FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE – The 9th ranked Lady Razorback Golf Team’s opening round 16-over par 304 has them in sixith place at the 2006 SEC Women’s Golf Championship Friday. “We struggled a little bit today and it was tough with the wind. We didn’t putt as well as we normally do.”, said Arkansas head coach Kelley Hester. “Amanda played well, Stacy hung in there, and Lindsey hung in there too. We’re not in a bad position, but I think we can play this golf course much better.” Senior Amanda McCurdy led the way for Arkansas with a one-over par round of 73 which has her tied for third. “Every bogey I had was from the middle of the fairway but it shows me that I can play out here.”, said the El Dorado native whose round included four birdies and five bogeys. “I missed a few putts, but overall I played pretty solid except for some unfortunate bogeys which I’m sure I’ll be thinking about tonight.” Sophomore Stacy Lewis, the defending SEC Champion, opened with a 3-over 75 which has her tied for 10th place. Senior Lindsey Hinshaw closed with a birdie on 18 to finish with a 77. Senior Courtney Mahon, who was stung by a bee on the 3rd hole but played on, carded a 79 while Sophomore Ashley Medders shot an opening round 82.
