Kummer scores 109 at state golf

Erik Pague

Senior golfer Kylie Kummer made her second trip to the 2A state golf championships at The Classic in Spanaway May 28 but couldn't qualify for day two after shooting for 109 strokes on day one - five strokes from the cutoff mark of 104 strokes.
Kummer placed 23rd in the 2013 tournament by playing consistent golf and she did that for the most part, according to head coach Heather McDonald. Unfortunately, Kummer ran into some trouble on hole 13. A shot she took from an uphill lie got away from her and landed in some trees and made for a rough fight back to the fairway.
"And then she got a tough lie and she couldn't get it out," McDonald said.
After shooting a 51 on the front, McDonald and Kummer both expected a turnaround on the back nine, but the tough situation on hole 13 was a bit too much of a setback.
"She shot a 51 on the front and that's what she did at districts, so I just thought as long as she stays composed, plays OK golf, she could finish with a 49 and that would give her 100," McDonald said.
McDonald has coached Kummer for four years now to play smart golf and forget about the bad holes and she saw that happening once again. She said Kummer was disappointed she couldn't reach the same success level as she did last year but was happy to make it back to the big stage once again.
"I'm most proud of her for learning from her mistakes, persevering and not letting those bad holes determine your whole round of golf," McDonald said.
The Huskies will lose Kummer and fellow graduating seniors Ivone Garza and Kristin Wolfs and McDonald said the team will look forward to, hopefully, participating in summer golf camps and developing
younger players.
