Auburn moves into ninth place at NCAA Women’s Golf Championship

Auburn University

Athens, GA (WIAT)-The Auburn women’s golf team surged in Day 3 of the NCAA Championship.

The Tigers carded a 3-under-par 285 to finish the day at 18-over 882 for the tournament.

Auburn tied for the lowest round of the day and moved up into a three way tie for ninth going into Friday’s final round.

The Tigers had an early start because of yesterday’s inclement weather and finished up the second round with a 4-over 292.

That momentum carried over into the third round as the Tigers notched 17 birdies to card its second-lowest round of the season.

“The first day, the team seemed a bit rattled, but I think Coach Evans flying in and the team seeing her out of the course really settled them,” said student assistant Danielle Downey. “She gave a couple tips and it seemed to work. Each day, we’ve gotten better and hopefully tomorrow will be our best day.

“We’ve bounced back two days in a row, and it’s good to see. It’s a sign of character and strength. I think they tried to win the tournament the first day, but they learned a lot that first day and applied it yesterday and today.”
