GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept. 23, 2014) – For the second straight day, junior Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) posted a team-best score of 2-over-par 74 and ultimately ended as the top ETSU women’s golfer on the individual leaderboard following Tuesday’s third and final round play in the Lady Paladin Invitational at the Furman Golf Club.
Chin, who tied for 27th, and the rest of her Buccaneer teammates finished the event with a third round score of 305 and placed 11th in the team competition. Host Furman dominated the event, posting an overall team score of 860 and besting second place Wake Forest by 14 strokes.
ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton said her young squad is going through a process.
“We obviously didn’t have the tournament finish that we want, but this is a young squad and they are learning every day,” Shelton said. “The challenge now is trusting and playing confidently with all that we have learned. With patience, this journey is going to lead to great things.”
Individually, Furman’s Taylor Totland made it a sweep for the Paladins, wrapping up the three-day event with an overall score of 7-under-par 209 to best Yale’s Jennifer Peng by five strokes.
Along with Chin, other ETSU results included a tie for 48th by freshman Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic), a tie for 54th by sophomore Linda Dobele (Ogre, Latvia), and a tie for 64th by Allyson Dunn (Kingsport, Tenn.).
The Bucs will return to action on Friday, Oct. 17 at the Mercedes Benz Championship in Knoxville, Tenn. For more on ETSU women’s golf throughout the 2014-15 season, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the women’s golf link.
