The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team got off to a tough start at the 3M Jaguar Intercollegiate. The Mocs shot a season-high 325 at Forest Hills Golf Course in the event’s opening 18.
Senior Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) is low for her squad. She’s tied for eighth at four-over par 76. She’s three shots off the pace set by Samantha Postillion (Illinois) and Lacey Fears (Mercer) at plus one.
Britt bogeyed four of her first eight holes before a birdie four on the par five ninth. She registered two more birdies on the way in to end up at four over. She was joined on the counting cards by the trio of Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada), Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) and Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) with each carding an 83.
It was a tough day overall for the 75-player field. The average score was 81.24 individually and a shade over 320 for the teams. No. 14 Vanderbilt is the early leader shooting 299. East Tennessee State is second at 309, while Illinois’ 311 put it in third.
The second round is slated to begin at 8:30 a.m., as a shotgun start. Chattanooga, Purdue and Lamar are paired together starting on holes 12-15.
