VALDOSTA, Ga. – South Carolina’s women’s golf team stands in a tie for ninth place midway through the second round at the Kinderlou Challenge, which was suspended by darkness late Monday afternoon. The Gamecocks shot 304 (+12) in the first round and were at 9-over par in their second round when play was halted at the par-73 Kinderlou Forest Golf Club.

Sophomore Katie Burnett led the way in the first round with a 2-over-par 75. After a tough bogey-double bogey start, Burnett settled down and was 1-under over her final 16 holes, including three birdies. She stands at 1-over through 12 holes in her second round and is tied for 17th place.

Gamecock senior Corrine Carr shot a 4-over 77 in the first round, highlighted by birdies at Nos. 3 and 5 en route to a tie for 41st place through 18 holes. But at even par through 15 holes in her second round, Carr has moved up to a tie for 24th place with three holes left to play.

Senior Benedicte Toumpsin and freshman Amanda Strang both posted scores of 76 (+3) in the first round – Toumpsin with a 15-par, three-bogey effort, Strang with a pair of birdies along with three bogeys and a double-bogey – and were tied for 31st place. However, the two have struggled through their second round as Toumpsin is 8-over with three holes to play and Strang is 6-over with six holes left. Senior Taylor Barrett fought her way to an opening 86 (+13) but has rebounded with a strong second round as she stands 2-over par through 12 holes.

Tulane currently leads after posting a 1-over 293 in the first round; the Green Wave is 2-over par so far in their second round with a five-shot lead over Tennessee. Ohio State is currently third at 10-over-par. Defending SEC Champion Marta Silva Zamora is in a three-way tie with Chattanooga’s Emma de Groot and Vanderbilt’s Marina Alex for the tournament lead at 1-under; Alex held the first-round lead after an opening 71.

The second round will conclude early Tuesday morning with the final round set to get underway as soon as all the scores are posted. Live results are available through
