AUGUSTA, Ga. (March 14, 2015) – With all five players in its lineup posting scores in the 70s, the ETSU women’s golf team improved on its first round result by 14 strokes, finishing second round play in 10th place Saturday in the 3M Jaguar Intercollegiate at the Forest Hills Golf Club.
Redshirt freshman Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic) carded a team-best round of 1-over-par 72 to lead the Buccaneers, while junior Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) currently holds the team’s best position on the individual leaderboard with a tie for 20th after posting a 2-over 73 on Saturday. Czudkova and sophomore Rachel Pollock (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) are both currently tied for 32nd.
“My goals today were to shoot par on all of the Par 5s and I did it,” Chin said. “I was aggressive today and I felt really good. I just had some putts that didn’t sink for me. My plan will be to do the same thing that worked today: play easy, hit fairways and greens in regulation, and give myself chances for birdies.”
No. 43 Coastal Carolina stands at 11-over-par as a team following second round play, and tops the leaderboard by four strokes over No. 21 Furman. Individually, Coastal’s Malene Krolboll Hansen fired an impressive 6-under-par 65 on Saturday to move into the individual lead, three strokes ahead of Furman’s Alice Chen.
Other ETSU results include a tie for 57th by sophomore Linda Dobele (Ogre, Latvia) and a tied for 62nd by freshman Allyson Dunn (Kingsport).
