Katie Finishes 2nd in Australia!
Katie had a great and exciting showing in the Bonville Ladies Classic, near Coffs Harbour, Australia.
After starting the tournament in the tropical area of Australia with +4 after 11 holes in the first round, Katie showed great fight with finishing at -8 and runner-up to Celine Boutier on Sunday evening.
The Georgia native had 16 birdies and an eagle in her third tournament of the year. After starting her season a little rougher than she likes she made some adjustments to her tactics; deciding to play a little more aggressive like she did when she was an amateur and what she believes brings out the best of her game and makes her a great player. Katie played in the Australia Women's Open in Adeleide the week before the Bonville Ladies Classic but had a tough time scoring and missed the cut by a couple shots.
Her showing in Bonville is her second runner-up finish on the Ladies European Tour, and might just give her the much needed confidence before a strong row of LPGA tournaments on the west coast of the United States starting in couple weeks in Phoenix, AZ. Be sure to follow her progress after this exciting finish in Australia.
