MONTGOMERY COUNTY — Corbin coach Guy Jones was pleased with his Lady Redhound golf team’s efforts this past weekend in the Montgomery County Invitational.
Corbin, who was led by Lindsay Ingle’s third place individual finish 84, turned in a fourth place effort with a 376.
“The greens were extremely difficult to putt,” Jones said. “The undulations were dramatic and they were fast. This was something new for our girls and I feel they responded well. This is the highest we have finished in a tournament. They really bounced back after a disappointing outing at home.”
Jones admitted he was impressed with the way Ingle never got discouraged even after triple bogeying on hole No. 7.
“Lindsay never became flustered today, even after starting with a triple bogey on No. 7,” he said. “She buckled down and played her game. She has really worked hard over the summer and her scores prove it. She is so close to breaking the 80 mark.
“An errant second shot here or there or a simple chip is the only thing holding her back,” he added. “I feel it will happen. It wouldn’t surprise me if it is in the regional tournament where she always plays well.”
Gabby Sadler followed Ingle’s 84 with a 93, while Lauren Jones turned in a 99. Emma McGraw shot a 100 while Julie Crawford finished with a 105.
“Gabby started well but faded a little down the stretch with some three putts and missed tee shots,” Jones said. “The par 3s really hurt her score today. She would easily have been in the mid 80s without the doubles and triples on par 3s.
“Lauren broke 100 for the first time in a tournament and this was a big accomplishment for her,” he added. “She too is an errant tee shot or two from breaking 90. Emma really improved today with a 100 which was a 26 stroke improvement over her first tourney. I knew she would improve, not as jittery today, and she just hit the ball better. She almost made a hole-in-one on her last hole of the day on a par three. Julie played a nice front nine, but couldn’t keep it together the back nine. Her game hasn’t come around yet due to lack of work in the off-season and early practice season. Julie is a fighter and she will improve. We need her down the stretch for us to be successful.”
