“These are the ones that motivate me to go practice every day. If you get a little taste of it, it’s just such an incredible feeling.”
A two-time major champion at the 2009 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and 2017 Amundi Evian Championship, Anna Nordqvist is driven by major championships. With the 50th ANA Inspiration at hand, she is showcasing her brand of golf that typically comes out during major championship weeks.
In 12 career starts at Mission Hills Country Club (including this week), Nordqvist has never missed a cut and earned six top-20 finishes. On top of that, she has played the weekend in 80% of the 56 major starts in her career, with 15 top-10s.
“I keep working hard and try to put myself in the same position again [and again],” said Nordqvist, who fired a 2-under 70 on Friday to reach -6 overall at the ANA Inspiration halfway point. “I feel pretty solid with my game and like it’s trending in the right direction. That’s really all I can do. I’m very happy with the game.”
