COACH HOLT QUOTES
Thoughts on today’s round…
“We just didn’t put it all together today. The conditions were the toughest of the weekend with the increased wind. We just didn’t manage it as well as we needed to. It was disappointing because there was an opportunity to move up.”
“We will regroup over the next few weeks and get ready for the Wake Forest event. We had a great week of practice and look for the weather in South Bend to turn so we can get outside.”
Notre Dame will play in the Bryan National Collegiate on April 6-8 at the Bryan Park Champions Course in Greensboro, North Carolina. — ND —
