CU wins women's event
CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Katie Legge fired a one-over par 73 to win low medalist honors and Cumberland's women pulled away with a second-day team score of 311, winning by 31 shots at the Don Bishop Invitational here Tuesday at Campbellsville Country Club.
Legge posted her fourth career victory, making a short birdie putt on No. 18, her sixth hole of the day, and a 15-footer on the par-5 seventh to go with bogeys on the par-5 third hole, the par-4 13th (her first hole of the round) and the par-4 11th. She registered 13 pars on the day and won by eight shots over teammate A.C. Agee.
Agee was even on her first seven holes after starting on No. 12, also making a bogey on No. 13 and chipping in from behind the green on the par-4 16th. She struggled a bit on the front side, bogeying four of the first five holes before righting the ship with four straight pars. She finished with two bogeys for her second straight 78 and a second-place finish overall.
Freshman Quincy Hogan rebounded with a solid round on Tuesday after a less-than-stellar opening score. The Carrollton, Ky., native started on No. 14 and bogeyed three of her first five holes but then birdied holes No. 1 and 3. She posted three bogeys on the front side as well and finished at six-over par 78.
Junior Lindsey Taylor failed to make a birdie in her round but avoided big numbers, registering eight pars and 10 bogeys on her way to an 82. Junior Kayla Smith started with a double bogey on the 13th hole and had another double on the par-5 1st hole. She also did not have a birdie but helped the Bulldogs stay the course by avoiding any other big numbers, shooting 83.
In their first tournament as full members of the Mid-South Conference, Cumberland won going away in the team portion of the event, leading by 19 shots heading into Tuesday and adding to the advantage throughout the day, eventually winning by 31 over the University of the Cumberlands.
Cumberland will next play in the Trevecca Nationwide Invitational on Oct. 8-9 at Old Hickory Country Club in OId Hickory.
Garrett shoots career-best 66, Bulldogs place third
CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Cumberland’s Austin Garrett carded a career-best six-under par 66, the second lowest score of the day, and the Bulldogs posted a team total of 285, the best team score on Tuesday, and CU finished third as a team on the second day of the Don Bishop Invitational at Campbellsville Country Club.
Garrett recorded seven birdies and just one bogey in his round of 66, bogeying hole No. 5 (after starting on the third hole). He birdied 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17 and No. 1, registering the most birdies for the day and the most for the tournament (10). The Smithville, Tenn., native tied for eighth overall in the tournament and could have finished second had it not been for his 11 on the par-5 seventh hole on Monday.
Freshman Peyton Broyles followed with 73 with a two-under par 70, posting four birdies, four bogeys and an eagle on the par-5 12th hole. He also birdied the first, third, 14th and 16th holes but finished with a bogey on the par-3 second, placing seventh overall in the tournament.
The club’s other freshman, Ryan Botts, shot 73 on Monday as well and came back with a one-under par 71, carding four birdies, one bogey and one double bogey. He began his round with four straight pars (No. 2 was his first hole) before the double bogey on the par-3 sixth hole. He followed that with a birdie on seven and birdied Nos. 12 and 15 before a bogey on 18 and a birdie on the first to end the round and tie for eighth along with Garrett.
Junior Jeremy Goodman shot a second-round 78 that included 14 pars but also a triple bogey eight on the 12th hole. He tied for 48th overall.
Senior Zach Brewer rode the roller coaster most of the day, beginning his round on the first hole with a birdie but following that with a double bogey and then four straight bogeys. He birdied Nos. 7 and 8 and finally found par on the ninth. He then hit two balls out-of-bounds on the par-5 12th and made a nine and finished with three bogeys in his last six holes. Brewer tied for 51st after shooting 82.
Cumberland is scheduled to play at the Battle of Blackhorn in South Bend, Ind., on Sept. 24-25.
