily have to get on the golf course, and I’ve gone around there plenty of times to know how it’s probably going to play. Um, but just, I don’t get to see Triggsy every week, so, you know, that’s the only reason I practice, if I can get to hit some balls with him, but, you know, I’ve got this week and next week so I’m not too hard pressed about it.

Karrie, talking wear and tear, you’ve had two physio sessions today and another booked in tomorrow, any back problems or injuries?

Webb: No, just, I had a bit of tweak… in a shoulder…when I woke up Sunday morning, and then obviously travelling Sunday night and lifting luggage and stuff like that, it didn’t really calm down, so just getting it addressed and I knew Adam, I worked with him on the European Tour at the British Open last year so, I knew he was really good.

Karrie, this event and its schedule in previous years hasn’t always allowed the luxury of a couple of lead in events so does that leave you in a better position? I know you’ve previously won on your first hit-up on many occasions, how do you feel after those two tournaments?

Webb: Yeah, well I don’t have that excuse this year! No, it was funny starting in Thailand and Singapore without any tournaments under my belt, normally I’ve played here for a couple of weeks, so that’ll be great I think it will make the standard of golf this week and next, probably a lot better quality just because the last couple of years this was the first tournament for just about everyone in the field so I think that will be good.

Karrie, with the changes in the LPGA calendar, do you see the Australian events having potential to slot in there somewhere?

Webb: Well, I hope so. I think women’s golf is not as big as we would love it to be, we’re gaining on that. Because each tour is working towards being bigger and better it serves a purpose to us to compete against one another, especially at the start of the year when there’s a lot of open weeks so I think if the schedule stayed fairly similar over the next few years I think it would be great for the Australian tournaments. Even before or after tournaments that are in Asia.

Karrie, have you been asked the question that every male player in Australia recently has been asked? What do you think of the Tiger Woods?

Webb: I don’t know. I’m probably as surprised as everybody else I guess.

A lot of the girls who come down from Europe say they have heard good things about the tournament. The number one person they could go to for that tip-off would be you. Do you do some subtle recruiting when you’re in the States when players ask you about the quality of the tournaments in Australia?

Webb: Yeah. For sure. And obviously because the LPGA schedule has been a lot weaker in the beginning part of the year, I’ve had a lot of girls over the last couple of years come up and ask me who should they contact about getting an invite and ask me about performance. I’m more than happy to give them great advice to come down here. I don’t think a lot of girls would choose to holiday down here in the middle their career so it’s a good chance for them to get down here and play some good golf course and get to experience Australia.

In the specifics of what you and Ian are working on at the beginning of this year: major changes or just a couple of little things that tend to creep their way in?

Webb: Yeah, nothing major. Because I haven’t seen him from the beginning of November to the end of January, I was surprised at how many bad habits I had gotten in to. I was back in Florida for few weeks in January thinking that I would escape the Queensland rain, which it didn’t rain in January or February, but it was really windy and cold so just practicing in the wind I developed a couple of bad habits. But yeah, nothing new to be working on.

Having the three major winners here, does that fire you up because even though you might invite them down it’s still you’re (inaudible)?

Webb: Yeah, well I think it’s great. This tournament has a great history and there aren’t many women’s events in the world that have been as long running. So the fact that we’ve got such a great field here this week and three of the four major champions last year, I think it’s great for Women’s golf and it’s great for Australian golf to have such a great field and I don’t think the government handed out any money so that’s a good things too. They’re down here because they want to play and the field is of a very high quality and of good standard.

I’m sure you’ve preoccupied yourself with your game in the states, but how do you see the direction of Australian women’s golf when there are so many more players making their way onto the LPGA and Ladies’ Europeans Tour.

Webb: I think it’s growing, but the standard coming out is of high quality. I think the unfortunate part is that anyone who shows any promise is immediately compared to me, and that’s, not to pat myself on the pack, is pretty big shoes to fill, and a lot of pressure that young players don’t really need. even playing on Rachel Hetherington for most of my career, Rachel’s won nine times on the LPGA but most people wouldn’t know that, and it’s just been overshadowed by my career which I feel bad about, because Rachel’s had a great career of her own, and if we had 5 girl come out and win 9 or 10 events on the LPGA or 9 or 10 events in Europe, it should be celebrated, not compared with ‘well it’s not as good as Karrie Webb’s career’ because 9 or 10 tournaments, even just to win one tournament, is a great accomplishment, and I think there’s a lot of young girls with great potential, and I think if we just encourage them the right way so they don’t feel any pressure to be anyone but themselves I think, in the next 5 years we’ll see a lot of Australian success.

