Does winning ever get old? Not for the Vanderbilt Women’s Golf Team who won for the 5th time this season, tying a program record.
The No. 5 ranked ‘Dores took the Clemson Invitational with a -21 team score of 555. They took down the No. 12 FSU, No. 14 Auburn, No. 17 UVA, and No. 18 Michigan State teams, among SEC foes, TAMU, Hunter’s Orange, LSU, and Kentucky.
Inclement weather shortened the third round, but that did not diminish the ‘Dores’ victory. They second place Auburn Tigers were eight shots off the lead. Vandy beat the doors (pun intended!) of the field.
While only five other teams finished under par, the rest of the field struggled at the Reserve at Lake Keowee. But not the Vandy golfers. They led scoring on Par 3’s and were second in scoring on Par 4’ and 5’s. They also carded the most birdies of any team in the field with 38. Auston Kim post 13 on her own, giving her the most in the field.
This Vanderbilt squad is peaking at the right time for a run through SECs, Regionals, and NCAAs. SEC’s are in Birmingham and start April 17. Regionals May 6-8, and NCAA’s May 17-22 in lovely Fayetteville.
