LaCrosse Gets Assist From Father's Old Yardage Book

July 7, 2011 - U.S. Women's Open - Cindy LaCrosse benefited today from some notations in one of her father's old yardage books. And earlier this week, Dad Doug LaCrosse of Tampa, who competed in the 2008 U.S. Senior Open Championship at The Broadmoor, made sure his daughter knew which way her putts would break on the course's tricky greens.

"It was helpful," said LaCrosse, competing in her first full LPGA season. "Some of the yardages were the same."

LaCrosse was at even par on the 18th tee box when play was suspended today for lightning. The Floridian hit every fairway in today's opening round and missed three greens in regulation.

"I hit everything on the front nine and kind of struggled a little bit in the middle, but today, I was consistent from tee to green," said LaCrosse, who was the 2010 LPGA Futures Tour Player of the Year and a three-time winner.

LaCrosse will return for the resumption of the first round Friday at 7:45 a.m., to complete her final hole.

"I'm kind of glad I have to come back out here for the one hole," she added. "Even if I don't get to play any more golf on Friday, I'll at least come back here and get in some practice."
