Women's Golf Moves Into 9th Place After A Final Round 327March 13, 2012
POTTSBORO, Texas (March 13, 2012) — Cameron’s Women’s Golf Team improved its day one score by 15 strokes Tuesday, posting a final round 327, en route to a 9th place finish with a 670. Lindsey Alexander posted a 75 (+3) on the day to help pull the team’s cumulative score up.
“Somebody (Alexander) stepped up today,” said Head Coach Rick Goodwin. “That’s what I’ve been saying all along ― if you have one kid step up you can live with a couple bad scores. Lindsey (Alexander) had three or four birdies. That set the tone for her.”
Alexander finished with a total score of 163 to tie for 15th place with fellow CU golfer, Jaqueline Strickland, who finished with a final round 80 (+8). Aleesha Holden shot an 86 (+14) on the day to finish in a tie for 42nd with a total score of 170. Candice Swartz also posted an 86 (+14) for a 174, tied for 55th. Johnna Holden improved her first day score by five strokes with a final round 90 (+18), tying for 87th place with a 185.
“I’m sure a lot of teams played better today … we were one of them,” Goodwin said. “We accomplished our goal. Lindsey really stepped up, and that was the difference. We are pleased that we improved. We want to do that every time we come out.”
Tarleton State took home the tournament title with a 631, followed by West Texas A&M (636) and Central Oklahoma (644). Arkansas Tech’s Rebecka Surtevall shot a 151 (+7) to take the individual title.
Cameron will now set its sights on the MSU Invitational next week, being played at The Champions Golf Course at the Weeks Park Golf Club in Wichita Falls, Texas.
