An Odd Definition of a "Bad Round"

You know that old phrase: If you can't do, teach?

MSU women's golf coach Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll has either never heard of it, or doesn't care.

Slobodnik-Stoll won the Michigan Women's Mid-Amateur Wednesday with a five-over 146 at Redford's Western Golf and Country Club, defeating her nearest rival by four strokes. It was her - get this - fifth straight victory in the tournament.

I love her quote to the Free Press about her final round, a four-over 76 that would have left duffers like the two authors of this site weeping for joy:
"It was kind of a scrape-it-around round," Slobodnik-Stoll said. "I wouldn't say anything was working really well for me today. There was no point where I felt like it was coming together for me."

When things "don't come together" for me, I lose nine balls, break a club head and card a 114. Slobodnik-Stoll has a bad round and whips every other amateur in her class by four.
