The Waynesville Lady Tigers participated in the Ozark Conference Golf Tournament today at the Schifferdecker Golf Course in Joplin. The rain and hot weather stayed away and the course was very fair tee to green. It added up to a very pleasant day to see who the best of the best were in the Ozark Conference.
The tournament was won by Camdenton with a team score of 360 and the 2nd place trophy went to Glendale with a 372. Individual medalist was, once again Amber Wilson of Camdenton with a 1 over par 72. The lady Tiger's Senior, Victoria Hooker, was named to the 1st Team All Conference squad finishing 4th place by tying her career low with an 82.
Hooker was focused early on, but ran into trouble on 4 consecutive holes in the middle of her round. She pulled herself out of the trouble by refocusing and finishing strong. She followed our game plan for her today and it resulted in her best score in the Ozark Conference Tournament. Victoria possess tremendous talent from tee to green, but just like most of us, her short-game has hurt her. Today, she really tried to think about the right pitch shot to hit and was very conscious of the type of club she chose around the greens. Most of the greens at Schifferdecker are very small compared to some of the courses we play and getting the ball to land and stop where she wants it can be tricky. I am very pleased with the progress she made today as we finish the week with 2 night matches at Eldon and Osage in preparation for the Class 2, District 5 tournament on Monday, September 25. Her willingness to be coachable and making good course-management decisions will be crucial at the district tournament.
The Lady Tigers will next play tomorrow night at Eldon in a triangular match with Eldon and Osage.
