However, she revealed she has been spending a lot of time improving the minor aspects of her game. She said, “I put a lot of work in on my chipping and putting, hours a day, and just really making sure my ball-striking is more consistent. Keeping things simple but at the same time trying to improve on little things.”

The 26-year-old believes she’s got the physical part of the game under control. Talking about what’s lacking, she said, “I know I’ve put in the work physically on my game. So, just letting it go and letting my true talent show is what I want. You know, if that comes out to a win, great. If not, I’m going to continue working.”
