LSU’s Caroline Nistrup posted two-over par through 16 holes on Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships at The Concession Golf Club and is tied for fifth after 34 holes going to the resumption of the second round at approximately 7:30 a.m.
LSU still has four counting players on the course and needs to try to get in with a couple of birdies in the final holes as it is unclear what the exact plan is for tee times on the final day when all 24 teams are supposed to play Sunday and a cut to 15 teams and the top nine individuals not on those 15 teams. That round is set for Monday afternoon on Golf Channel and will determine eight teams for match play and crown the individual champion.
The counting Lady Tigers as teams left the golf course Saturday night is at 49 over par playing holes 15-18 (although actually competing on the front nine) and 28-over for the day. Nadine Dreher is on the green at 18 (the ninth hole on the course) at 8-over, Elise Bradley is about to play the final hole at 10-over, Nistrup is 2-over through 16 with 8 and 9 to play; and Madelene Sagstrom is +8 through 15 holes with scores to be recorded on 7-9.
Tulane needed to finish just two holes and managed a 26-over 314 total for 19th place.
Silvia Garces has been Tulane’s low-round player both days with a 5-over 149. She carded a 2-over 74 for the opening round and came back with a 3-over 75 during the second round, including four birdies and an eagle on No. 3.
