BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The No. 4 LSU women’s golf team is in the lead after round two of the Southeastern Conference Women’s Golf Championship after shooting a 12-under 276, the second lowest round in school history, Thursday at the Greystone Golf and Country Club Legacy Course layout.
South Carolina is in second shooting a 7-under 281 and Auburn is in third with a 10-under 278 for the round.
“Very proud of the ladies these past two days,” said head coach Garrett Runion. “To come out and break the SEC and LSU single round record is very impressive but I am more impressed with how they backed that up today with the second lowest round in LSU history. Our round today showed how consistent and deep we can be we with four rounds of 69 and our fifth round of 70. It was a fun day and look forward to what we have been doing, focusing on us and trying to improve tomorrow.”
