“We played very well and had some good momentum-saving putts,” Alabama Coach Mic Potter said. “We got up-and-down well and made some birdies on the back side. We had two girls shoot under par on a very difficult golf course. It was a solid day that had everyone involved and playing one shot at a time like we like it.”
