JOHNSON, Ark. – University of Arkansas incoming freshman Emily Tubert is tied for second place at the AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions at Blessings, in Johnson, Ark., Thursday.

Tubert, who was tied for the lead after the second round, carded a 75 on Thursday for a 221 (74-72-75). The Burbank, Calif., native trails the leader by two strokes and she is one-up on the fourth-place finisher with a round to play.

Tubert struggled a bit on the front nine playing five-over with a double on the sixth hole. She rallied on the second nine, however, playing it two under with a 33. Her round included birdies on seven, 10 and 16.

Play concludes with the final round Friday.
