Ohio State records a team score of 304 during lone round of competition

COLUMBUS, Ohio After waiting through two days of rain delays, the Ohio State women’s golf team played the first and final round of the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic Sunday and tied for fourth place with a team score of 304 (+16) on the par 72, 6,335-yard University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga.

Before play even began, the 37th edition of the tournament was already one for the record books. With strong thunderstorms whipping through the south, the first two rounds of competition were cancelled, a first in tournament history.

After one round of play, Auburn won the tournament at 299 (+11) while Kathleen Ekey of Alabama took medalist honors.

Leading for the Buckeyes, ranked 28th in the most recent Golfweek/Sagarin standings, for the fourth-consecutive tournament was In Hong Lim. The sophomore from Melbourne, Australia, made par on 14 holes and two birdies en route to a round 72 (E) and a career-best tie for third.

Two OSU golfers tied for 30th in senior co-captain Gemma Webster and freshman Vicky Villanueva. The duo notched one birdie a piece to finish the round with scores of 77.

On stroke back from the pair was junior co-captain Emma Jandel, who shot a 78 to tie for 39th.

Rounding out the Buckeye lineup was freshman Nara Shin who recorded a round of 83 to finish in a tie for 79th.

In her first competition of the season, senior Jennifer Cassidy concluded the tournament with a score of 80 to tie for 60th while competing as an individual.

The Buckeyes will return to action next weekend when they travel to Greensboro, N.C., for the Bryan National Collegiate, April 3-5.
