The final results were not what 18-hole leader Maude-Aimee Leblanc (Sherbrooke, Quebec) had in mind, but the Purdue University All-American remains optimistic. An even-par 72 final round in Riverside County for the 10-year professional put her at 7-under overall, good for a tie for second.
“It feels good to be back in the swing of things. My game is in the good place and my mental game as well, that is more important to me,” said Leblanc.
Schubert starts the 2021 season with back-to-back top-10 finishes and is eager for the rest of the season, yet happy to see two weeks off before the next event. She plans to take the break ahead of the inaugural Casino del Sol Golf Classic to fine tune parts of her game she feels need some help after the opening weeks.
“I am going to take a couple days off and go and see my coach, just tweak a few things and focus on a few things that I want to work on,” said Schubert. “I would just say that I was really proud of myself in my patience. Today for example I wasn’t putting very well. I was hitting the ball well, but I tried not to get too emotional try not to get too upset and just stayed patient in there at the end they fell.”
