KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (Oct. 26, 2014) – Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia), Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic) and Allyson Dunn (Kingsport, Tenn.) are all tied for 42nd, while the ETSU women’s golf team is tied for 13th after first round play concluded at the Palmetto Intercollegiate on Sunday at the Turtle Point Golf Course.
Chin, Czudkova and Dunn all carded a 4-over-par 76 and the Bucs totaled a team score of 17-over-par 305 in the opening round of the three-day tournament. Dunn led the Blue and Gold with three birdies, but it was a triple-bogey on the par-5, 472-yard No. 2 that cost the Buccaneer rookie from finishing near the individual leaders.
Coastal Carolina fired a 6-under-par 282 and holds the team lead by three strokes over 30th-ranked Furman. The Chanticleers and Paladins were the only teams to finish below par as No. 25 GRU Augusta (formerly Augusta State) and No. 39 Kansas are tied for third at even-par 288.
Individually, Eunice Yi (GRU Augusta) and Coastal Carolina’s Lena Schaeffner are tied atop the leaderboard at 4-under-par 68 after 18 holes of play. The duo enter Monday’s second round one shot ahead of Kansas’ Yupaporn Kawinpakorn.
Along with the trio of Buccaneers tied for 42nd, sophomore Rachel Pollock (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) is tied for 48th at 5-over-par 77. Pollock was 1-over through 14, but played the final four holes at five-over.
ETSU is tied with No. 31 Campbell.
Second round play begins at 9 a.m. on Monday, while the Bucs tee off at 11:12 a.m. from No. 10. ETSU is paired with Kansas and Furman.
