 "We never really feel nervous or something before a major, but we've just been nervous for like a couple months for this tournament," Ryu said. "And we really actually were worried about it because we were really worried about how to deal with this pressure, but it turns out because this is home field, we felt more comfortable, and because so many fans came out to support us, I think we had a lot of benefits."

 "I think that my sense of responsibility is what really gets me going at this event, the sense of responsibility that I feel for my fellow teammates and also given the fact that I represent Korea from a pool of very, very talented Korean players," Ryu said. "So I have a sense of responsibility that I have to give it my all."

 Ryu's teammates faired well in the final day, too, with Kim defeating Bronte Law (England) 2 up, and Chun winning 1 up over Anna Nordqvist (Sweden). The final member of their team, Park, lost to Ariya Jutanugarn (Thailand). Jutanugarn, current U.S. Women's Open champion, 2018, did her best Patrick Reed impression, shushing the big crowds supporting Park. But they weren't shushed for long. The one loss in the singles matches didn't matter. Their lead was big enough.

 As for the Americans, any hopes of repeating as champs faded when Michelle Wie fell to Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn, 2 and 1, and Cristie Kerr lost to England's Georgia Hall, 2 and 1. Jessica Korda was the lone American to win her singles match, knocking off Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom, 4 and 3.
