After week-long break from action, the Clemson women’s golf team returns to the course as they head across the border to participate alongside 17 other teams at the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. The UNC Finley, par 72 golf course will be home to the 18-team field from Oct. 11-13.
Freshman Savannah Grewal will get her first action in the top spot for the Tigers with Alexandra Swayne, Lindsay May, Ivy Shepherd and Ana Paula Valdes rounding out the lineup. The UNC tournament will be familiar territory for most of the Clemson team with May, Swayne, Valdes and Shepherd all participating in last year’s Invitational. During her freshman campaign, Shepherd led the way by powering through the final round with a four-under par score to move her to two-under par through the tournament and an 11th place finish.
Last season, Clemson finished tied for seventh among the 18-team field alongside host team North Carolina. Duke walked away with the team title after a 14-under par team score through 54 holes while Emilia Migliaccio of Wake Forest claimed the individual crown after an 11-under par performance throughout the three rounds.
The field will bring a unique opportunity to the Tigers with six other Atlantic Coast Conference teams and seven top-25 schools participating in the action, two of which are representing the ACC.
