UTC Women Travel To Mercedes-Benz Golf Championship

Thursday, September 19, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team has a quick turnaround this week teeing off Friday in Knoxville at the Mercedes-Benz Women’s Championship. The 54-hole event is a three-day affair at Cherokee Country Club with 18 holes per day Friday through Sunday.

Colette Murray noted how quickly the fall season will go for her Mocs.

“It’s going to be a very fast fall with five tournaments in as many, if not less, weeks,” Murray stated. “I was really pleased with Jordan (Britt) and Emily’s (McLennan) starts. We need to get better at the four and five spots in the lineup to get to where this team is capable of going.”

All six team members are scheduled to play in the event. Britt (Chattanooga) and McLennan (Queensland, Australia) are coming off top 10 finishes earlier in the week at the Cardinal Cup just outside Louisville, Ky. Britt finished ninth, while McLennan tied for 10th.
