Clemson Sixth After Round One of Tulane Classic

New Orleans, La. – Annabelle Pancake, Katherine Schuster and Callista Rice all rank in the top 25 after the first round, leading Clemson to a sixth-place standing out of 17 teams after 18 holes at the Tulane Collegiate at English Turn Golf Club in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 93 competitors played in difficult conditions.  Only one player shot under par for the round, Marine Griffault of Texas State, and the scoring average was 10 over par 82. 

No team broke 300 for a team score and only North Texas (+12) was better than 20 over par as a team. Clemson stands in sixth place at 29-over par score of 317, but the Tigers are just five shots out of fourth place.

“It was a pretty challenging day today with temps in the 40s and a steady 15-20 mph wind,” said head coach Kelley Hester. “We played better on the back as we adjusted and will look to improve tomorrow.”

Pancake led Clemson with a five-over-par 77 on the 6,178-yard course.  The sophomore from Indiana played the par three holes in one-under-par, tied for first in the field.  She had three birdies on the day, tied for seventh best in the field.   She stands in a tie for 11th place in the race for medalist honors. 

Freshman Katherine Schuster had an opening round 78 and stands in a tie for 17th after the first round.  The native of Outer Banks, NC had four birdies to tie for third best in the field and her two-under-par net on par five holes tied for first in the field. She had the best finish of the first round among Clemson players, as she played the last eight holes in even par.

Super Senior Callista Rice had a 79 in the first round and stands in a tie for 23rd after round one.   Rice played the last six holes in just one over par.  

Melana Barrientos, Clemson’s leader in stroke average in the fall, had an opening round 83, and Savannah Grewal had an 85.
