Round 3: Maiken described her last round as a fight. With the score of 73 (+1) she had one double bogey, two bogeys, and three birdies. Her short irons were very good today saving her while the long clubs brought the fescue into play. Maiken is looking at this tournament as a whole and is very happy with her second tournament in a row under par. 69, 71, 73 (-3) is her best event so far. Her game is getting stronger and her experience is growing, improving her overall understanding of the game but also her own strengths and weaknesses.
A bonus to this event was an event Maiken qualified for after the second round in the Flumserberg Ladies Open, a match play event with the top Pros after the second round plus 8 invited pros. This match play event will be hosted at the same course tomorrow, Sunday 6. September. It will be a fun day and Maiken is going to take it as practice even though there is money to be made. First 6 hole match is at 08:00, then the next at 10:00 and so on. Updates after tomorrow will be posted here.
Round 2: Maiken’s tee time was at 12:50 this Friday afternoon. Five hours later in 28 degree heat she signed for a score of 71 (-1). Two birdies and one bogey. The game was very steady and not enough puts wanted to go in the hole today. With a lot of waiting especially on the last few holes, Maiken is pleased with the score and another round under par. Tomorrow her tee time is at 9:20, and with only 5 shots behind the lead in 9th place anything can happen. She said she was going to keep playing her own game and fight for every opportunity. You can follow her score on the link below.
Round 1: Maiken and Knud are well prepared for the next two rounds after a great round of 69 (-3). After a four quick birdies on the front she was -4 going into the back nine. Unfortunately Maiken missed a few fairways on the back costing her a few shots, but managed to get herself in on a very good score through the 18 first holes of the tournament. Maiken is tied for 5th place, four shots behind Stina Resen, another Norwegian player.
Maiken’s plan for tomorrow is to keep giving herself som good opportunities for birdies and hit a few more fairways on the back nine 🙂
