Phoenix, AZ – Native American golfer Alexandrea Schulte, a member of the Northern Ute Tribe, took home second place honors this week at the Cactus Tour’s Foothills Country club event in Phoenix, Arizona. Schulte carded a two day total of (149) on the desert course which was one shot a head for a three way tie for third place and seven shots back of the winner. The winner of the Cactus Tour event carded a two day total of (142).
Schulte, a former University of Arkansas golfer and recent graduate, shot a 75 on the opening day despite having six 3 putts in the round. “Hopefully I can figure out the speed of these greens, they are so slow compared to what I have been practicing on, but I will get them figured out.” said Schulte. The 75 opening round left her in the third position after the first day.
On the final round, Schulte performed much better on the greens and was able to improve her position into the second place where she remained for the tournament. Alex also had the third best score on the final round with a 74 in the heated conditions.
Next up for Alex is another Cactus Tour event in Glendale, Arizona at the Ocotillo Golf resort which is taking place on August 13-15th, so if your in the area go and check out Alex and support our Native American athletes.
