Banner Graphic:What is your offseason training like?

Lauren Bridgewater: Normally I don't play golf in the summer. I actually went to some tournament this summer. I did some home matches and that was good for me. It definitely helped me a lot. Last year I could barely break 50. This year I've been in the 40s.

BG: What is different about being a senior this year?

LB: I guess, it's my attitude toward the team. I'm more of a leader.

BG: What are your team and individual goals for golf this year?

LB: My individual goal is to break 40 by the end of the year. So hopefully I will be able to do that. Out team goal is we wanted to break 200, which we did.

BG: What is it going to take for you to break 40?

LB: Just little strict here and there. My putting is sometimes off. Then other times its my drive. So it just depends on the day.

BG: What life lessons have you learned from playing sports?

LB: definitely how to handle different kinds of people. Also how to stay focused. Some times its hard to stay focused but golf has definitely helped me a lot with that and how to work hard to get my goals.

BG: Who are your best friends on the team and how much have you learned over the years from your teammates?

LB: Macey Masten is a freshman this year. I love her to death. My sister and Haley Cash. We normally probably wouldn't hang out. But we play golf together we talk a lot. I've learned how other people look at me because we are all really different group. We have a variety of people. So I've learned how to treat people.

BG: What are your plans after high school?

LB: Right now I really want to go to University of Evansville or USI. I'm going to try and play golf in college. I'm majoring in business or pre-med. I'm not sure yet.
