Danielle Kang speaking with NBC’s Steve Sands following her victory
Danielle Kang – “I just trusted in my game and I didn’t worry about anything else. It is all about believing in yourself and being confident and that is what I did.”

On Brooke Henderson, runner-up at 12-under par (5-under par 66 on Sunday)
Stupples – “I’m not sure that any player has more heart in terms of wanting to win than she does.”
Koch – “Birdie-birdie finish, very impressive.”
Hicks – “Some players have that flair, and Brooke Henderson is one of them.”
Kay Cockerill – “Brooke and Brittany are making a good team.”

Brooke Henderson speaking with Golf Channel’s Lisa Cornwell following her round
Brooke Henderson – “I played great all week and I came so close. Came down to those last two holes to make it really close. I would have liked to have made one or two more putts on the back nine. It was a great week for me. There was a little more pressure coming in to this week. Knowing that I won last year, I really wanted to do it again. I gave myself the best opportunity to do that. Unfortunately, I just came up a little bit short.”

On Chella Choi, 3rd place at 10-under par (even-par 71 on Sunday)
Rolfing – “She has driven the ball nicely today, just hasn’t holed any putts.”
Stupples – “She just didn’t make the putts that she needed to in order to hang in there with Danielle.”
