“Today I was trying not to get frustrated when the putts were not going in. But at the same time, I had a lot of good shots into the green. So I wanted to make sure I did not put any added pressure on myself because I knew it was a tough day with the weather and wet course.” – Sophomore Priscilla Schmid following her second round 74 (+2).
