Hey Illini Fans!
As many of you probably know we just recently competed in the Big Ten Championship at French Lick Resort. Competing for Illinois at our conference tournament is truly an experience of a lifetime and one that I especially cherished this being my senior year. The resort is incredibly nice, however we all learned it's best to stick with a teammate as it's pretty easy to get lost. We started off the weekend with a practice round at The Donald Ross Course which is an amazing test of golf. The course is very hilly with thick rough and challenging greens. That night we enjoyed a banquet hosted by the French Lick Resort and Big Ten for all the teams including keynote speaker Holly Sonders.
Hello Illini fans!
We recently got back from playing at Marsh Landing in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. It was a really fun course that presented itself with tons of opportunities for birdies and allowed the field to be really aggressive on and around the greens. We made several goals going into the tournament that allowed us to focus on making birdies, committing to shots, and attacking the course. Ember and Sam did a great job of this throughout the tournament. Ember had the most birdies on the team, scoring eight! Crystal and Jackie each posted a solid round as well. The weather during the tournament was great and we found that our shirt tans are coming back nicely. It was sunny and hot every day and we soon became adapted to the humidity and smell of marsh and salt water. The course was in great condition and I hope that we have the opportunity to play on it again next year.
Hey there Illini fans,
Hope you are all enjoying the start of Spring. I know our team did over this past week in Georgia! We may not have played to our best ability at the Insperity Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate, but we still had a fun trip and worked hard on golf at the same time. A highlight from the tournament was Ember Schuldt placing ninth with 75- 73-74. The course, Forest Hills Golf Club, played challenging for all with extremely fast greens and a lot of undulation, so Ember's scores were very respectable. She is definitely feeling great about her game right now, and the rest of us are going to work hard in the upcoming two weeks so we feel great about our game too as the season is coming to a close.
