Katherine “The Kat” Muzi, lead the opening round of the Toyota Tour Cup Series @ Olivas Links, Ventura, CA., with a -2 under par 70 before shooting a 4 over par 76 to finish in a tie for 4th place. Although, Katherine was disappointed with her 76 and 4th place finish, but her coach, George Pinnell, has been very pleased with her development from the beginning of the summer.
Katherine’s scorecard was relative clean with a 37 on the front and a 3 under par 33 on the back. The 13 year old from Walnut, CA, had only 2 bogey’s, and those were on the front side. In her second and final round she had a lone bogey on the 8th hole that left her with a one over par 37. 4 bogy’s and a birdie on the back side left her with the 76 and a total score of 70-76 (146). Pinnell went on to say, “Katherine is showing more maturity and beginning to understand the meaning of “owning one’s swing.” Her growth should continue according to Pinnell.
