Martinson’s 78 puts her on top of women’s contest

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

When you’re hot, you’re hot.

And right now, Tami Martinson is swinging about as hot a club as she ever has.

Just two days after what she called the best round of her career, Martinson fired a 6-over in Saturday’s first round of the Los Alamos Ladies’ City Championship. Her opening round 78 gives her a 6-shot advantage of her nearest competitor heading into today’s second and final round.

Today’s final 18 holes is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m.

Following her opening round, Martinson said she wasn’t trying to do anything fancy Saturday.

“I was just wanting a nice, even round,” she said. “I was just trying to hang in there.”

Her strategy seemed to work just fine, finishing with a 39 on both sides of the turn. Martinson took nothing worse than a bogey anywhere and birdied both the 12th and 16th holes to grab the lead.

Going into the day, Martinson was hoping she hadn’t used up all her best shots for the week. Thursday, she finished with 76 playing at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe, a course she lists as one of her favorites.
