For Ann Carroll and Mike Martz, it was just one round of four. While their squads, Carroll’s Team Canada 1 and Martz’s Team Canada 2, trail other countries after Round 1 of the World Junior Girls at The Marshes in Ottawa, they’re both optimistic that things will change with three rounds to go.
“It was a good day because I saw a lot of fight back in my team,” said Martz. “Euna had a tough start and then she made some birdies to get it back and I’m pretty happy for her.”
Martz was busy trying to be in three places at one time, as his team played in consecutive groups starting off the first tee. “You try to be everywhere, but that’s not always possible,” said Martz.
Martz also had good things to say about the comeback of Alisha Lau. “Alisha had a tough start, but she kept fighting and she got it back to under-par,” said Martz. “She had a tough finish, but I’ll try to dwell on what’s good and the fact she fought back so hard today.”
And Martz also had kind words for the third member of the team, Richmond’s Kathrine Chan. “Every day you play, you learn, and Kathrine learned something about her game today and that will help her in her next rounds.”
