IU Women's Golf Opens Play in Hoosier Fall Invitational
Oct. 19, 2013
GREENWOOD, Ind. - Led by junior Elizabeth Tong, who made four birdies on the day, the Indiana women's golf team wrapped by day one at the Hoosier Fall Invitational at the Hickory Stick Golf Club on Saturday. The Hoosiers are currently in 13th place in the tournament with one round completed and round two stopped due to darkness before everyone could finish.
Round two will be completed at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow with the third and final round set to begin in a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m.
Tong, who was one of two Hoosiers to complete her second round, rebounded from an opening 5-over 76 on the par-71 course, to shoot a 1-over 72 in the second round. Tong is currently tied for 21st place on the individual leaderboard. Tong made two birdies in her last three holes to finish the second round.
UC Davis leads the tournament with a 14-over score and Purdue and Illinois are tied for second-place at 16-over. The Hoosiers find themselves in 13th at 42-over for the tournament.
Freshman Theresa-Ann Jedra also had a solid day for the Hoosiers as she carded a 5-over 76 in the first round and finished her last two holes of the second round with birdies. She is currently 11-over and tied for 50th in the tournament.
"Today it was important to be mentally tough," IU head coach Clint Wallman said. "We faced some challenging course conditions with rain and cold weather. I was very proud of the way Elizabeth Tong and Thersea-Ann Jedra competed and came back to finish strong. They were mentally tough and converted on birdies late in their rounds. I look forward to coming back and improving and trying to work our way up the leaderboard in the final round."
