Tigers in Seventh At Liz Murphey Collegiate

ATHENS, Ga. – The LSU women’s golf team, currently ranked No. 1 in the Golfweek/Sagarin ratings, is currently in seventh place at the 48th annual Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic after the second round. The Tigers shot a 7-over 295 and are just six strokes out of second place with one round to go on Sunday. Sophomore Ingrid Lindblad moved up two spots into a tie for second with a 2-under 70 on Saturday. Her two-round total is a 3-under 141.

“We didn’t play our best today,” said LSU women’s golf head coach Garrett Runion. “We did a lot of good things but struggled on the green and couldn’t get any birdie putts to fall. Hopefully it was a bit of a wake-up call for us.”

Lindblad, a 2021 ANNIKA Award candidate, shot even on the front nine and 2-under on the back nine to lead the Tigers. Senior Kendall Griffin posted a 2-over 74 for the second-best score of the day, followed by junior transfer Jessica Bailey at 3-over 75. Sophomore Latanna Stone shot 4-over 76 for the fourth team score while freshman Carla Tejedo Mulet shot 5-over 77.

“The good news is we have one more day to make up for it and are going to give it all we have to end the Fall semester on a high note.”

LSU will tee off at 8:29 a.m. CT from Hole No. 10 for the final round on Sunday in the following order, paired with Alabama and Arkansas: 8:29 – Bailey; 8:40 – Tejedo Mulet; 8:51 – Griffin; 9:02 – Stone and 9:13 – Lindblad. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
