Snyder sticks to the plan, takes commanding lead at 93rd Iowa Women’s Amateur
Britta Snyder (pictured above), of Gilbert, knew she left more than a few shots out there yesterday during the 93rd Iowa Woman’s Amateur at Hyperion Field Club.
Today, she didn’t.
Snyder fired a sizzling 70 (-2) to take the lead by seven shots over opening round leader Maddie Bertsch. Snyder made a total of four birdies, all on the front nine (her second nine holes of the day).
“I made some putts today,” Snyder said. “Going into today I wanted to be under par, it’s out there on this course. It’s a challenge (out here), but you know there are birdie opportunities out there. I wanted to finish strong. I had a double bogey yesterday (on #4) and almost birdied that hole today. It was just a matter of figuring out a few things.”
The game plan for Snyder won’t change she said, no matter how big of a cushion she may have entering the final round.
“That doesn’t change (my mindset),” Snyder said. “(Today) I wanted to get the lead and increase it. I want to stick to my game plan, step on the gas and hopefully get the win.”
Sitting just a shot back of Bertsch in the race for the top three is a trio of players including Allison Olberding, Paige Van Dyk and Leanne Smith.
In the Open Division Kari Manning leads followed closely by several golfers looking to make a move in tomorrow’s final round.
