Korey Thompson has problem any coach would love to have.

The second year Augusta State women's golf coach is facing a number of battles on the course between her players, key among those the one between Lady Jags stars Natalie Wille and Casey Kennedy.

The two have both picked up wins this season, and Wille actually has four straight top five finishes.

Don't think there's any lack of love between them though. These two thrive on their friendly competition, and the ASU is better off for it.

"It's always awesome when you have teammates that are able to win tournaments and have your back and everything," Kennedy said. "It's kind of fun, and we'll see who wins the next one."

Wille added, "We were joking around a little bit about alternating wins, so we definitely motivate each other."

The Lady Jags are back in action next week over in Charleston. They have two more tournaments before the NCAA Regionals.
