Clemson, S.C.—Annabelle Pancake shot her second straight even-par 72 to lead Clemson in the second round of the Landfall Tradition at the Golf Club of Landfall in Wilmington, NC. Clemson is tied for eighth with NC State in the 18-team tournament that features four of the top 10, and seven of the top 25 teams in the nation. The 54-hole event concludes on Sunday with a shotgun start at 8:45 a.m.
Michigan holds the team lead with a 568 score. Clemson’s 36-hole score is 584. Clemson is one shot ahead of ninth-ranked Texas and six shots ahead of 18th ranked Florida State.
Pancake, a sophomore from Indiana, is one of just seven players in the 96-player field to shoot even-par-or-better each of the first two rounds. She had four birdies and four bogeys on the difficult par 72 Dye Course on Saturday. She stands in a tie for 19th place overall with a 144 total.
Ivy Shepherd had a two-over-par 74 on Saturday and is Clemson’s second best player with a 147 score through 36 holes, good enough for 30th place. Callista Rice stands in 43rd place after rounds of 72-76.
Melena Barrientos shot a 75 on Saturday, an improvement by three shots over her opening round. Savannah Grewal had a 79 and is tied for Barrientos after 36 holes at 153.
“We had trouble getting anything going early today,” said head coach Kelley Hester. “The hole locations were more difficult, but there was less wind today. We fought until the end and I am proud of the three birdies we made (as a team) on the 18th hole. We are looking for better results tomorrow. Annabelle Pancake continues to play solid golf for us.”
