JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 27, 2016) – After finishing fourth at the 3M Augusta Invitational two weeks ago, the ETSU women’s golf team will travel to Kennesaw, Ga. to play in a three round, two-day tournament at the Pinetree Country Club on March 28.
About the Courses and Tournament
The 18 hole, par-72 course in Kennesaw will be where the Buccaneers will play their third tournament of the 2016 spring season. The two-day tournament is held at the 6,032 yard Pinetree Country Club.
The first and second rounds will be held on March 28 starting at 9:15 a.m. on a shotgun start. The Blue and Gold will begin on holes 8-11 and will be paired with Old Dominion and South Florida. The final day will begin on March 29 with a second shotgun start at 9:15 a.m. The host of the two-day tournament is Kennesaw State University.
There are 12 participating teams at the Henssler Financial Intercollegiate. The highest-ranking team is No. 26 Texas Tech, who is coming off an eighth place finish in Charleston, S.C. Other highly ranked teams include: No. 34 Augusta (hosted the previous ETSU tournament in Augusta, Ga.) and No. 53 Old Dominion.
Who’s Shooting Well
Hee Ying Loy (Baru, Kulaijaya, Malaysia) has been red hot for the Bucs. In her last five tournaments, she finished in the top 20 four times. She is coming off her best finish in Augusta where she finished tied for 2nd by shooting a 212 in the three rounds. She recorded six straight birdies in the outing to lead ETSU, and she looks to build off the momentum two weeks ago as the team hits the links at the KSU tournament.
Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia) has finished in the top ten in three of her last four tournaments. Her best outing was in early October where she finished tied 3rd, but she finished tied for seventh and tenth in her last two outings at the Kiawah Island Classic and 3M Augusta Invitational.
