Hi Wildcat fans,
Just wanted to give you all an update on how we are doing in our home event this weekend. We played our first round yesterday and shot 312 and we’re one back of UCF. One of the highlights of the day was when Ashleigh holed out her third shot on the par 5, 16th for eagle from 105 yards!
All in all it was a really tough day due to cold weather and sustained winds of 30mph. It’s usually pretty windy out at big blue, but yesterday was worse than normal. The scores were high overall and we were only one back of UCF coming into today.
Today was even colder than yesterday due to a cold front that we have coming through. We talked a lot about attitude before we teed off because who ever can handle this weather the best will have an advantage so it is very important. This is a very tough golf course so you really have to grind all day and finish strong.
We shot 309 today so we improved some. Ashleigh shot 73 which puts her in 2nd and Ashlee shot 75 and that puts her at 4th right now. Those were both great scores today and with a good round tomorrow they will both have a chance to win this tournament individually.
Last night was parent night so all the girls went with their families since most parents came to watch. Usually we have the parents come with us but since it’s the home event we decided this was better and it would give the girls more time with their parents. This evening we went out to eat and we had some good Italian for dinner.
Tomorrow we have a shotgun start at 9am and we are pumped! We are five back and are in contention to win this tournament. We need to focus on ourselves tomorrow and go to work. This is the fun part about college tournament – being in the hunt and having a chance to win!
Please cross your fingers for us tomorrow or hold your thumbs if you are in Sweden
