Harrity eyes 16th NH Women's Golf Association championship
Harrity is poised to win the state championship for the 16th time at today’s final round.
“It’s really all about the first shot,” said Harrity. “If you drive it straight here, you score.”
Mindy Inglis-Reid from Pembroke Pines and Joan Cyr of Rochester Country Club duplicated their first round 6-over 78s to finish tied for third at 12-over 156.
“I eagled that hole (Monday). (Tuesday) I double bogeyed, so it was a pretty bad start,” said Harrity.
But she responded with a birdie on two. She bogeyed five, six and eight and made the turn at 5-over. She settled down after that with birdies 10 and 14 to turn things around.
“I just tried to hang in there and shot 2-under on the back nine,” said Harrity. “I was very solid on the back, very consistent.”
“I hope I play better (today) because I didn’t like the way I played (Tuesday),” said Ricci. “When things go wrong it gets hard to stay in the game mentally.”
Cyr and Inglis-Reid remain tied for third after carding 78s. “Seventy-eight was easier the day before. Today I was happy to earn it,” said Inglis-Reid. “It doesn’t take much to get you in a bad spot, then you are struggling for par.”Thibodeau had the toughest day, falling from a share of the lead Monday to 14 strokes behind. The young player was visibly upset with her performance, but her fellow golfers say it’s all part of the game.
