Results day 2
In freezing temperatures at the Annika Invitational in Orlando, both Bertine Strauss (75) and Connie Chen (76) played solid rounds on day one to lie in 10th and 17th positions respectively. And after the round, Annika spent time with the players giving them a clinic with lots of good advice - both Connie and Bertine were able to demonstrate shots with her.
Connie Chen days that she had the best day of her life when she went to practice at Champions Gate on Wednesday 10 February in Orlando, Florida and met Trevor Immelman and Suzanne Petterson. As if that was not interesting enough I also got time with David Leadbetter.
