Women's Golf in Fourth at Suspended Payne Stewart Memorial
The Missouri State women's golf team was tied for fourth of 17 teams after Monday's (Oct. 18) first round of the 2010 MSU/Payne Stewart Memorial in Springfield, Mo. The Bears shot 313 in the morning round, but the afternoon round was suspended due to darkness with several teams having completed their rounds, but most players with a hole or two remaining. The second round will be completed at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, followed immediately by the final round.
Junior Catherine Dolan led the way for the Bears, shooting a two-over-par 74 for fourth place after 18 holes. Junior Kelsey Welber and freshman Rikke Falsner were tied for 18th after posting 78's, while junior Emily Potts had 83 and sophomore Hermine Greyling 85. Kelly Amundrud of Bradley took the first-round lead with a 71 at the 6100-yard Highland Springs Country Club. Three Bears competed as individuals, so were not eligible in the medalist race. Junior Emily Matthews carded 79, while sophomores Emma Clegg and Amy Bowen shot 86 and 90, respectively.
Texas-El Paso grabbed the early team lead with 304, with Arkansas-Little Rock and Oral Roberts tied for second at 307. The Bears were tied for fourth with Central Arkansas and Bradley. Next came Southern Illinois (320), UMKC (321), Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (322), Drury (325), UNI (332), Indianapolis (335), Creighton (336), South Dakota State (341), Drake (343), Indiana State (345) and South Dakota (363).
