Bucs Settle In After Turn, Stand at 11th After Two Rounds


GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept. 23, 2017)
– ETSU’s women’s golf team toiled on a hot day, but couldn’t stay near the top of the standings in the second day of the Lady Paladin Invitational in Greenville, S.C.

ETSU began the day in 5th place in a 17-team field, but a rough front nine in which every player was over par dropped the Bucs to 11th with one round left to play on the par-72, 6278-yard Furman University Golf Course.

The Bucs’ team score of 14-over par 302 Saturday put them at 600 for the tournament, three shots behind Augusta University for 10th place, five back of UNC-Wilmington for 9th, and six behind Southern Mississippi for 8th. Daytona State tops the team standings at 3-under par, four shots better than the host team, Furman.

Hee Ying Loy (Johor, Malaysia) nearly broke par for the second straight day, but a bogey on 18 left her at 1-over 73 on the day and at 141 for the first two rounds. The reigning Southern Conference Player of the Year is tied for 6th overall, eight shots back of the leader, Jiwon Jeon of Daytona State.

Kornbongkoat Sararat (Nongkhai, Thailand) posted a 2-over par 74. The freshman birdied three of the first four holes on the back nine and stands 27th on the individual leaderboard at 5-over 149 for the tournament.

Tereza Melecka (Belcovice, Czech Republic) steadied herself after the turn, going 1-under par over the last six holes to end the day at 4-over 76. At 153 over the first two days, she’s tied for 51st.

Ankita Kedlaya (Bangalore, India) also closed well, going 1-over par over the last six holes on the way to a 79. She’s tied for 61st. Yeji Ahn (Chang Won City, South Korea) carded an 80, leaving her tied for 76th at 159 for the weekend.

The third and final round of the Lady Paladin is scheduled for Sunday, September 24.
