Franklin, Tenn.

Evan Jensen

University of Florida women’s golf team finished in 13th place at the 2011 Mason Rudolph Fall Preview. The squad shot a final round 306 (+18) and had a tournament total of 905 (+41). The Gators were led by senior Evan Jensen (Belleair, Fla.) on the last day of tournament who shot a three-over 75 to give her a final score of 228 (+12).

 

“Evan played well.” Head coach Jan Dowling stated. “She wasn’t striking the ball well but she figured out a way to put together a good score. She really worked hard today.”

 

The 16th ranked Gators, who entered the final round in 11th place, have found some room for improvement in their games throughout the weekend.

 

“We could have played better,” Dowling said. “We struggled with our short game today. We need to get better there and we will. It’s no secret that we will be working on our short games the next few weeks.”

 

The Legends Club, which will host the 2012 NCAA Championships next May, was the host of this weekend’s Fall Preview.

 

“The biggest thing we can take from this tournament is our knowledge of this course,” explained Dowling. “We had a chance to get to know this course and it should pay off down the road.”

 

Freshman Camilla Hedberg (Sitges, Spain) finished tied for 22nd with a tournament total of 222 (+6) while junior Mia Piccio (Bacolod City, Philippines) carded a tournament total of 225 (+9).

 

Junior Isabelle Lendl (Goshen, Conn.) finished the tournament at 15-over and senior Andrea Watts (Bradenton, Fla.) ended at 22-over.

 

Dowling pointed out that the team isn’t far from becoming a team that consistently performs at the highest level.

 

“It’s encouraging to know that we aren’t that far off. It’s just a simple change of mentality. We need to know that we can score lower rather than hope we can score lower.”

 

UCLA, the No. 1 ranked team according to Golf World/NGCA preseason women’s coaches’ poll, took home their first tournament win of the season, beating out second-place Alabama by six strokes. Lindy Duncan from Duke University captured the individual title with a tournament score of 212 (-4).

 

The Gators will be in competition next at the SEC/Pac-12 Challenge in Knoxville, Tenn., October 21-23. University of Tennessee will host the three-day tournament at Holston Hills Country Club.
