Since she captured her first Symetra Tour title at the Symetra Classic in May, Casey Danielson has been searching for consistency. The Stanford University alumna missed three of four cuts between her victory in Davidson, N.C., and the Donald Ross Classic.
Danielson is not only playing the weekend at French Lick Resort, but she is in contention for another win on the “Road to the LPGA” following a second-round 68.
“After a win, you learn a lot,” said Danielson, who recorded five birdies in round two. “I had a couple of weeks where I just couldn’t get in it and last week was tough, an off week, kind of hit a low point. Then I told myself, ‘Have fun, stay in it, get a better mindset.’ I was able to do that and have to keep reminding myself to take a lot of deep breaths and enjoy it. My game feels really good. It’s definitely in the cards.”
In a tie for second at 7-under overall, just one shot back of the lead, Danielson will head off No. 1 tee at 9:20 a.m. ET in the final grouping.
“You really have to think through your shots and place it, especially on the greens,” Danielson said. “I think I do a pretty good job of that, as well as distance control, so I’m using my course management and iron play to my strength. Making a lot of putts, which is fun.”
