UofA Media Relations
Posted Oct 26, 2013
WILMINGTON, N.C. – The Alabama women’s golf team shot its lowest first round of the season on Friday to claim the lead at The Landfall Tradition on the par-72 6,244-yard Country Club of Landfall.
“I’m really proud of how everyone played today,”
Coach Mic Potter said following the round. “They hung in there, played well and kept a good attitude and outlook all day. If we do that the rest of the year we will be fine.
“With the conditions we had starting out – 45 degrees and 10-15 mph winds – I think they just knew they were going to have to grind out every shot. They didn’t focus on outcomes or results, they just played golf to the best of their ability on every shot, and that is kind of what we have been lacking. Today it was about getting it around the golf course the best we can, and they did that very well.”
The Crimson Tide has a 10-shot lead over
heading into Saturday’s second round at 3-under 285. It was 11 shots better in relation to par than any first round the Tide have played this season (8-over 296 at the Mason Rudolph). The Blue Devils shot 7-over 295 while
(+12, 300) is third,
(+16, 304) is fourth and
(+15, 305) fifth.
Alabama played the 16th, 17th and 18th holes at 9-under par, 11 shots better than the next best teams over that stretch (Duke,
Senior Stephanie Meadow holds the individual lead after 18 holes with her 2-under round of 70. Alabama had three of the five under-par scores in the 95-player field on Friday with senior Hannah Collier and sophomore Emma Talley tied for second at 1-under 71.
All five Tide players birdied the par-5 18th as Alabama extended its lead. Meadow earned the individual lead with three birdies and bogey on the back nine after nine straight pars to begin her round. Talley had an eagle, three birdies and four bogeys for her 71.
Collier fired her first below-par round of the fall with four birdies, a bogey and double bogey, but her best shot of the day was a hole out for par on the par-3 16th after hitting her first shot in the water.
Sophomore Janie Jackson was Alabama’s fourth score and tied for eighth after shooting 73, making three straight birdies to end her round. Daniela Lendl made two birdies in her final three holes as well to shot 74. Cammie Gray shot 87 playing as an individual.
Alabama is scheduled to begin teeing off at 9:09 a.m. Saturday and will be paired with Duke and South Carolina during the second round at the Country Club of Landfall.
