Women's Golf Set For Final Round at Stonebridge


ROME, GA – The North Georgia women’s golf team is looking to move up the standings Tuesday afternoon at the Chick-fil-A Intercollegiate Invitational after sitting in 13th place after the first round of action at the Stonebridge Golf Club.

The Lady Saints fired a 155-over-par 443 Monday afternoon to sit 13th in the field of 13 teams, as Shorter College leads the event with a 26-over-par 314, followed by Lindsey Wilson College in second place with 318, and West Georgia in third place with 322.

North Georgia was led by Charley Whitmire who shot 44 on the front nine and 46 on the back nine to record a 90 and sit in a tie for 47th place overall at the midway point. Brittany Kemp is in 60th place after shooting a 101, while Courtney Hall and Amy Lewis are in 71st and 72nd places, recording rounds of 123 and 129 respectively.

Cool windy conditions made scoring tough as the leaders were unable to break even par. Greta Lange of Shorter College and Callie Bennett of Berry College lead the field at two-over par at the midway point of the tournament, firing 74’s to sit atop the leaderboard of 72 players.

The final round of the 36-hole Chick-fil-A Intercollegiate Invitational got underway Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m.
