Mixed Results On The Course For Former Cowgirls

It was a tough week on the course at the Australian Open for the Cowgirls, but as Karin Sjodin found out, a bad week in Australia beats a good week just about anywhere else.

The week in Australia didn't go quite as planned for the former Cowgirls.  All signs were pointing to a successful tournament for the ladies, but golf happened and only one of our girls made the cut.

Leading the way this week was Pernilla Lindberg.  Riding some excellent ball striking that led her to hit 52/60 fairways for the week, she finished in 20th alone.  With scores of 76-74-71-73, she did an excellent job of climbing the leaderboard on the weekend after a slow start.  Pernilla's continued strong play should help keep the momentum building in the coming weeks.

The other two Cowgirls in the tournament, Caroline Masson and Karin Sjodin, didn't fare as well, unfortunately.  Caroline fired 78-77 to miss the cut, while Karin came back strong from her opening round 82 with a 74 in the second but ultimately came up just short to miss the weekend.  It wasn't all bad, however...a quick visit to Karin's Twitter page will show you how positive she is and the excellent attitude she had following the missed cut.

I know I'd rather be in Australia than freezing my tail off in Oklahoma right now.

Next up is the Honda LPGA Thailand in Chonburi, Thailand.
