EVANSVILLE, Ind. --- The Tennessee State women’s golf team placed 11th at the Charles Braun Jr. Intercollegiate. Tigers teamed for a 52-over, 340, after the tournament was cut to one day after Monday’s action was rained out.
Kalee Rhodes led the Big Blue with an 8-over, 80, which placed her in a tie for 16th. The sophomore finished five strokes behind the top medalists and two strokes out of a top-10 finish.
Rhodes carded seven pars and two birdies on the day, the first coming on the par-4, 7th. Rhodes hit driver off the tee box to 50 yards of the green. Her approach shot fell short of the green, but was able to drain the 20 foot putt. On the par-3, 13th, Rhodes hit a wind aided 9-iron from 112 yards out to 15 feet of the pin, setting up her second birdie of the day.
Haleigh Riley, Morgan Rood and Savannah Szozda each scored for the Tigers, just ahead of Trinidy Pate. Rood used a pitching wedge to get within 14 feet from the hole on No. 13. The senior made the putt for her lone birdie of the day.
Up Next: The Tigers will host the Town & Country TSU Invitational on Oct. 28-29. at McCabe Golf Course