Karrie, you do support juniors, the Karrie Webb series for the leading amateur, is that something you feel strongly about, supporting?

Webb: I think I’ve actually gotten as much or more out of it as the girls. I’ve really enjoyed being involved with that, I wish I had of done it earlier in my career but I think doing it when I’ve done it I was in a position to be more involved and not so self-absorbed in my own career. I’ve really enjoyed it and I hope that those girls are sitting are sitting up here in however many years and talking about that experience as something that helped them with their career.

Brittany Lincicome, Anna Nordqvist, Eun Hee Ji.

Anna, welcome all three, congratulations on last year. Just a funny little question first up, Anna how tall are you?
Nordqvist: I’ve never heard that before! I’m 6.1 feet, 180cm.
Hee Ji: 162cm

Brittany you’ve been here before.

Lincicome: 2 years ago.

Did you like your result 2 years ago?

Lincicome: I don’t remember what I did yesterday, let alone 2 years ago! I know it was great, I remember kangaroos hopping around, obviously I wasn’t here, and I was in Melbourne. I remember it being very beautiful, we stayed down on the beach 2 years ago when I stayed down here, and I remember it being very pretty, not raining.

Anna, this is your first time?

Nordqvist: Yes, this is my first time here. I’m very excited, I’ve heard a lot about the tournament, a lot about the course, so I look forward to this week a lot.

Hee Ji: Here is my third time.

And your experiences from your previous two times. What are your memories from those times?

Hee Ji: The people are friendly here, and the views are very nice.

Anna when you were deciding to come down here, what were the other players saying about this tournament and this golf course, did you talk to other players about their experiences out here before you made your decision?

Nordqvist: Well absolutely, you hear about a lot of tournaments. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia I’ve been to Adelaide once, I’m going to Melbourne next week, always wanted to go. It’s the atmosphere here in Australia, it’s a good course, you get treated very well.

Was Adelaide the (inaudible)?

Nordqvist: I played the World AM, 2008 in Adelaide, Obviously good memories from that tournament where Sweden won. I think we played at The Grange.

Who else played for Sweden in that tournament?

Nordqvist: Pernilla Lindberg and Caroline Hedwall.

Was it a shock to win the US Open this year?

Hee Ji: Yes, pretty exciting. I was very nervous at the last hole. When I made my last putt it was something I’d never dreamed of.

Brittany, it was a breakthrough for you last year, great things have been predicted for you for quite a long time now. Some people have asked whether you really want it or not. You have the talent, but you appear to, not ‘waste’ the talent, but you don’t pursue it as much as other people. Is that a fair thing to say, now having won that first major, and a spur for you in the future?

Lincicome: It’s definitely a huge confidence booster, you always dream, growing up, of winning a major. Some girls go through their whole career never ever winning a tournament, so it was pretty amazing to hit the shot that I did hit on the 18th hole and to overcome all of the obstacles of getting there and actually winning my first major. To be so young, it was a huge accomplishment and good for my confidence knowing that I can do it, that I can hit the shot under pressure. It helps me move forward and obviously with new goals for this year. I’m really looking forward to it.

What are those goals?

Lincicome: Top ten on the money list. I think my closest was either 12rth or 13th. So top ten, and I would like a two-win season. A one-win is obviously good enough, but I would like two wins this season.

If I could ask all three, what has changed for you since winning those majors last year?

Lincicome: I think I’m still the same person, just a little bit more media here and there and people calling me a ‘major champion’, which is obviously very flattering and very exciting. Just for my confidence inside, otherwise it’s pretty much the same for me.

Nordqvist: Well obviously, my major win changed my career a lot. I didn’t have (inaudible) on the LPGA tour, which I had always dreamed about playing, so obviously helped me get in to a couple more tournaments, got off to a good start in my professional career, got some confidence, just making me more comfortable out there.

Hee Ji: I am more confident than before, and people recognise me much more than before. I am really looking forwards to playing well this year and next year.

Anna, Can you believe how quickly you’ve come up the rankings, and how good your year was?

