In this series we focus on how golfers prepare for a tournament round, both when at home and immediately prior to the round. We interviewed Italy´s Margherita Rigon and here we hear what she did right before she teed-off at 9:05 on Day 3 at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France:

6:00 Wake up call and shower

6:30 Breakfast: Gluten-free bread with some ham and cheese, a cup of tea and maybe some Nutella

7:00 Back to the room and stretching exercises for 15 minutes

7:15 I took the bus from hotel to golf course

7:30 At Golf course. First thing I do is to have a coffee before starting practicing.

7:40 Putting green- I start practicing my putting, first I do the drill with the line to see how the ball rolls.

8:00-8:10 Short game -Chip

8:10 Driving Range- I start with 56, then 52, pitching wedge and then 8 iron, 6 iron, 4 iron, a couple of 3 woods and then driver. I always finish with the 7-iron.

8:45 Putting green- Few short putts and then I go to the tee, but always after finishing holing my last 3 short putts in a row

8:55 On the 1st tee- I tie my shoes and get my marker from the bag and the yardage book. I put not too many tees in my pocket, just a short one and 2-3 long ones. Then I get at least 3 bottles of water, because I drink a lot, 1 banana, the local rules, I switch the scorecards and finally, I am ready to go. I mark my balls normally the night before.

9:05 Tee off

We will see Margherita Rigon this week playing the Sanya Ladies Open in China from 25th October.
