Monday September 30, 2013Women's Golf Seeks Improvement After Tough Day One of Windy City

Highland Park, Ill.

The competition proved to be as strong as expected at the Windy City Collegiate Classic as the No. 5 Gators women’s golf team finished T9 after playing 36 holes today.

 

In her debut wearing orange and blue, junior Sarah Schober led the Gators on the course today, making four birdies overall and shooting a team-leading four-over (146). She placed in the top-30 individually. Following Schober, Ursa Orehek started off her sophomore campaign making three birdies in round two, but struggled in round one and finished six-over (148) on the day.

 

The rest of the Florida team finished just three strokes apart from each other: freshman Karolina Vlckova eight-over (150), redshirt sophomore Katie Mitchell nine-over (151) and junior Anna Young 10-over (152).

 

The No. 5 Gators ended day one at Northmoor Country Club T9 (594) behind five ranked teams: No. 1 USC, No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 10 Arizona, No. 12 Stanford and tied for No. 17, Georgia.

 

Florida enters the final day of the Windy City Collegiate Classic aiming to improve on the course.

 

Head Coach Emily Glaser Says: “It was a tough day for us. We made too many mistakes on a scoreable golf course. Tomorrow we need to do a better job of trusting ourselves, but we are happy to have another day left to improve.”
