GO: THOMSON, MACLAREN (GBR) - 'We were as pumped up as we could be'

GLASGOW - Comments from Meghan MacLAREN and Michele THOMSON (GBR) after they lost 5&4 to Justine DREHER and Manon MOLLE (FRA) in the semifinals of the women's team golf at Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course on Sunday.


On the rainy, cold weather:

"It didn't affect us too much, we are used to this. Meghan (MacLAREN) played pretty well and I didn't back her up as well as I could have. It's our first defeat and we are just going to try and pick ourselves up for the afternoon and hopefully pick up a bronze medal.

On whether there was any adverse reaction after winning the silver medal in the mixed team event on Saturday:

"No I don't think so. We were as pumped up as we could be. We won a silver medal yesterday but we wanted a gold today. Hopefully though we can pick up the bronze."


On the way they played:

"We've played great all week. Today we just made a couple more mistakes than we have been doing. The French girls played unbelievably all day, they didn't give us anything. That's hard to play against. We fought well for a long time but we gave ourselves too much to do."

On winning the bronze:

"If we walk away from this with two medals then it's going to be pretty good going."
