May 10, 2003

The University of South Carolina women’s golf team advanced to the 2003 NCAA Championships Saturday with a seventh-place finish in the NCAA East Regionals held over the weekend at the Salem Glen Country Club in Clemmons, North Carolina. The Gamecocks recorded a 10-over-par 294 in Saturday’s final round to post a three-day-score of 884 and advance to the NCAA Championships for the third consecutive year and seventh time in the last 11 years.

Senior All American Kristy McPherson shot a 70 to record her third par-or-better round over the three days and finished second to Furman’s Brandi Jackson by four strokes, 209 to 205. The one-under-par 70 also marked the 14th par-or-better round of golf in 27 outings for the the two-time SEC champion.

Defending champion Duke shot a 857 over the three days to win its third consecutive East Regional title and advance to the Championship round. Of the eight teams who earned the right to continue play, four hail from the SEC (Vanderbilt, Georgia, Auburn and USC) with three from the ACC (Duke, North Carolina and Florida State).

Adrienne Gautreaux shot a two-over 73 on Saturday to finish in a tie for 40nd place (+12, 225). Coming off her career-low round of 70 on Friday, Marci Robinson shot a 76 on the final day to post a three-day total of 227 and tie for 54th place. Kacy Thompson secured a tie for 64th place as the senior carded a 75 on Saturday for a 229 (+16) total. Tiffany Catafygiotu rebounded from a bad day on Friday with a 76 today and finished with a three-day total of 233 (+20), good for a 79th place tie.

South Carolina will return home for the next week to prepare for the NCAA Championships beginning on Tuesday, May 20th to be held in West Lafayette, Indiana, through Friday, May 23rd.
