After a long break the Ferris State women’s golf team is back and ready to take on the spring season.
The Bulldogs have had a long break and haven’t played in a tournament since Oct. 26 when they placed third in the Davenport University Invitational. The Bulldogs have been training though, looking to have a strong spring outing.
Junior Kelsey McKinley has been working hard to improve her game, since a few of the seniors will be away on internship. “Over the winter I have been working hard on my iron game. My goal was to increase my greens in regulation statistic because this was a big weakness of mine,” McKinley said. “I think we will do really well this spring. We have had a few months off but everyone has been working really hard to improve their games.”
The Bulldogs are getting ready for the Perry Park Spring Fling in Kentucky on Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20. This course is definitely different as the Bulldogs will be playing 27 holes in the two-day span.
“Perry Park is a different animal. It’s 27 holes which is very different for us,” senior Libby Berens said. “Hopefully the weather will hold up well enough this year. The course has some difficult parts, but most of the course is manageable.”
“Every team is coming out of off season so some will have had spring breaks to practice and others won’t. Everyone should be very competitive at this tourney. Grand Valley and Indy should be huge competition but the majority of our conference should be as well,” Berens said.
Although the Bulldogs will be missing a few of their teammates due to internships, this team is going to try making some noise in the upcoming tournaments. The Bulldogs will be looking to their underclassmen to step up and show what they worked on over the winter break.
