Today was the first round of the CN Women’s Tour event at Squamish Valley Golf Club. The weather was great as the rain had decided to stay away and the sun was shining! A nice cool wind blew off the mountain sides which had us all keeping our sweaters on for the day.
My Round was okay! This is one of the strongest fields that I have ever played in and this early in the season. Although I struck the ball poorly, I ended up digging in a shooting a 77 (+5) which is 8 stroke back of the leader who is sitting at -3 for the day. One of my highlights was hitting a hybrid from 200 yards from the left trees, over the trees and coming up just short of the green giving myself a chance to save par. The other highlight was putting it in from off the green on #10 to save par after a few poorly executed shots.
After the round, I received a few pointers from Derek Ingram the National Women’s Team head coach. After trying it out on the range…I came to realize…oh my…what the heck was I doing out there today and how did I actually get any portion of the club face on the ball! Thankfully, my short game came through.
Tomorrow I tee off at 8:00 AM – bright and early with the worms! Looking forward to a steady round. They have live scoring for the event..so you can keep up as I play through the morning hole by hole! Until tomorrow!
