Clemson, SC – Sophomore Ivy Shepherd led the Tigers in the first round of the IJGA Collegiate Invitational in Guadalajara, Mexico to move the Tigers into a tie for seventh place. Clemson tees off the second round tomorrow beginning at 9:15 EST.
No. 25 Baylor tops all teams with a three-under par 285 team score with No. 8 Stanford sitting one stroke off the lead. No. 41 Virginia and No. 18 LSU are the only other teams to play even par or better through the first round of competition. The No. 36 Tigers sit knotted in a four-way tie for seventh place alongside No. 37 Texas A&M, No. 15 Arkansas and No. 30 Florida State after shooting a five-over par 293.
Shepherd fired a one-under par 71 in the opening day to place in her a six way tie for 11th place as an individual and five strokes off leader Ingrid Lindblad of LSU. Starting on the 10th tee, the sophomore went on to shoot one-under on her first nine holes with two birdies and bogey and finished her day off even on the back nine. Shepherd led the Tigers with a team-best four birdies on the afternoon, placing her in the top-10 across the field for total birdies.
Lindsay May, who played in three tournaments for Clemson in the fall season, had the second-best score for the Tigers with a one-over par 73. After playing even par through her first nine holes, May concluded her round after adding two bogeys and a birdie on her back nine, one of the bogeys coming on the 17th hole. May’s efforts are enough to keep her within the top-25 individuals.
Returning to familiar territory, Ana Paula Valdes shot a two-over par 74 on a course just three hours away from her hometown of Morelia, Mexico. Despite starting her day off even through the front nine, two late bogeys on her 15th and 17th holes made the difference as she finished 31st among the field. Gracyn Burgess wrapped up the Clemson scoring with a three-over 75 while Callista Rice followed with a four-over first round.
