Four Winds Invitational: Former ND Golfer Weaver back in South Bend, says transferring "What was best for me."

Lindsey Weaver's time at Notre Dame was short, but she made the most of it.

The Arizona native was named the number one women's golfer in the nation her freshman season at Notre Dame, guiding the Irish into the NCAA Regionals in 2013. Weaver would transfer the following season to Arizona, but said Wednesday she only remembers the good times at Notre Dame.

"In the end, had to do what was best for me," Weaver said.

This week marks Weaver's second time she has returned to South Bend, returning in 2015 when for the NCAA Regionals held at the Warren Golf Course, something she admits had an odd feeling.

:"Returning was definitley strange, yeah I was excited about it and ended up playing pretty well in the tournament too I got like third or something but yeah definitley strange coming to play the Warren course, being on an opposing team but I still had a little course knowledge," Weaver said.

And Weaver mentioned Wednesday during her appearance in the pro-am, it's still pretty special being back at Notre Dame even though her time was limited.

"I just associate the university with a strong sense of tradition and I guess it's kind of like just a magical place, I went to visit last night and went for a little jog around campus and it's still very special to me and I had a lot of good times there met a lot of great people there. It's just cool to be back and a little sense of familiarity finally," Weaver said.

Weaver is currently ranked 10th on the Symetra Tour money list and is scheduled to tee off Friday morning at 8:25 a.m.
