DENTON, Texas – Kyndall Morgan turned in the best round by an Aggie at the DBU Women’s Classic after carding a 72 in the final round on Tuesday; the Cameron women’s golf team placed sixth as a team.
The senior Morgan entered Tuesday’s final 18 holes with CU’s best score, shooting a 76 in the first round and a 75 in the second. Paired with the 72 in the final round, her 223 tournament scored earned her a tie for 11th place individually.
Morgan carded an even score on the par-3 holes and her par-5 scoring was at two under. Her 36 pars were tops on the Aggie squad, while she added six birdies through the 54-hole tournament.
As a team, the Aggies, who were battling a slight mist throughout the round, scored a 310 in the final round, which dropped them from fifth to sixth with a tournament total of 930, which was 90 strokes back of the DBU, who ran away with the classic title.
Sophomore Gerdur Ragnarsdottir finished 10 strokes back of her teammate, shooting a 78 in the final round to giving her a tie for 25th place. Freshman Maelle Dreyer wrapped up her first collegiate tournament with a 237 total score, while Iona Roska turned in a 239 for the 54-hole event. CU’s other freshman Emma Englefield had her best round on Tuesday, shooting a 79, bringing her tournament total to 242.
Additionally, Ragnarsdottir led CU with eight birdies at the DBU Classic, followed by Morgan and Dreyer with six each. Cameron’s lone individual, Ellie Fellers, shot an 86 in the final round and finished with a 250 for the tournament.
The Lady Patriots were in control from the start, winning the tournament by 67 strokes thanks to a trio of sub-290 scores. UT Tyler claimed second place with a 907, while West Texas A&M scored a 911 to finish in third. Coming in just ahead of CU were UAFS (923) and Midwestern State (929).
DBU’s Olivia Mitchell claimed the top individual honor, shooting a 204 for the event, followed by teammates Hanna Harrison with a 209 and Julia Garcia with a 213; the host team had five players finish in the top-10.
