Driver plagues Song at Am
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
ST. LOUIS — Jennifer Song may have been a little worried after her first-round, 4-over 75, but this year's U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links champ should be in the clear with a 36-hole total of 4-over 146.
Still, an uncooperative driver has plagued Song her past few events, and through two rounds of the Women's Am, a drop-kick, pop-up tee ball continues to frustrate her.
"I'm not going to worry about it too much, though," said Song. "I just have to get the ball in the hole. That's all that matters."
Helping her get the ball in the hole is her dad, Museok, who was on the bag for her Publinx title and has been her looper for the entire summer.
"Without me saying anything, he knows how I feel about a certain shot," said Song. "He's a good caddie, but everyone says he's a really good caddie."
Either way, it's better than hauling your own bag for 36 holes.
