"This year I think I played only one or two tournaments back-to-back, so that's a whole different thing where I need to play three or four weeks in a row and only a one-week break. Next year, obviously I need to perform well, but it's more about learning and getting more experience."
"It's helped me kind of get my mind off golf and get my mind off the whole pro thing," she said. "That's been a huge help. I couldn't practice as much as I wanted to because of the studies, so I guess it's just balance."
