LPGA: What are your thoughts on defending your title at another golf course?
Gal: I think it takes a bit of pressure of. The course is redesigned, so everyone will have to learn how to play it.

LPGA: What is the key to playing well at La Costa?

LPGA: How does it match with your game?
Gal: I’ve worked hard in the off-season to increase my fairway hits, so we will find out if the work paid off!

: What are your favorite holes?
Gal: I don’t really have favorite holes, unless there is a spectacular view on a certain hole. I treat every hole the same.

LPGA: What are you looking forward to that week?
Gal: I look forward to the experience of defending my title and learning about the course changes. My family and some friends will be out watching as well, which I love.
