ND Women’s Golf: Weaver leads team in first spring tournament

Kit Loughran | Monday, February 18, 2013

In their season-opening appearance, the Irish finished seventh in the Seminole Match-Up on Sunday at Southwood Golf Course in Tallahassee, Fla. The Irish concluded the tournament with a 54-hole score of 906 (+42).

The Irish ended the first round of the tournament Friday with a 12-over par 300, which put them in eighth place at the start the second round. Freshman Lindsey Weaver led the Irish with an even-par 72 to open the tournament. Right behind Weaver sophomore Ashley Armstrong shot a two-over par 74.

After a slightly-improved score of 299 (+11), the Irish women advanced to seventh place at the end of the second round. The course conditions were tough and significantly affected the team’s performance, Irish coach Susan Holt said.

“It was very windy and chilly,” Holt said. “We battled and tried to hang in there, but we gave a lot of shots back in the end of the round.”

Despite the harsh weather conditions, freshman Talia Campbell completed the second round with a par score of 72 to lead the Irish. She finished the round with three birdies, three bogeys and 12 pars, landing her the 26th spot in the tournament after two rounds with a score of 152 (+8).
