Luck was on her side! And with some of the talent she already possesses in scads, the Norwegian lady Suzann Pettersen proceeded to be at the forefront of the ensuing round. The event was the LPGA and it took place in Texas.
Her score was simply marvelous with a 5-under-par 66. Other players that were in the competition included: Michelle Wie, Dori Carter, Cristie Kerr, Cyndey Clanton, Christina Kim and last bit not least Caroline Masson.
Meanwhile, P.K. Kongkraphen and Xi Yu Lin clocked in at the 68th place. It was a tough match alright with the clash of the titans being the main feature. Pettersen had suffered a lumbar injury from which she recovered within a month’s time span.
"Last week was nice to be back," she said. "It's always tough when you come back from something like that when you're so out of play. You're not even close to be playing. And then next thing you know the pain is gone and you can start hitting balls, and to bring back the mentality straight away."
And now she is back at the game with a vengeance. According to Pettersen, she felt positive about the whole experience but she also said that she had to start out safe and then proceed to bag all the holes.
"I feel good," she said. "I gotta kind of pace myself a little bit. I can't do too much early in the week, so I have a lot of spare time to fool around with. Just playing good. Hitting the ball great. Today I was actually feeling a little bit tense to start, which is a good sign."
Suzann Pettersen is doing her thing with flow and a fantastic drive that wills everything to go in her favor. As for the ensuing of the great game, she admitted this much that she had butterflies in her stomach.
But later on things became stable and she struck shot after shot on the golf links. In each one of the pentad of events, this Norwegian wonder has ended up in the top 30.
She confesses that it sure is good to be back in form. Suzann Pettersen is on top of her game and looking to take up the challenge of exactness and balance that is every golfer’s dream.
For the next three days or so, Pettersen will be facing an onslaught of tough assignments that are not only physically taxing but psychologically unnerving. How she takes them will determine what she is made of.
