PINEHURST, N.C. – Led by sophomore Jemima Gregson’s final round 73, the Georgia State women’s golf team shot a third-straight round of 304 to finish in 16th place at the Pinehurst Challenge on Tuesday.
Gregson made a pair of birdies and an eagle on the par 5 second hole to finish the 54-hole event tied for 37th at 9-over par.
“We saw some better things today, but again made too many big numbers which are hard to overcome in college golf,” head coach Cathy Mant said. “We have played a lot of tournaments in the last few weeks, but now we have some time before the last event of the fall. Hopefully we can use that time to continue to get better and finish the first half of the year on a high note.”
Freshman Harmanprit Kaur shot a final round 3-over 75 to finish tied for 44th at 11-over par. Like Gregson, Kaur eagled the par 5 second hole, her second eagle of the tournament. Senior Jooeun Bae added a 4-over 76 to tie with Kaur at 11-over par.
East Carolina shot a final round 1-over 289 to finish the event at 3-under and earn a seven-stroke win. Auburn finished second at 4-over par, followed by Maryland in third at 17-over. Host College of Charleston finished fourth at 23-over, followed by Samford in fifth at 24-over.
East Carolina’s Lisa Petterrson hung on for a one-stroke victory at 8-under par, topping Auburn’s Kelli Murphy who finished at 7-under. College of Charleston’s Laura Fuenfstueck placed third at 3-under par, followed by North Florida’s Teresa Conroy in fourth at 2-under. East Carolina’s Siranon Shoomee rounded out the top five at even par.
Georgia State will conclude the fall season at the FIU Pat Bradley Classic in Sarasota, Fla., Oct. 23-25.
