At The Turn and Heading HomeThe No. 11 Razorbacks have all played nine holes in the final round of the 2011 NCAA Women’s Golf Central Regional Championship in South Bend, Ind., Saturday.
At this point, Arkansas has moved up into a tie for sixth – a good position to be in as they strive to remain in the top eight to advance to the NCAA Championships later this month.
Redshirt freshman Emma Lavy was the first to turn. The Fayetteville, Ark., native was even through nine holes and picked up a birdie on No. 11 moving to one-under on the round.
Sophomore Victoria Vela opened her day with a bogey on the first hole but was even for the next eight to turn one-over through nine holes.
Senior Corinna Rees had a bit more activity on her scorecard but was still in good shape playing the front nine two-over. Rees had three quick bogies but finished birdie, bogey, birdie on seven, eight and nine for a 38 at the halfway point.
Senior Kelli Shean was even at the turn. Shean birdied the first hole of the day with a three on the par four and bogeyed four counting an even par 36 through nine holes.
Event leader freshman Emily Tubert made the turn at plus-two with three bogeys and a birdie in her round. She is still in the hunt for the individual title.
Looks like the weather is going to hold as well. Showers were expected this morning but tournament officials believe the storm is staying to the west and we should be OK. Temperatures have been up and down with players shedding clothes only to reach for them again on the next hole as the sun plays peak-a-boo with the clouds.
