===========================================

When describing Junior Daisy Williams golf game, there is no shortage of appropriate adjectives to pick from. She could be called talented after medaling in over a dozen matches this season. She could be called tireless as she hits practice balls before, during and after practice. She could be called dominant as evidenced by her back to back to back Three Rivers Conference individual championships on three different courses. Clutch after winning her latest TRC individual title in a thrilling play off. Steady as she made clutch par after clutch par on the closing holes at regionals to secure a spot in the state championship. Following a challenging start in the first round of the state championship and how she bounced back, you can add resilient to the adjectives that properly describe her game.

Teeing off in the second group off the first tee on the first day with a crowd of nearly 200 people watching, Daisy hit her opening tee shot down the fairway. Her second shot unfortunately landed in a deep pot bunker left of the green. Following her escape from the bunker she was left with a difficult lie that meant she could only advance her chip shot a few feet. After finishing the first hole, she caught a bad break on the second hole when a putt curved late and missed the hole. Most golfers, after that rough of a start with two bad breaks, would have folded mentally and given up. Daisy is not most golfers as she started to grind out each and every hole on the challenging Prairie View Golf Course in Carmel Indiana. Daisy’s efforts paid off when she birdied the 9th and 14th hole and played the last 7 holes in her first round at one over par. Daisy ended day one in a tie for 71st place after finishing with an 88. Unhappy with her current position, she practiced following the round in preparation to improve her standing in round two.

Round two opened much better as she played her first three holes (on the back nine) four strokes better than the day before. Despite not making any long putts, she continued to play solid and made the turn in 39 before playing the same holes that gave her trouble the day before. Daisy showed resilience by not allowing those memories to affect her and played those holes in three less strokes than the day before. Her mental toughness came through as any bad breaks (drive ending in a divot on one hole, her tee shot rolling into deep rough after a bad bounce on another) were ignored and she played smart shots into the greens. She finished her second nine with three straight pars to close with a stellar 79. This nine shot improvement moved her from 71st to 41st in the 108 player field.

Although the 41st place finish was not what Daisy had hoped for going into the tournament, the juniors stellar season ends on a high note as her 79 moved her past 30 golfers on the last day of the tournament. Also the experience gained will help her next year when she hopes to not only to qualify for state, but contend for the title.

Thank you all for the support for Daisy during the tournament. A thank you to the family, friends, and teammates that came out to support her
