Women's Golf Heads to Furman for Lady Paladin Invitational

GREENVILLE, S.C. — There was little time to rest for the LSU Lady Tigers golf team as they return to action Friday in the Furman Lady Paladin Invitational at the Furman University Golf Course.

The Lady Tigers competed in Knoxville at Tennessee’s Mercedes-Benz Women’s Championships, Sunday through Tuesday, where LSU finished in a tie for 10th place. The team flew home Tuesday night to Baton Rouge, attended classes on Wednesday and then Wednesday evening headed to Furman for a Thursday practice round and the start of the tournament on Friday.

The Lady Tigers will go with four of the players who played in Knoxville – Brooke Shelton, Vicky Meyer, Melissa Eaton and Alexis Rather with Devon Day rounding out the quintet for LSU’s final women ‘s event of the fall calendar.

“We want to really finish on a good note this weekend,” said LSU Coach Karen Bahnsen. “We had our ups and downs in Knoxville and never could put anything together. We are determined to grind away and get back to the scores we shot in the first two tournaments.”

Joining LSU and Furman in the tournament are: Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, College of Charleston, Georgia, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan, Minnesota, Ole Miss, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington, TCU, Tulsa and Winthrop.