Nordqvist: Well, I’m fortunate to be out there playing with the best players in the world. I’ve been working hard for a lot of years but you never know what to expect. I had a really good year last year, so obviously I’m very happy where I’m at. I’m just going to keep working hard. It’s a dream come true playing out here, with so many great players around.

Have you got a specific goal this year?

Nordqvist: Well no, I think it’s always hard to put resource goals; competition is very tough out there, obviously if you win once, you want to win twice. I’m just going to do my best to keep improving, keep working hard with my coach, and try to put myself in the best position out there to win.

Do you think you’re under a bit more pressure to do even better than your rookie year?

Nordqvist: Well, I think, you’ve got to be patient. I had a great rookie year, last year. Obviously there’s more media, more attention, and I think more people expect me to play well. But you just have to take it a tournament at a time, just work slowly. I’m only 23 this year, so I have a lot of years ahead of me and I just think I can’t really put too many expectations on, just go out there and try your best.

All three of you, who were your idols growing up?

Lincicome: Ours could be the same, because she is from Sweden. For me, Annika Sorenstam was obviously a huge role model even before I came on tour, and then when I came on tour. Just everything she’s accomplished. I was always in awe of how she could work the golf ball both ways. One tee shot she could hit a draw, the next shot she could hit a cut, just how many shots she had in her bag it was very impressive to see obviously with her getting much more into fitness. I think our whole tour; everybody on tour now works out pretty hard. Fitness is a huge part of the game now. She’s been a huge inspiration.

Obviously the same for you, Anna?

Nordqvist: Yes, Obviously I watched a lot of Annika Sorenstam growing up. To see all of the hard work and dedication she put in. I look up to her even more now since I’m out on tour myself, you really understand how huge she was and what she accomplished in that tough competition.

Hee Ji: Obviously Se Ri Pak, but my idol was also Annika Sorenstam. I started watching Se Ri Pak, and watching her games, and that was my first golf experience.

Question for Brittany, and also Anna, are you still working with Pia (Nillson) and Vision 54? I know you are Anna. Is that correct?

Lincicome: Yes, Vision 54 is a huge part of, I believe, what has helped me move to the next step. Anytime I had a bad hole or even a bad shot I would get down on myself and it would take 3 or 4 holes before I could turn it back around and normally 3 or 4 bogeys in a row before I could turn it back around. You can be mad about the shot for a few seconds but then you really have to let it go and move on and worry about the next shot. So they’ve been a huge help and I can’t wait to see them in San Diego. It’s been a while!

Nordqvist: Actually, I don’t work with either Pia or Vision 54.

Hee Ji, when you got back to Korea after winning the US Open which is huge, obviously, what was the reaction?

Hee Ji: I had so many interviews. There were people out there when I arrived at the airport when I arrived. I had so many interviews the whole week, it was interview after interview.

Brittany you don’t seem to take things too seriously, I see you’ve got Barbie on the side [of your shirt] there, and yet you have a big truck that you drive in with 24 inch wheels.

Lincicome: I do. Barbie is a new sponsor this year, which a lot of the girls laugh at with me and my truck and everything. But there is a girly side to me, I like dressing up and wearing the 4 or 5 inch heels and going out at night. But my truck, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world, and I have a boat. I like to be outside, and I like to get the best of both worlds. But yes, I don’t normally take things too seriously.

Anna, how do you view the field this week?

Nordqvist: I think there’s a lot of players, with Karrie Webb coming home to Australia is one good thing. There are a lot of good players here, so I am just going to have to keep playing my best. Everyone else will do the same, and it’s going to be a tough competition. You’ll have to play good to finish strong here.

Just a supplementary question, have you played on any course similar to this? Have you seen the course yet?

Nordqvist: I haven’t seen the course yet.

You didn’t even go out in the rain and have a walk around?

Nordqvist: No, I’ll do it after.

Brittany, how do you view the field this week?

Lincicome: I believe I heard Katherine say earlier that this is the best field they’ve ever had here which is amazing. I love when all of the top players can go to events so we can help support every tournament. You always hear of girls withdraw before the US Opens or the big events and it always makes me sad because I know how the tournament feels not having the best players in their field. So it’s nice to see all of the girls coming to Australia, and what a better place, besides the rain, but it can’t rain forever. So when that goes away, Australia is a very beautiful place and I’m definitely going to go and see the kangaroos and koalas before I leave.

Hee Ji: There are a lot of top players here, I practiced in Australia for two months, and I’m very confident. I’m looking forward to playing well.

