Coach Stephen Paquin Comments:  A tie score after 4 scores 229 went to the 5th score and the victory to North Montgomery 64 to GHS 65.  The match was extremely close with Molly Ramey being the match medalist with a good score of 45.  Molly is improving each match with good ball striking driving and hitting good irons to the green; she continues to struggle with chipping and putting as do all the Cubs.  The most important skill in the game for lowering scores is getting on the green and putting well during the round.  Only Molly for the Cubs have played Rocky Ridge before and it’s difficult for inexperienced players to figure out where to drive, hit irons the correct distance, and chip and putt greens they have never seen or putted on; different speed and length and slope.  Our players are getting better and continued practice and matches will show that improvement.  The newest Cub,
Ryleigh Tuttle had a very good first outing shooting a 64 and scoring the 4th best score in the match for the Cubs.  She will only get better and will really help the Cubs.  Kadence, Jenn, Allison, and Rain had some very good shots off the tee and with their irons.  Again the short game prevented the Cubs in  getting the win.  We will continue to work on this important skill.
Next Match:  Sat Aug. 24 in the Edgewood Invitational at Cascades GC in Bloomington at 12::00 noon
