Clemson, S.C—Sophomore Annabelle Pancake shot a one-under-par 71 on Sunday to finish in 12th place individually at the Landfall Tradition at the Dye Course at the Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, NC. The tournament concluded the fall portion of the schedule for the Clemson women’s golf team.
Clemson finished 12th out of 18 teams as a team at the national tournament that featured four of the top 10 teams, and seven of the top 25 teams in the nation. Clemson finished with a three-day total of 889, 25-over-par.
Pancake had her best tournament of the year with a 54-hole score of 215, one-under-par on the par 72 course that measured 6,150 yards. Pancake had rounds of 72-72-71 to become one of just four players in the 96-player field to shoot par or better in all three rounds. The others to do it were Emily Mahar of Virginia Tech, Amelia Williamson of Florida State, and Kan Bunnabodee of Purdue.
Pancake shot four-under-par 32 on the back nine Sunday, her first nine of the day. She had four birdies on that nine and finished with 12 in the tournament, best among Clemson golfers. Her 12th place finish was the third best of her Clemson career, and it was her first career event shooting par or better in all three rounds.
“I am really proud of Annabelle’s performance this week,” said Head Coach Kelley Hester. “She was solid all weekend and her 12th place finish was in a very strong field. “ A big reason for Pancake’s performance was her scores on par three holes. The two-time Indiana State Amateur Champion averaged 2.83 on par three holes for the weekend, tied for second in the field.
Pancake’s 215 score was 10 shots better than any other Clemson golfer. Ivy Shepherd finished 52nd for the 54 holes with a 225 score. She had scores of 73-74-78 for a nine-over-par total. She was second on the team in birdies with eight.
Savannah Grewal was Clemson’s second best golfer on Sunday with a 75. She finished with a 228 total of the weekend, 66th place. Callista Rice was Clemson’s third best golfer for the week with a 226 score after rounds of 72-76-78. Freshman Melena Barriento, who was Clemson’s top golfer in terms of stroke average entering the tournament, shot a 230 for the weekend and finished 76th.
“I am disappointed our team didn’t finish better after a strong start on Friday (291 score, third place.) We have a good bit of time to work on things before we compete again in February.”
Clemson’s next tournament is Feb. 13-15 at the AllState Sugar Bowl Tournament in New Orleans, La.
