Pettersen Wins Girls Classic

ROCKFORD-Madasyn Pettersen won the Greater Rockford Women's Golf Classic two weeks ago, so it's no surprise that she ran away from the field in the Greater Rockford Girls Classic Monday.

Pettersen shot a 72 at Ingersoll to claim the overall championship by a whopping 18 strokes.

"It feels really, really good. It's a privilege to be able to play all of these tournaments around here, and to be able to compete like I do," says Pettersen. "Oh my gosh. It was a good day today. It really was. After the women's city everything kind of went downhill. I had like a back tweak, but everything's good."

Pettersen moves from one tournament right into another. Tuesday in Savoy she'll tee it up in the Girls Junior State Amateur.

"The last time I played that I was 12, because I was injured last year," says Pettersen. "I don't know if you know this, but when I was 12 I shot five under, but I got disqualified, so I didn't get to complete it. So this year I'm hoping to complete it."

"It's almost better to go play tournaments then just sit here and practice because you gain experience. Your game gets sharper because it is competitive golf,  and it's not just practice. So yea, going into tomorrow these two tournaments have helped me a lot, and this tournament (the Junior State Amateur) is a big deal, yea. There's going to be a lot of good players there who are going to go way under par, so I'm going to have to shoot pretty far under par, so let's go!"
