TIFOSI OPTICS LOW SUNDAY ROUND: Emily Talley, who won Big Break NFL with teammate Jerry Rice, shot a tournament-best 7-under 65 in the final round of the Visit Mesa Gateway Classic at Longbow Golf Club and finished in a tie for third place at 9-under-par for the tournament.
She is the recipient of a pair of Tifosi Optics sunglasses for having the low round on Sunday. After each week, Tifosi Optics, the exclusive sunglasses of the Symetra Tour, will provide a pair of sunglasses to the player that shoots the low round on Sunday.
Talley started the day tied for 15th at 2-under. The former University of Colorado golfer made three pars and a bogey on her first four holes before finding a groove. She birdied the fifth and seventh holes and eagled the ninth to make the turn at 5-under for the tournament.
“I felt really good, I’ve been told not to try to win the tournament on the first hole and I think this is the first time I actually listened to that,” said Talley. “I started sticking it, then I started making putts and then I made eagle on number nine.”
Talley, a second-year professional on the Symetra Tour, continued her strong play on the back nine. She made three more birdies and steered bogey-free on the back nine.
“I focused all three days, I never turned it off and felt like I was constantly in the moment,” said Talley. “Today was just out of this world, I don’t know where it came from but it was just awesome.”
Talley had just one top-10 finish on the Symetra Tour last year when she tied for ninth at the Volvik Championship.
“This was my lowest round in competition that I’ve ever shot,” said Talley. “I’ve had to overcome a lot of nerves and last year was really good for me, but this really showed that maybe I’m going up still and I can’t wait to see what happens.”
