On Pernilla Lindberg, current co-leader at 12-under par (5-under par 67 on Friday)
Kay Cockerill – “All of these moments and all of these memories the first two days are going to keep building her foundation with more confidence.”
Cockerill – “Her short game touch is excellent and she is hitting her putts dead center.”
Grant Boone – “Everything from Pernilla Lindberg today has been impressive.”

On Sung Hyun Park, current co-leader at 12-under par (8-under par 64 on Friday)
Karen Stupples – “When you see Sung Hyun Park’s name going really low at the top of the leaderboard, it is a bit of a warning shot across the bow to everybody out there playing because she normally doesn’t let up.”
Stupples – “She has played tremendous. When you think about her shots all day – from the fairway I might add – they were so close to the hole and giving her so many opportunities.”

On Lexi Thompson, currently T13 at 4-under par (even-par 72 on Friday)
Stupples – “There is a resiliency that she showed today after going through a tough stretch. I think we have seen that before.”
Boone – “She is going to finish where she started at 4-under par, but it was an eventful Friday for Lexi Thompson.”
Stupples – “Today was a little small victory for Lexi. She overcame the hurdles in the middle of the round.”

On Michelle Wie, currently T31 at 2-under par (5-under par 67 on Friday)
Boone – “At one point yesterday it didn’t look so good for Michelle Wie to make it to the weekend, but she has battled.”

Michelle Wie speaking with Golf Channel’s Lisa Cornwell following her round
Michelle Wie – “I definitely saw one golf ball today. That was good. I just sat down every chance I could. My caddie helped me a lot out there. Just getting all of the numbers. I asked him to read every putt for me because I couldn’t see anything. I am going to see the doctor right now and just rest for the afternoon.”
Wie – “My caddie does a great job of keeping me going and he keeps saying, “Come on, one more shot, one more shot.” It is really great when the fans kind of keep you going as well too. They definitely give you energy out there.”
