Dyar bounces back

Incoming JSU freshman shoots 80 in North & South by eliminating big numbers from her round

By East Alabama Sports Today

PINEHURST, N.C. – Anniston’s Hanna Dyar had a better day in the second round of the North & South Junior Girls Tuesday because of one simple approach: Keep the big numbers that plagued her opening round to a minimum.
The White Plains graduate and incoming Jacksonville State freshman shot an 8-over-par 80 on Pinehurst No. 6, a six-shot improvement over her opening-round score on the famed No. 2 course. She stands at 166 after two rounds.
“The difference between yesterday and today was I eliminated the big numbers today,” Dyar said. “My goal for today was to have no worse numbers than bogey. Double bogeys will kill a good round.
“Although I still didn’t play how I wanted to today, I was proud of myself for eliminating the big numbers. I’m hoping to go low tomorrow.”
Four doubles or “others” inflated her score in Round 1. She had none of those in Round 2 and even made a birdie to get back to even for the day. She turned with a 2-over 38.
She plays at 8:51 a.m. local time off the tenth tee on No. 6 Wednesday.
Emily Mathews of Mebone, N.C., and Bailey Davis of White Plains, Md., are tied for the lead at 1-under 143.
