Cougars sit fourth after second round of UCF Challenge
The 42nd ranked women’s golf team is tied for fourth place following the second round of the University of Central Florida Challenge, its first outing of the spring season.
Led by junior Emily Gilbreth and sophomore Megan Thothong, the Cougars equaled their total round score from yesterday and sit at +14 strokes over par, just six strokes back of the leader.
Gilberth and Thothong are tied for sixth place in the tournament, both at just +1 after shooting just one over par rounds.
They also sit just four strokes back of tournament leader, Michelle Butler from the University of Missouri, and F. Gustafsson Spang from East Carolina University, who lead everyone at -3 under par.
Thothong and Gilberth combined for seven birdies on Monday, but each dropped one stroke after their even-par rounds on the first day of competition.
Senior Raegan Bremer is next best on the Cougars’ squad at +5 over par for the tournament, with sophomores Yuka Kajiki and Maddy Rayner behind her with scores of +10 and +13 respectively.
The Cougars will wrap the tournament on Tuesday, where they will be paired with athletes from the University of Kentucky and the University of Texas. Tee times will begin at 8:45 a.m. in Jacksonville, Fla.
