GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept. 25, 2016) – On the final day of the 2016 Lady Paladin Invitational, Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic) and Loy Hee Ying (Baru, Kulaijaya, Malaysia) recorded team lows, and the ETSU women’s golf team moved into the top-10 after shooting its best round in Greenville, S.C. on Sunday.
Czudkova shot a career-best 3-under 69 en route to improving 27 spots on the individual leaderboard. She finished tied for 34th with a 5-over 221 (75-77-69), and she also recorded an eagle on her final hole of the tournament for the seventh overall eagle of the Lady Paladin.
Loy finished in the top-5 individually after inking a 1-under 71 in the final round. She sank three birdies – with all coming on par fives – and 13 pars at the Furman Golf Course. In the three-day outing, she finished with 12 birdies and 34 pars to her best finish since the Rebel Intercollegiate in April, where she finished tied for 2nd.
