Shepherd Ties Career Best, Leads Tigers At Schooner Fall Classic

Norman, Okla. – The No. 15 Clemson women’s golf team concluded the second day of the Schooner Fall Classic with a 281 team score, putting them into ninth place. Host team Oklahoma sits in first after 36 holes while Texas, Alabama, Illinois and Baylor round out the top-five.

Golfing out of the top position, Ivy Shepherd powered the Tigers through the second round with an impressive second day five-under par, 65 score. She kicked off her day with an eagle on the second hole before finding a birdie on the fourth hole. Shepherd had two bogeys on the day coming on the sixth and ninth holes, but would follow up on the back nine with four birdies. Shepherd scored the best score of the second round across all competition and moved up 40 spots on the individual leaderboard into a seven-way tie for 10th. 

Shepherd’s eagle on the second hole would be the only eagle of the tournament thus far. Her 65 score would tie her career best which she set at last year’s Clemson Invitational. 

After securing the low qualifier for the first tournament of the year, Alexandra Swayne shot even through the second round of action. Swayne added 12 pars on the day which moves her to 26 on the tournament, just three pars behind the individual leader Polly Mack of Alabama. 

Senior Ana Paula Valdes closely followed with a one-over par score through the second day which places her at six-over par after two rounds of action. Savannah Grewal rounded out the scoring for Clemson after shooting five-over through Saturday’s action. After shooting the second-best score in the first round, Lindsay May finished the second day in Norman six-over for a two round total of nine-over.
