Kirby Dreher discusses LPGA season opener

Fort St. John pro golfer Kirby Dreher began her first LPGA event of the season Friday, playing in the Florida Natural Charity Classic. Prior to the start of the event, Moose FM’s Sean Assor spoke with Dreher as she prepared for her season debut.

SA: Have you ever played this course before, other than practice rounds?

KD: Yes, this will be my third time playing this tournament, and we also had a few rounds of the Futures Tour Q School here a few years ago. I know the course very well and have probably played it 20th times or so.

SA: Do you feel that experience is beneficial for this weekend?

KD: I do feel it’s beneficial to me. I have my yardage book from the first time I played here competitively and it’s nice to see what clubs I have hit on par 3’s in previous years, and also the wind direction and where previous year’s hole locations have been.

SA: Was there anything specific you focused on in training for this event?

KD: I have worked really hard on my short game in the past month and feel that if I can make a few more putts than normal I should fare pretty well. With some solid ball striking and a great short game I think I have a chance to win this tournament!

SA: I checked the weather for the weekend and it looks like there could be some rainy conditions. If it does rain does that affect the way you approach the weekend?

KD: Not really, the only thing you really have to adjust to is less roll on your tee shots and softer greens. I don’t think that should be a problem, plus everyone else has to play in it too so it shouldn’t change too much. We had rain so much last year that I think I am pretty well adjusted to the changing weather conditions.


Following the first day of play, Dreher sits tied for 120th, shooting a five-over 77. She finished her first round with seven pars, eight bogeys and three birdies.

Entering day two, she sits 10 strokes behind first place America Seul-Ki Park, who opened her tournament with a five-under, 67.
