“I love this course,” she said. “I played really well today. It was nice and sunny out there, but a little windy.”

Getty added her short game was working well, leading to the five birdies.

As for the lone bogey, she said she just “missed it on the wrong side.”

This is the teenager’s first competitive play at Maple City, but she said she has played the course before, as a friend is a member.
