Crystal told her coach, George Pinnell, that she was super unhappy with her performance over the weekend. “I made too many mistake’s in my first round with a double bogey and 4 bogies that negated my 5 birdies. In the second round, I made 4 birdies and 4 bogies for my round of even par. Again, too many mistake’s. I need to make better decision’s that will lead to fewer mistake’s that will improve my scoring. I did not like my finish on the first day with bogies on 17 and 18. I will be better.”
Crystal is currently ranked 182 in the U.S. by Junior Golf Scoreboard.
