Chapel Hill, N.C. – The Clemson women’s golf team stayed put in 12th place after posting a 288 team score to remain seven-over par through the first two rounds at the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational. The Tigers will tee off the final round of competition tomorrow at 9:15 a.m. on the UNC Finley course in Chapel Hill.
Savannah Grewal and Alexandra Swayne both posted one-under par scores in the second round to help the team remain even on the day. Grewal, who is playing in the top spot this weekend, had a team-best five birdies on the afternoon. Similarly, Swayne drained four birdies on the afternoon as she made the turn at three-under par.
Lindsay May and Ivy Shepherd would finish the day one-over par to wrap up the scoring for round two. Golfing out of the fifth position, Ana Paula Valdes would fire a 75 but her score would not count towards the team score.
The tournament field saw a major shift in rankings with Kentucky firing 10-under par as a team in the second round to make the leap over Wake Forest in the top spot, moving their tournament total to 15-under. With Wake Forest moving into the second slot, Michigan State and Alabama sit in a tie for third place at 13-under par. However, the most impressive change through the second round was Duke’s staggering 16-under par team score on the day to force themselves into the top five with an 11-under total through 36 holes.
On the individual leaderboard, Jaravee Boonchant, Valery Plata and Aneka Seumanutafa sit in a three-way tie for first place entering tomorrow’s round. Clemson’s Shepherd remains in the top-25 with a one-under score through the first two days of competition.
