FRANKLIN, Tenn. – The 18th-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf team finished 12th at the Mason Rudolph Championship in Franklin, Tenn., Sunday. Arkansas posted at final round 300 for 897 (298-299-300) on the par 72, 6,262-yard Legends Club. Sophomore Kelli Shean paced Arkansas in the final round with an even-par 72. “I’m really proud of Kelli,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Este-Taylor. “She played another great round of final golf for us. Lucy (Nunn) was solid today as well.” Nunn, a Lawton, Okla., native, was Arkansas’ low finisher with a final round 73 for 221 (73-75-73). Nunn tied for 23rd overall. Junior Alex Schulte opened tournament play with a career-best 69 followed by rounds of 77-78 for a 224 and a tie for 39th place. Shean finished tied for 50th overall with a 227 (79-76-72), followed by junior Kristin Ingram who tied for 60th overall carding a 230 (78-75-77). Freshman Katy Nugent wrapped up the Razorback scoring. Nugent tied for 70th overall with 233 (78-73-72). “We just have to ham-and-egg it a little better,” said Estes-Taylor. “There are a lot of things we have to come home and work on. Everyone’s got it. Everyone’s contributed with a nice low round, we just have to be more consistent. When one player is down, we have to pick them up.” Third-ranked UCLA won the event finishing 14-under with an 850. The top five included No. 1 Southern California at 856, No. 6 Oklahoma State with 863, vote-getter and host Vanderbilt in fourth with 868 and No. 2 Arizona State with 873. The rest of the field included No. 5 Duke (882), No. 7 Alabama (883), No. 12 Purdue (890), No. 15 Florida (894), No. 17 Arizona (896), No. 18 Arkansas (897), RV UT-Chattanooga (902), No. 10 Wake Forest (903), No. 19 Stanford (907), RV Tennessee (911) and Central Florida (914).
