OPELIKA, ALA. – South Carolina senior women’s golfer Adrienne Gautreaux fired a 2-under-par, 70 on the final day of play and had moved into a tie for 21st place when competition was halted by darkness on the fourth day of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in Opelika, Ala. The 72-hole event is being contested at the par-72, 6,215-yard Grand National Lake Course.
Lightning delayed play for three-and-a-half hours at 3:57 p.m. ET, before play was resumed at 7:30 p.m. ET. The NCAA Championship will be concluded on Saturday morning as darkness forced another stoppage in play on Friday evening.
Gautreaux got her final 18 holes off to a strong start, as she was three under par after four holes, recording a birdie on the par-four second hole and an eagle on the par-five fourth hole. Despite finding trouble on the par-three eighth hole, she made the turn at 1-under-par, 35. On the inward nine, Gautreaux recorded back-to-back birdies on the par-five 14th hole and the par-three 15th hole to finish her round at 35-35-70. That gave her a 72-hole total of 73-72-78-70-293 to pull into a tie for 21st place. California’s Sarah Huarte is leading the tournament at 11 under par with six holes remaining in her final round.
The NCAA Championship will conclude on Saturday morning. Full tournament results and live scoring of the event are available at www.golfstatlive.com.
