KIRSTY MAKES CUT AT WOMEN’S COLORADO OPEN:
This tournament, 54 holes of individual stroke was played at the picturesque Green Valley Ranch Golf Club, 30 August-1 September 2017. The first two days saw Kirsty shoot rounds of 72 and 73 consecutively, but unfortunately the third day Kirsty had a setback on the 8th hole having a triple bogey, finishing T39. As devastating as this was, Kirsty gained valuable knowledge from this event with a clear vision of what areas she needs to focus on.
This tournament has given Kirsty the confidence to play alongside other professional women golfer’s knowing she is more than capable of holding her own.
COLORADO BUFFS FINISH 3RD:
After having some much deserved time back home in Australia Kirsty had to return back to Colorado early August to settle back into college for the second half of the year. The first college tournament was played at UNM’S (University of New Mexico) golf course Alberquerque. With many past national champion teams playing this made for a very tough tournament.
The Colorado Buffs finished 3rd and was overjoyed with their placing. Kirsty, with her rounds of 73, 71, 71 finished T10 for a total of one under. Consistent golf allowed Kirsty to hit almost every green in regulation only to be let down with her putting. We have all experienced days where it doesn’t matter what you do, the putts will not drop. This will be an area where Kirsty will put into place a putting drill. For the tournament Kirsty made 45 pars from 54 holes which lead the field for the most amount of pars. GREAT RESULT!!! Kirsty’s next tournament will be played in Idaho from 25-27 September 2017.
We hear Kirsty is sporting a very fashionable knee brace due to multiple different injuries which are affecting the knee. We, the Goodstart Team are all sending you well wishes for a very speedy recovery and trust the Idaho Tournament you’ll show that knee of yours whose the boss. Go out, play your game the way you know how to, and the rest will take care of itself. GOOD LUCK KIRSTY!!!
