QUOTING HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL
“I think we definitely missed some opportunities today, but the team worked hard and battled through some poor play early. Jessica, Shawn, and Kristin played strong today and are doing a good job leading our team. We are optimistic and looking forward to the final round tomorrow.”
“I played a pretty clean round yesterday, but an even cleaner one today. I hit 15 greens today and almost all fairways so I’m very happy with my consistency, which, especially on this course, is good for momentum-building. I wasn’t able to get my approaches as close to give myself more birdie opportunities, but I still felt really good with my putter. The goal tomorrow is to play more aggressively when I can and post a good score.”
The Big Ten Championships conclude tomorrow with round three teeing off at 7:00 a.m. (CT).
