Trump National Golf Club (Old Course), Bedminster, New Jersey, USA. 11th July, 2017.
1. 00:00 SOUNDBITE (English): Stu Francis, Chairman of the USGA Championship Committee: "I think we've already issued our statement on that discussion. We really are here to conduct a great golf championship. We were formed in 1894 to do that. We have 156 women playing in the championship who are excited about it. It's largest purse in women's golf. Our goal is to talk about the golf championship and we've put out our statement."
2. 00:30 SOUNDBITE (English): Matt Sawicki, Director of U.S. Women's and Senior Women's Open Championships: "There is a long association between the offices of the President and the game of golf. It is one in which many Presidents have had a passion for the game. And ultimately we think that when the President supports the game of golf, that's a good thing. I believe Mike Davis is on record as saying we've had three Presidents attend our Open Championships in the past, Presidents Harding, Ford and Clinton attended. If one more President choose to come, we would welcome the President."
3. 01:08 SOUNDBITE (English): Michelle Wie, 2014 U.S. Women's Open Champion: "I take my role as a female role model very seriously. This week is about the golf. The U.S. Open is our national championship. It is one of my favorite weeks of the year. So this week, you know, I really want to focus on the golf part and I want to hopefully inspire a lot of young women and women in general hopefully with my game. I think that the LPGA has done a great job of growing junior golf especially with LPGA girl's golf, PGA junior league. There's so many great places where junior golfers can grow now. I think that the under 18 girls is the fastest growing part of the game and I get excited about that. I'm excited for this week and hopefully a lot of people will come out and support."
Q. It doesn't concern you?
"I will not comment on any political part this week. This week is about the golf for me. I'm excited to compete in this championship and it's really purely about the golf."
4. 02:17 SOUNDBITE (English): Inbee Park, Two-time U.S. Women's Open Champion (2008, 2013): "Well, I think everybody just trying to avoid political questions because I don't think they get -- I don't think they will get any advantage from saying whether they agree or disagree, and I mean I don't really think that really has much to say with me because I think it is really up to him whether he wants to come or not. I don't think we get the choice of saying whether yes or no. So, we just deal with whatever we have and I think that's pretty much what we can do and this is a great National Championship and I'm sure the USGA worked very hard to pick this golf course and the venue so yeah, I mean it's a true championship golf course then we love to play this golf course."
5. 03:08 SOUNDBITE (English): Danielle Kang, 2017 KPMG Women's PGA Championship Winner: "I don't think I feel that (LPGA golfers have been dodging the questions about Trump). I believe golfers are just answering questions because we are golfers. We get asked a golf question, we are free to answer any of our opinions and stuff. We're here to play a golf tournament. We're here to play a major championship hosted by the USGA. We're all just really happy to be playing the U.S. Open."
6. 03:34 SOUNDBITE (English): Lexi Thompson, World No. 3: "No, I haven't heard really any reservations about it. You know, I'm not into politics at all. I'm really just all golf. That's all I focus on and I'm just going to focus on my play this week. That's all I'm here for. Everything else everybody else can focus us. I'm here to golf. That's it."
