The Red Raiders are just three strokes away from the lead to enter Tuesday’s final round at the Cherokee Country Club in Knoxville, as Tech has a three-way tie with Miami and Augusta in third, following leaders of the first day BYU and the host volunteers.
Just like a week ago, head coach JoJo RobertsonThe team used the consistency of many of its veterans in training and then a strong performance from one of their newcomers. On Monday, this strong display came in its first year Chelsea Roma, who shot a pair of 1s over 72 rounds to end the day with a tie in the 16th overall. Romas combined to shoot just 6 players in the five par-5 locations on the field, which was tied with the lowest combined score on the field.
Amy TaylorMeanwhile, he is vying for medal honors as well as the team title, as the senior signed an initial round of 2 minors before finishing even in the afternoon session. He has the only possession of fifth place in the individual classification, four times ahead of first-day leader Kerstin Fotu of BYU.
Anna Dong makes two strokes behind Taylor in a playoff for seventh place after an opening round of 1 under and a card of 1. Dong ranked 10 birds between the two rounds, which ranked third among the 90 players. He drained four of those birds during his last nine holes in the second round, taking advantage of two par-5 positions while doing a couple of challenges after strong approaches to holes 12 and 14 par-3.
Gala Dumez i Chiara Horder completed the technique lineup as Dumez had 6 points between the two rounds, while Horder had 11 points on the day. Horder was previously Tech leader just a week ago with a fifth-place finish at Denton’s Sam Golden Invitational.
The Red Raiders will pair with BYU and Tennessee on Tuesday, when the final round will end with a shotgun at 8:00 CT. Live scores will be available throughout the round at www.Golfstat.com.
