Ruffels recounted the day. 

"It was kind of a weird round today," explained Ruffels. "I started off two ahead, and then we got called off due to weather on the first green. I had like a four-foot birdie putt that I had to sit and think about. Then I made my first bogey of the week at number two, so I got a little unsettled there. Other than that, I played pretty steady golf coming in, so I was pretty happy." 

With three wins under her belt this season, Ruffels will take a well-earned break in her California home and return to the green for the Canadian (CPCK) Women's Open, continuing the LGPA Tour.
