- The Auburn women's golf team completed the first round of the NCAA Athens Regional on Monday and are tied for 13th place after 18 holes at the University of Georgia Golf Course.
The Trojans, who battled winds with the final group of schools finishing late today, combined for a 7-over 295, tied with Pac-12 rivals California and Washington, the teams 8 back of upstart Pepperdine and five behind conference foe Stanford.
From each 2017 NCAA Regional, the lowest scoring six teams and the lowest scoring three individuals not on those teams will advance to the NCAA Championship, May 19-24, hosted by Northern Illinois University at Rich Harvest Farms, in Sugar Grove, Illinois. There are 18 teams in the field. "When you have teammates that are making birdies and going under par, it drives you to be even better".
Starting the day on the back nine, Curtis birdied three of her first five holes to gain possession of the lead. Her 4.25 par-5 scoring average is tied for first at the tournament.
Hatch (Mukilteo, WA/Kamiak) was in complete control of his round carding a bogey-free round while recording three birdies and one eagle.
In each of their last four tournaments, the Tech women have finished higher than their position after the first round, including a leap from last place to third at the Big 12 tournament.
As expected, the Rawls Course offered a tough challenge the Racers. Hocker fired a 74 to tie for 16th place.
"I started off pretty strong and got under right away so it took some pressure off for the rest of the round because I didn't have to work to get things back", Curtis said. "We all did a great job staying in patient, which is hard to do on a day like this".
"I am pleased with the team's overall performance today", said GNAC Coach of the Year Luke Bennett. Maggie Beth Byers carded a 1-over 73 and is tied for 16th place, while Dylan Kim is tied for 30th at 3-over 75. The Seminoles, Gators and Buckeyes are scheduled to tee of beginning at 9:09 a.m. from the first tee. She finished in a tie for 15 in the individual standings in the 2016 NCAA Shoal Creek Regional Championship. She earned streaks of seven consecutive holes scored at par or better on the front nine and six holes scored at par or better on the back nine.
