Women's Golf Travels to South Carolina
GREENVILLE, S. C. — The LSU Lady Tigers, still struggling to put a consistent lineup together after two tournaments, goes back to action on Friday in the Lady Paladin Invitational, hosted by Furman at the Furman University Golf course (Par 27, 5,917 yards).
A total of 21 teams will take part in the event with Alabama Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, College of Charleston, Florida State, Louisville, Memphis, Ole Miss, North Carolina, UNC Greensboro, North Carolina State, South Carolina, TCU and Tulane joining LSU and host Furman.
LSU is coming off a tie for 14th in the Mercedes-Benz Classic last week in what was the first of three consecutive weekends of golf to close out the fall season. Next weekend, LSU will go to Auburn for the annual Auburn-Derby Invitational.
Baton Rouge freshman Rebecca Struthers of University High will make her collegiate debut this weekend for LSU joining juniors Devon Day and Isabel Dornellas, senior Erin Sarver and sophomore Broke Shelton in the LSU lineup.
Neither defending champion is in the field as Auburn took the team title a year ago and LSU’s Meredith Duncan, then a senior, won the first of her three collegiate titles a year ago on this course with an even par 216 for 54-holes.
The 54-hole tournament runs through Sunday.
