Reid Isaac felt at home in her home state.
Isaac, a junior on Kansas State’s women’s golf team, birdied three of the final four holes Tuesday at the Forest Invitational in Dallas. Isaac is from Montgomery, Texas, which is north of Houston.
Isaac made a tournament-best 15 birdies and finished at 2-under par overall to tie for fifth place. K-State placed seventh as a team with a combined score of 897, two shots short of sixth-place Memphis.
Isaac won the event as a freshman. Though she came up short Tuesday, Isaac was proud of her efforts.
“My goal was just to get off of the (back nine at) par or better and then I could go low on the front nine and finish out well,” Isaac said in a release. “Unfortunately, that wasn’t the way the back nine went for me. That was really tough, but I knew I could come back and at least get around par. I had to fight for every single shot today. I had quite a few three putts, but I definitely had a lot of birdies to make up for those. It was a constant battle between birdies and bogeys for me.”
