McDonald, who came back from foot surgery earlier this summer, was not exactly thrilled with her score of 50 in a Mid-Suburban League tri-meet last week against Prospect and Palatine at Makray Memorial. How did she rebound? How about a career-best and medalist round of 39 at Rob Roy Golf Course in Prospect Heights on Wednesday afternoon?
