“I have the feeling that everything clicks right.”
Celine Boutier speaks the truth. The LPGA Tour winner fired a bogey-free, 4 under par 67, in the second round of the Volunteers of America Classic, for a total of -7. The 2019 ISPS Handa Vic Open champion is three strokes behind the lead, tied in fourth place, with the action continuing in the second round tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. CT.
“Super grateful that I’m done [my round today]“Said Boutier, who hit 14 greens in regulation on Friday. “I didn’t think the delay would be so long” [of six hours], to be honest. I felt like I took it for granted that we would finish. I am definitely looking forward to being part of this wave of draws and now I just have to concentrate on the weekend. “
Following her appearance this afternoon, five of Boutier’s last seven competitive LPGA Tour rounds were in the 1960s.
“It [Old American Golf Club] played a little harder because of the pin positions, it was a little more difficult and longer because of the rain, ”said Boutier. “It was definitely a different course but I felt like I played better because I didn’t really miss a lot of greens or managed to come up and down when I missed the green, which I didn’t yesterday was.
“Overall, my game goes very well together. I hope I can use that as I’ve done in the past few weeks. “
