Moriya, bogey free, Caroline, two bogey’s, Amy one bogey and Danielle, bogey free, all carded first rounds of -6 under par 66 to lead the Volvik Championship on day one at Travis Pointe Country Club.

Moriya really enjoyed her day, making some putts;

“Pretty much you just hit the shot, go find the ball, hit another shot. If you don’t make the putt, just go hit another putt.”

“I had a lot of fun out there.”

Caroline had a good day with her putter;

“I played well last week, and my ball-striking was really good and I was struggling a little bit with the putts.”

“Just changed a couple things with my coach, earlier this week and it seemed to work,”

“So it was just nice to see a couple go in and played pretty solid overall.”

Danielle also had a good day in the putting department;

“Woke up, was like, I don’t want to make any bogeys today, let’s just try that.”

“I know that’s weird. I rolled the putts really well. I’m hitting the ball really good, even from last week.”

“My game feels really great, so just keep giving myself birdie chances.”

Amy has been making some changes, and it taken a while to blossom;

“That first year was tough, but we’ve turned a corner and I’ve just found a lot of consistency in the last year, and it’s a lot of fun to go out there and play golf a little more stress free.”

Jess said she told her coach she had ball striking problems;

“My coach was like, well you have two weeks to figure it out.“

“I was like, gee thanks.”

“I felt good, I stuck to my process. I’m working on a couple of things before the U.S. Open so just stuck to that and it worked.”

“You knew if the wind wasn’t blowing and the greens were soft could be really aggressive.”

“I just needed some birdies to drop, and that’s exactly what happened.” 

Annie was putting really well;

“I was hitting it well, putting it pretty well.”

“I was struggling reading putts mid-round but I started to roll some putts in, so it was a good day.” 

“It’s always been a great golf course, great conditions, ever since I was in junior golf.”

“It’s in my memories, I personally enjoy playing this golf course.”

Jaye is happy to be on top;

“I think I only missed one green today, so I had a lot of opportunities for birdie and I made seven of them, so that’s good.”

“It feels good to be on top, I mean, there is so much golf left, but I like my position.”
