Lady Flames Only Three Strokes Back At TSYS Collegiate Classic

Tuesday, February 25, 2014
COLUMBUS, Ga. –  When play begins in the final round of the TSYS Collegiate Classic hosted by Columbus State, the Lee women’s golf team will trail Lander University (S.C.) by three strokes.

The Lady Flames played 36-holes on Monday and turned in team scores of 311-319 -630 and are tied with the University of Montevallo (Ala.) for second place. Host Columbus State is fourth (660) and West Alabama rounds out the top five at 662.

Courtney Shelton will be going after medalist honors on Tuesday.
The senior started slow with a 78 but came firing back with a 1-under par 71 in the second round and her 149 is two strokes better than Lander’s Mariana Martins (77-74 – 151). Elaine Wood of Montevallo (79-74 – 153) is third, while Lee’s Bernadette Little came in with a 76-78 – 154.  Rachel Uremovich completed the first five with an 83-73 – 156.

“Courtney played well this afternoon,” stated Lee coach John Maupin. “Her 71 was a strong round. She took it upon herself to keep us in it. I expect that we will have some other players step up tomorrow. We will need a total team effort.”

The Lady Flames got a 79-84 –163 from Cori Burns. Madison Alexander followed with a 78-86 -164. Callie Kitchens rounded out the Lee scoring with an 82-89 -171.

“Today definitely could have been a lot better, especially in that second round,” stated Maupin. “I just thought that mentally we really didn’t do a good job of battling all the way to the end. We let some of our mistakes snowball and affect us longer than they should have.”

“This is something we are going to have to learn from. I’m glad that we are in the hunt, but our main goal is to play our best  and we didn’t do that today. We did some things well, but we have to be more consistent in our approach to every shot,” he concluded.
