Crystal Wang a freshman at Diamond Bar High School shot 76-80 (156) to finish in a tie for eighth place in the Toyota Tour Cup at Carlton Oaks Golf Club. Crystal was disappointed in her performance and felt she should have scored better. In the first round, Crystal played hole’s 1-12 at 1 over par. She played the last 6 hole’s in 3 over par with a birdie and 4 bogies. In her second round a double bogie on 9 and 3 bogies and a birdie on the front nine gave her a +4. The back nine started well as she played -1 from 10 through 13. Trouble on 14 through 18 caused Crystal to lose 5 shot’s on her finishing hole’s. It is safe to say that “finishing” a round is super important and that player’s have to grind to overcome fatigue in the closing holes. The leg’s can become tired, causing the player to use only the upper body and that will result in errant shots caused by not using the lower body.
Congratulations to Crystal for another top 10 showing on the Toyota Tour!
