SALT LAKE CITY – Kendra Dalton, Epson Tour pro and former BYU women’s golf star, is excited and optimistic about the challenge ahead regarding the Copper Rock Championship.
A year ago at the inaugural tournament in Hurricane, Utah, Dalton tied for 45 but showed a great deal of composure and perseverance in torturous conditions that included three straight days of heavy gusts. of wind in southern Utah.
This year, weather is expected to play a lesser role as winds are expected to blow on Thursday while thunderstorms will be in the region on Friday.
The 2022 Epson Tour season began with two straight missed cuts for Dalton, much to his surprise. She has since managed two cuts made with the best finish in T19.
Despite his inconsistent start to the season, Dalton feels really good about his game.
During the offseason, Dalton made the transition from Dallas, Texas to Phoenix, Arizona in hopes of improving his game.
“I’m really happy to be back and hopefully I can improve on last year’s result,” Dalton told KSL Sports in an exclusive interview.
Additionally, Dalton paid a lot of attention to knowing how to play certain golf courses. She continues to grow and develop as a golfer and is determined to capitalize on the holes that allow her to score.
“It sounds really silly, but I’m really focused on my ability to score and make my way around the golf courses in a smarter way,” Dalton said.
