The wind is certainly blowing a gale at Old MacDonald today. Early in the round, Christine Wolf is pacing the field, making the turn at 2-under 32. Wolf, a native of Austria who graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga last month, earned a full exemption into this WAPL field by qualifying for the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open.
Nipping at Wolf’s heels is defending WAPL champion Emily Tubert, who posted a first nine at 1-over 48. Tubert’s constant companion through last year’s championship was her father and caddie, Marcelo, who is back on her bag at Bandon. Their close relationship was apparent through the early part of her round, and even displayed last evening, as the two were sighted fishing together in one of the lakes here at the Bandon Dunes facility.