Where did you practice in Australia?

Hee Ji: Parkwood. Close to here.

The last two months before you went to Thailand?

Hee Ji: Yes, before Thailand. Starting in January for six weeks.

So you came down here and had a look did you?

Hee Ji: Yes.

Do you have a coach in Australia as well?

Hee Ji: Yes, I am working with Ian Triggs.

Could I ask you girls, when you win a major you’re allowed to treat yourself with a little present, or a big present. Brittany, what did you splurge on after your major?

Lincicome: I didn’t buy anything. I’m pretty boring. I did buy a house 2 months ago, so I guess I just waited a bit longer until the off season and bought a house. But other than that, nothing.

Nordqvist: I did the same. I didn’t really get anything right after. But I did recently move to Florida, so I bought myself a condo, so I guess that was my treat.

Hee Ji: After winning the US Open I went out with my friends a lot more, I didn’t practice that much last year, but I practice more now.

Did you pay the bills when you went out?

Hee Ji: Yes!

Katherine Hull

Do you think Webb is capable of winning her 7th title this year?

Hull: No if I’ve got anything to do with it.

Katherine you came here last year off two runner up finishes, I don’t know whether your form is quite as good this year, what are your thoughts?

Hull: Well, I had another two runner-up finishes in the New South Wales Open and the Canberra Classic so obviously Thailand and Singapore weren’t great weeks but yup hitting it well and think i play pretty well on Queensland greens, so I’m looking forward to this week.

What sort of mark would you give yourself after tournaments last year?

Hull: On a scale of 1 – 10, 10 being good and 1 not so good. Probably a 6 or 7 right now.

And what would you have given yourself at this stage last year?

Hull: Probably an 8

What’s the difference this year?

Hull: Woking on a few swing changes and yeah not 100% comfortable with it yet. So, it’s probably going to take a few months but it’s not to say I can’t shot low numbers at all but it’s just I’m lacking a little consistency right now.

You spent time with Steve, (inaudible) with this or does he come to you?

Hull: He’s been up in Queensland in January and then saw me play in New South Wales.

Explain the change, Katherine?

Hull: Yeah, basically I did a 3D swing analysis. This is back in January; they hooked me up to all sorts of gizmos and found out that my sequence was off. I actually lead with my upper body as oppose to my lower body on the down swing and as I lose a lot of power and so trying to re-sequence that and get my hips to kind of lead the down swing and hopefully it’ll end up giving me some more distance which will be nice, but probably going to take a about 6 months.

Is that something new or a habit that crept in over the last 12months since you were playing well?

Hull: I think I’ve probably done it since I’ve started golf back when I was 12. But, yeah, fortunately it won’t take me 15 years to get rid of.

How much more length do you think you will get out of all that?

Hull: It’s hard to say, but probably at least a club and driver may even go a bit further. I mean that’s not why I’m making the change by any means but it will be nice to get that little extra length.

You do rely so much on your short game though don’t you, which is excellent…

Hull: It’s getting better yes. My putting always been probably my strength so, as long as that stays the best part of my game I’ll be happy but I mean it’s certainly nice to hit an eight iron into the green as oppose to a seven iron or a six iron.

Katherine, you ran away with this tournament last year, making swing changes, some players don’t always agree, they can work or throw you game out, do you have any concerns about changing too much about your game?

Hull: No, I think the thing for me , is because, I never really was a technical player and certainly college I didn’t do a lot of work on my golf swing and didn’t get caught up on mechanics. I think for me, when I do step on to the golf course, I tend to just play golf and scramble really even, I mean, my ball striking hasn’t been the best part of my game but I’ve always known how to get the ball in the hole and if I can stay in that kind of mind set, just scramble and grind it out then that’s half the battle, cause golf is certainly just a sport at the end of the day, it’s not necessarily how you did it.

If you get it technically right, what sort of improvement would you be hoping to get in your game? Five percent, 10 percent?

Hull: Yeah, I mean, I guess the number we’re always concerned with is scoring average so dropping that, I think the key is going to be consistency and getting myself into contention more as oppose to just sporadically having good tournaments. That’ll be nice because that’s what we work hard for.

Katherine, did you set yourself any goals this year?

