“We will continue to work on course management, what clubs to use in certain situations and our short chips from 20 and 30 yards out,” said Tribe coach Kent Smith. “We are making good contact, but unfortunately too good, where we end up beyond the flag. I am optimistic though that we will improve a lot more moving forward.”
