ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. — The eighth-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf team resumed weather-delayed play and are in the top five at the turn at the 2008 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in Albuquerque, N.M. Friday.
Arkansas and 11 other teams suffered through yet another weather delay with an hour wait due to lightning from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. central. But the Lady’Backs have played well and are just four-over at the turn.
Junior Lucy Nunn has played well both in the third and now the early part of the fourth rounds. Nunn, a Lawton, Okla., native, eagled the ninth hole dropping two strokes to help Arkansas. Nunn hit her second shot well just to the right side of the green and drained her putt for eagle.
Sophomore Kristin Ingram landed a birdie on the sixth hole after hitting her tee shot within four feet of the pin. Senior Stacy Lewis opened play with a birdie moving up to sixth overall with a 30-foot birdied putt.
The weather continues to hamper play and is expected to stop teams yet again. Tournament officials are concerned about darkness as well and there is talk of pushing the rest of the final round to Saturday.
