LEXINGTON, Ky. - Middle Tennessee women's golfer Taryn Durham, the 2006 Sun Belt Conference Champion, came up just short today at the Kentucky Women's Open. The rising junior lost in a playoff with champion Laura Anderson and Amanda Henry.

Durham posted a 147 total after firing a round of 74 on Wednesday, but her second shot on the playoff hole landed on the back of the green and forced a difficult putt. The Glasgow, Ky., native three putted, along with Henry, to miss a chance at advancing to the next hole.

"Taryn played very consistent and did not make a lot of mistakes today," said Head Coach Rachael Short. "She was pleased with the way she performed but she just could not get a lot of putts to fall."

Blue Raider teammate Maggie McGill shot a 75 to finish with a 151 total and tie for ninth place overall out of 58 golfers.
