On Hannah Green, leader at 9-under par (2-under 70 on Saturday)

Dan Hicks – “Hannah Green has led throughout. She has another lead on this Saturday night, but it is down to 1.”

Stupples – “I think If I’m Hannah, I’m trying to turn the narrative around to make it so that I’m the underdog and people aren’t expecting me to win, so I can play with a little more freedom.”

Stupples – “She has been so disciplined with everything she has done on the golf course. She has stuck to her routine, kept to her process and really took advantage of holes that really I don’t think she should have been taking advantage of. It has been very impressive.

Gary Koch – “If I was a trailing player I’d be thinking in terms of that she has yet to prove that she can win. But the way she has handled herself today has been very impressive.”

Arron Oberholser – “She kind of got away with a round today. She definitely did what she needed to do to put a score on the board. It looked a little shaky coming down the stretch. On 16, 17 and 18 I saw a putter that wasn’t the same putter earlier in the round with her.”

Amanda Blumenherst – “It felt like a major on a Sunday. A battle between Green and Jutanugarn. They matched each other with birdies and shot for shot. It felt like they were the two competing in this and now there is only a 1-shot margin between the two.”

On Ariya Jutanugarn, 2nd at 8-under par (4-under 68 on Saturday)

Stupples – “When she is on form, she is good across the board. Yes she hits the ball long. Yes she putts well but also she is particularly gifted with her wedge game as well.”

Stupples – “She loves the kids that come out and watch her play.”

Arron Oberholser – “She showed incredible patience today. The irons were fantastic. Her front nine was great and she really showed her patience on the back nine.”