Hull: Er, I have, yeah. Some I’m keeping to myself and others I will talk about. So guess, last year my goals was to finish top 10 on the LPG money list and so a bit distracted and that didn’t happen so this year again top 10 will be the goal and as a result I think my world ranking will improve as well but world ranking, I think, is a little hard to go off because it changes obviously every week and there are so many tours involved so I’m not getting too caught up on that at this point in time.

Do you care to elaborate on the distractions?

Hull: Yeah, um, I bought a house, I fired a caddy in the middle of a major -well start of a major and yeah those are two very big distractions.

How tough was it fire the caddy?

Hull: Well, at that point in time, not very hard because I was about to strangle him (laughs). John, the guy I fired, he’d be great for me for over a year and that was the last thing I wanted to do, was to hurt a friend and to put him through grief. So, it was hard in a sense because we did have so much success together but at the same time it was time.

And you’re happy with Vern (Tess)?

Hull: Yeah, new guy on the bag, Vern. From what I understand he’s great. he’s from Ireland so I have a few issues with the accent, yea he’s funny and I think he knows my personality more so than any of my previous caddy’s and knows how to react to me and handle me so I’ve loved every day working with him.

Katherine, how important is that caddy/player relationship; obviously it has a fair impact?

Hull: It’s huge; they spend more time with us than anyone else. You’re out there 6 days a week, 8 hours a day with them. You know, a lot of people do refer to it as like a marriage. And the key is to find the right personality match for you. I don’t think we’re easy to deal with… on a normal day let alone on a day when our hormones are racing! So I take my hat off to the caddies who deal with not only just one player but there’s a 140 odd of us out there sometimes. But they’ve got to know when.. to be quiet, when to step in, sometimes girls rely on them for coaching, sports psychologist, punching bag, whatever! So there’s so many different hats’ that they wear, it’s not a easy job so when you find a good one you obviously want to hang onto it as long it can.

On this week, has the wet weather affected your preparation for the tournament? Obviously not ideal…

Hull: No, It’s not ideal but it’s out of our control…everyone is in the same boat, like literally boat, we’ll probably need it (laughs), yeah, I mean obviously this morning I was going to play 9 holes and do some practice but that’ll get pushed back to tomorrow hopefully and yeah, I mean no one’s got an advantage over someone else at this point, we’ll all just, kind of, going to be a bit late in starting.

Did you try and find an indoor driving range this morning?

Hull: No, I think the whole Gold Coast is in the same boat. I thought about going up to Noosa but we had some rain up there too.

Katherine, you were applauded coming into this press conference, is that one of the first time’s you’ve heard that? Just walking in here getting clapped?

Hull: Yes, it was. I didn’t even know how this was going to pan out so I would have probably just strolled in here without any instruction.

With that, obviously you’re going to be the centre of attraction, being defending champion, how does that sit with you?

Hull: I’m…I’m really happy with that actually, I’m stoked that i’m defending. I don’t feel like I’ve got any extra attention or that everyone will be watching me though because we’ve got that many great players in the field. I was with Jim Tucker yesterday from the Courier Mail and he said, in a way you’re the hunter but also the one doing the hunting, I said yeah, I guess that is pretty true, I mean this is the best field we’ve had in the history of tournament so… it’s not going to be an easy week to defend by any means.

We’re seeing some great players here. Katherine, what can we expect form Nordqvist?

Hull: I actually played with her on Sunday, in Singapore and she’s hitting the ball well and putting well so, I think she’ll probably put four good rounds together here and I wouldn’t be surprised if she was in contention come Sunday afternoon.

How is this course going to play differently compared to last year?

Hull: Obviously, it’s going to play longer with the amount of rain we’ve had, so that would tend to favour the longer hitters but you’ve still obviously got to get the ball in the hole, so, yeah I don’t think the scores are going to be as low, based on the conditions but I think you can still make birdies out there for sure.

Katherine, how much do you think local knowledge, I mean obviously you’ve played here a lot, players like Nordqvist all the other girls who haven’t played here, do you agree on the greens there’s going be a big advantage to player’s who’ve played here, as the other girls aren’t going to get much preparation?

Hull: Right, I think… Queenslanders definitely have a bit of an advantage knowing the greens and the type of grass we have here and I mean Karrie has proved time and time again, the more you play out here and more comfortable you get on the golf course and the more likely you are to win. So, I think the girls who have played here before definitely have a head start but it’s not a super tough golf course, so, I mean… anyone could win it, you just got to make as many birdies as you can and same old story and keep the mistakes to the low.
