New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-04-07 23:00:00 –
The fourth-placed LSU Women’s Golf Team won the LSU Tiger Golf Classic on Wednesday with a 54-hole score of 12 under 852 at the University Club Golf Course.
Second-year Ingrid Lindblood won the college tournament title for the second consecutive year this season and the fourth crown in his college career. Lindblood finished the tournament with 5 under par 211.
Olemis and Vanderbild are tied for second place, 22 strokes behind the Tigers.
“We said we played this course 100 times earlier that week, and we know what a good score is,” said LSU coach Garrett Runion. “It was solid and fast. Our goal was to get out on Tuesday, 36 holes and get better in the second round than in the first round. It’s windy and fast. I knew that many teams would get tired here.
“I spent a long day on 36 holes. If I could finish hard and do the first round and actually pick it up in the second round, I would get a lot of ground and give a little cushion to get into the final round. You can, and that’s what happened in the end. “
After shooting 1 over 289 in the opening round on Tuesday, the Tigers are back with 10 under 278 in a play 5, count 4 team format. LSU was 3 under 285 as the wind began to intensify during the round following Wednesday.
The LSU victory is Tigers’ 10th time to win the LSU Tiger Golf Classic, and Lindblood’s victory makes her the 10th LSU player to win the tournament. The LSU 852 is the lowest 54 teams since the 2011 course refurbishment at U-Club, previously held in Florida and South Carolina, and scored 857 points in the 2016 NCAA Regional.
“The round went up and down a bit,” said Lindblood. “It started with OK, I just hit it on the fairway and hit the green, two putts. A kind of solid. Then I hit the water with number 6, so I just missed the 3 footer of the par. So I was a little upset. I had a 7th birdie, a 7ft birdie and a 9th long putt. It was amazing. Then I just continued. I went to the 11th green and about 13ft. I made it. It’s solid on the way. There were a lot of two putts for the par. “
LSU’s Alden Wallace shot 1 under 215 for the tournament, winning four birdies and nine pars throughout the third round. Wallace finished in 4th place overall with a two-way tie.
Ratanna Stone was the third Tiger Scorer to shoot another 216. Stone shot 2 birdies and 14 pars in the round, finishing in 6th place with a 4-way tie. Carla Tejedo Mulet placed the T16 in the tournament, with +3219 carding 2 birdies and 12 pars in the round.
Presley Baggett and Kiana Oshiro finished the tournament T20 with a score of +5221. Baggett scored 3 birdies and 13 pars, and Oshiro shot 3 birdies and 12 pars in Round 3.
Other LSU players included + 9 225 Kendal Griffin, 24 Over 240 Jessica Bailey, and + 27243 Mary Francis Shobin.
