Stacy, with the low round of the day, was happy with the greens in the morning, the ball rolled better;
“The golf course was softer this morning; the greens rolled a lot better; and then my swing felt a lot better.”
“Kind of found something after the round yesterday; obviously felt a lot better out there.”
“Felt like really any hole I could make birdie on.”
“The goal to start the week, was to take a big check home, ( for the donation to Houston) that’s still the goal. Now I’m in a good spot to do that.”
Brooke would like to continue with her momentum;
“It was just a little bit up and down today. I made a lot of birdies and an eagle, which is awesome.”
“Although I made a couple bogeys that I would like to take off the card for the next few days.”
“Overall I feel like I have a solid game plan, and any time I’m in double digits after two days I’m really happy.”
“Just try and continue that trend over the next two days.”
In Gee likes everything, the course and the people;
“I really like this course, also the spectators are so kind here.”
