A week of buildup to the start of the Curtis Cup can be overwhelming for the participants when the time finally arrives to hit some golf shots.
Just ask Jennifer Johnson.
The U.S. Amateur runner-up was charged with hitting the first drive for America Friday in the opening foursomes match.
"There were definitely some nerves there," Johnson said.
Apparently, even more than she wanted to admit. Her partner, U.S. Women's Am champion Jennifer Song, spilled on the truth.
"Actually, I had planned to tee up her ball on the first tee because she was feeling so shaky," Song said with a laugh. "But she ended up doing just fine. And she hit it good, too."
