Brooke Rivers was complimentary of the course and said that “the course itself was really, really nice, the greens are really easy to read, which is nice, so you aren’t guessing”, she had a great day today on the course, and yesterdays’ practice round helped with her confidence on the course today, “I played well, I was very happy. Front nine, I did make a bogey, and I didn’t make a birdie. Other than that it was a pretty solid round for me. I would have liked a couple more birdies”
