The BYU women’s golf team finished strong again in their second tournament of the season ending the contest in fourth place.

Head coach Carrie Roberts felt that her team played confidently and rightfully so. For the first time participating in the Rose City Collegiate, the BYU women’s golf team placed three players in the top-25 of the tournament. Also, the Cougars had the best second round score out of all the teams at three-under par.

Sophomore Kendra Dalton finished the highest out of all the other Cougar players. She finished tied for second and three-under par for the entire tournament. She finished the last two rounds the strongest with three-under par in round two and three-under par in round three. Dalton impressively had 12 birdies through 54 holes of golf. She improved this week after finishing tied 15th and three-over par in the Ptarmigan Classic on Sept. 15.

Junior Brooklyn Hocker finished three-over par and tied for 12th after three rounds of golf. She struggled in the first two rounds but finished well in round three at two-under par. Senior Lea Garner was the third player to finish in the top-25. She closed the tournament tied for 18th and seven-over par. She played consistently throughout each of the three rounds but couldn’t finish under par in any of the three rounds.

The women’s golf team will continue their fall tournament play at the Aggie Invitational in Las Cruces, New Mexico next week on Oct. 5-7.
