Cold and windy weather challenges Swede golfers
Rain, wind and cool weather combined to make the Gothenburg Invite less than enjoyable to say the least.
Head coach Tara Foster said the conditions were not ideal for the home invite at Wild Horse Golf Club last Thursday.
Gothenburg finished in third place overall shooting a 422. The Swedes were beaten by Minden’s score of 383 and McCook at 365.
Foster felt the conditions hampered the girls from a good showing and didn’t allow them to shoot scores they expected to at home, she said.
Leading the way for Gothenburg was Mallory McCoy who shot 100, which was good enough for 12th place. Taylour Marshall also medaled shooting 101.
The low round of the invite belonged to Megan Vetrovsky from McCook who finished with a 79.
“I was pleased how the girls were able to hand in a decent score, after a few bad holes and the conditions,” Foster said.
Gothenburg will continue to focus on short game and quality approaches to each shot, Foster said.
They will play in North Platte on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
