Caroline Masson said at the HSBC Women’s World Championship that she was waiting for every part of her game to come together. After two consecutive bogey-free 66s at the Honda LPGA Thailand, Masson feels her play is heading in the right direction.
“Those things that are hard to explain in golf sometimes that are just going a little bit better, I mean, I think mainly for me making more putts. Clearly I've putted really well the last couple days, so that's the major difference, too, I think the last few weeks,” said Masson. “I think it makes you appreciate when things are kind of going your way, because I've been complaining and felt sorry for myself a little bit that things were not going my way. I want to appreciate that and not take it for granted, and just hope to roll with it for the next couple days, too.”
Masson said it’s easy to feel sorry for yourself in golf at times, but it took a mental stop to fixate her mind on the positives. “I decided I don't want to feel like that and I don't want to do that, and I think that is why I've had a little bit of a different attitude this week,” said Masson. “I want to keep that up, go out there and have fun, and when things are not going my way, just deal with it.”
Masson sits in solo third at -12, recording her lowest 36-hole score of her career on the LPGA Tour. Her previous best was a 133, last recorded at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open, now the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open. She’s hoping to carry the momentum from her first two rounds into another top finish on the LPGA Tour.
“I think for me, important is that I keep a good rhythm in my swing. I tend to get a little bit fast, and I think it's just little things like that with the driver, putting the ball in good position, and then having a good attitude and just really coming out here to have fun and have a good time and not take it too seriously.”
