On the Gators’ finish at the Windy City Classic:
“I’m happy for the team to post one of the lower rounds of the day. We had a slow start, but we played really solid through the middle of the round. We always want to win, and we are not satisfied with fourth. But it sure is exciting to see this team in action. They are so very talented. We have a lot of exciting times ahead of us.”
