"I try to set a goal of shooting in the 80s every round," said Hailey Johnson.
The season started off pretty rough, she said, but she has continued to improve.
"I shot my best score of 80 last week so now I want to make a goal of breaking 80 before the season is over," said Johnson.
Johnson said she struggles most with her sand game the most, but her putting has improved and that helps a lot.

Student passes out in North Parking Lot
An older student was found unconscious in the North Parking Lot on April 13 by Public Safety. Reports were that the individual tripped and fell, hitting their head on the pavement.
The student was then transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
A 1997 Honda Civic was stolen in the South Lot on April 13 at 1:20 p.m. Des Moines Police showed up on scene and took a report. It is unknown if the vehicle was ever found.
Public Safety advises students with a 1990 to early 2000 Honda Civic or Accord models to purchase a wheel lock because those cars are easy money makers for thieves.
Some Honda models have few universal keys, making those cars very accessible too.
An epic epi-flub
A nursing student accidently injected himself at 9:10 a.m. on April 14 with a real epi-pen in class when he intended to use a prop.
A medical call was placed and the student was checked out by medics. The individual did not suffer from any complications and made a full recovery, according to Public Safety.
Way too buzzed
An intoxicated male was found by Public Safety locked out of his vehicle in the South Lot on April 14 at 6 a.m. Des Moines Police responded and the man cooperated with authorities. The man said he was having a dispute with a roommate and he was trying to get away. Des Moines Police offered to drive the man home, but he declined and a friend of the man picked him up. The man was not indicted by police.
