Haglund Finishes The Alamo Invitational At Two-Under To Match Career-Best
Oct. 29, 2013
SAN ANTONIO, Texas. (SMU) - Sophomore Jenny Haglund shot an even-par 72 to finish The Alamo Invitational in 13th at two-under, tying her career-low 54-hole tally, to lead the SMU women's golf team to an 11th-place finish in its final tournament of the fall on Tuesday at Briggs Ranch Golf Course in San Antonio.
"We didn't bring our best golf games to the course today, and we paid for that, dropping a few spots on the leaderboard today," head coach Jeanne Sutherland said. "There were a bunch of teams that were closely matched in the middle of the field this week, and after doing a great job finishing out the tournament in Austin last time out, we went the other way today. With that said, we had a really good fall, and we're not going to stay focused on today's performance very long. We'll learn from today and work hard in the offseason to get better before we get back underway in the spring."
Freshman Katie Page also carded a five-over 77, good for 58th in her second-career tournament, while classmate Lindsey McCurdy recorded a six-over 78 to finish 61st in the third tournament of her career.
Oklahoma won the tournament by eight strokes, turning in a 12-under 276 on Tuesday. LSU's Lindsay Gahm held onto the individual lead, winning the tournament by a stroke over Oklahoma's Alexandra Kaui.
The Mustangs will kick-start the spring half of their schedule Feb. 9-11, when they make their first of two trips to Orlando, Fla., to play in the UCF Challenge.
