FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas junior Kristin Ingram fired a three-over 75 to lead the 19th-ranked Razorback women’s golf team at the rain-shorted Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic in Athens, Ga., Sunday. Ingram and the Razorbacks suffered through two days of waiting as tournament official cancelled Friday and Saturday’s rounds due to weather. When the skies cleared, Arkansas posted a 210 to finish 14th in the field of 18. “It is unfortunate that we couldn’t get in three rounds of golf,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. “We were flat today. We didn’t play at a high level and it showed in the results.” Ingram’s three-over 75 was good for a tie for 13th overall. Senior Lucy Nunn was close on her heels with a four-over 76 and a tie for 19th place. Junior Alex Schulte tied for 50th overall with a 79 while sophomore Kelli Shean tied for 60th place with an 80. Freshman Katy Nugent rounded out the Arkansas scores with an 11-over 83 tying for 79th overall. “We had to come out firing today and we didn’t,” said Estes-Taylor. “Conditions were tough – it was cold and windy but that’s no excuse. We lost some shots on the greens today.” Southeastern Conference foe Auburn won the one-day event with an 11-over 299. Sixth-ranked Alabama tied No. 29 Kent State for second at 302, followed by No. 13 North Carolina and No. 25 Ohio State in a tie for fourth with 304. SEC members No. 8 Georgia and No. 9 LSU tied for sixth overall with 305, followed by No. 3 Virginia with 306, and No. 43 Kentucky, No. 38 Ole Miss and No. 5 Oklahoma State in a tie for ninth overall with 308. “We’re going to use the next three days to work on some things I saw out there today,” said Estes-Taylor. “We’re going to hit the putting greens this week and get ready for our next tournament.” The Razorbacks head east next weekend for the Bryan National in Browns Summitt, N.C., April 3-5, in the final event before the SEC Championship.
