11th Place After Day One
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – After rising back into the top spot of the NCAA Division II women’s golf rankings, No. 1 Florida Tech took a step back on day one of the Barry Women’s Invitational.
From top to bottom, the Panther lineup struggled en route to a collective 37-over-par 613 through two rounds, good enough for 11th place.
Expected to contend week in and week out, Felicia Leftinger and Johanna Larsson are off to relatively slow starts following a four-over-par 148 and a nine-over-par 153. The two will need significant turnarounds in order to catch current leader Annie Dulman of Rollins, who fired a blistering five-under 139 on day one.
Just two strokes back of Leftinger, Guro Rambjoer carded a six-over-par 150, placing her in a tie for 20th overall.
The highlight of the day belonged to Sarah Thomas, who sunk an incredible hole-in-one at Shula’s Golf Club Monday. However, Thomas went on to finish the second round in a tie for 66th following her 18-over-par 162.
FIT tees off final round action at the Barry Women’s Invitational at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.
