Jenny Coleman fired a 72-hole career-best total on the LPGA Tour of 280 this week at the LPGA Drive On Championship presented by Volvik at Golden Ocala. It bested her previous mark of 283, which she shot in the 2017 Volvik Championship at Travis Pointe Country Club. The solo third result in Marion County was also good for a career-best finish.
Currently ranked No. 440 in the Rolex World Rankings, Coleman’s hard work and end result certainly helped her to feel more confident early in the season.
“It's so nice to have worked so hard and finally my game is kicking into gear. Last year was just, man, just kind of treading along. Now I'm finally getting after it,” said Coleman, who hit 15 greens in the final round. “It helps boost my confidence and know I have the game to be out here, that I deserve to be out here. What I'm doing is working well, so just keep on that and turn it up a notch.”
The end result would be reason enough to celebrate, but the third-year LPGA Tour member says she will continue to work hard with a long season ahead of her and particularly on her putting.
“Stick to my gameplan and play my game, just keep the approaches strong and driver, play it to the side that gives you the best angle into the greens,” said Coleman, who will tee it up at the Kia Classic in a couple weeks. “And putting, just keep grinding. It's something I could improve on the most. Get a good read, put the best stroke you can on it and that's all you do. If they fall, great. If they don't, they don't.”
