Although her scores weren&rsquo;t what she wanted in Palos Verdes, I&rsquo;m feeling good about her game this week. She gained a lot of experience on a very demanding golf course. I feel really good about where this team is headed and we want to take advantage of playing on our home golf course. This is our one and only chance to play in <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Tucson</st1:place></st1:City> in front of the home crowd and I&rsquo;m hoping that people will have a chance to come watch.
