Lizette Salas leads the first round of the Indy Women in Tech Championship after an hour-long delay at the Brickyard Crossing Golf Club.
Lizette, from USA, carded -10 under par 62 to lead the Indy Women in Tech Championship by two shots, after waiting an hour to make a birdie putt on 17;
“I didn’t even think about it the entire time during the delay.”
“I was hanging out with Danielle, and she was giving me her silly Dad jokes, so it definitely kept my mind off of it.”
“I was really excited to be back. And to finish off with birdie on 18 from off the green, which is icing on the cake, so just got to keep it going the next three days.”
“These are bent greens, and that’s what I grew up on back in California. So I have been just striking the ball really well this entire year, and just glad some more putts dropped today.”
Sharing second place at -8 under par are Angel Yin, USA, and Nasa Hataoka of Japan.
Angel was putting well, to post her career best, a 64, and sinking 22 putts for the round;;
“I have never done that before. So I had nine putts I think on the front nine, which is incredible.”
“Never had that many little putts. But it just felt good. Everything was working.”
“Even on the back nine, when I shot even, I played well. Just didn’t go in. The wind picked up. But overall it was very solid.”
Four ladies are then tied in fourth place at -7 under, Caroline Hedwall, Sweden, Jin Young Ko, South Korea, with Danielle Kang and Jane Park from the USA.
