Natalie Gulbis sets course record in U.S. Open qualifier, reminds everyone she's still really good at golf

June 02, 2015

Despite still being one of the LPGA Tour's biggest stars, Natalie Gulbis hasn't had the best 2015 season. Not that 2014 was much better.

In fact, Gulbis hasn't had a top 10 since the 2013 Women's British Open. And her lone LPGA victory remains the 2007 Evian Masters. But compared to 99.99 percent of the population, Gulbis is still really, really good at golf.

On Tuesday, Gulbis completed a rain-delayed qualifier at Galloway National Golf Club for the U.S. Women's Open. Not only did she earn a spot into the national championship, she won the event that consisted of 67 women by two shots.

In her first round, Gulbis even shot a course-record 66. Here's a look at her scorecard:

Despite a couple mistakes on her card (A blue marker? Really?) and despite her recent slump, the 32-year-old Californian proved she's still a serious golfer. See you at the Open, Natalie.
