LUBBOCK, Texas - After a month's wait, Texas Tech golfer Gabby Dominguez is set to play in her first career major championship Thursday when she tees off the 67th U.S. Women's Open at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wisc.
Dominguez will be in the final group for Thursday's opening round as she is paired with Sue Kim and Haru Nomura in the 2:42 p.m. CT starting time from the 10th tee. ESPN2 will air the opening two rounds, beginning at 3 p.m. each day while NBC will broadcast the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday.
Dominguez, who arrived to the course site on Sunday, played in two practice rounds on Monday and Tuesday and caught up with texastech.com immediately following.
My early-morning travel to the U.S. Women's Open was pretty nerve-wracking. I didn't really know what to expect from the course or the atmosphere of competing in a major championship. Upon arriving to Blackwolf Run, there were numerous signs advertising the event on the highway and many people lining up to see the first practice rounds of the participants.
My hard work has lead me to a great opportunity, a BIG opportunity! The course is beautiful, green, and challenging. To play well on this course, length, accuracy, and consistency are key. I feel great about my game and have one more practice round to obtain more information from the course that will help me play my best in the tournament.
It's kind of weird but also pretty cool to compete with professional players that you have looked up to and aspire to be like. I know that each day here will teach me something new about my game and in turn will make me a better player.
Thanks for all the support and Guns Up!
