Haggard tied for second at Bettie Lou Evans Invitational
Junior just a stroke off the paceSeptember 30, 2011 · Athletic Communications
"It was a tough one out there today," head coach Chris Adams said. "It was pretty cold, and there were some strong winds out of the north. We actually moved up a bit on the leaderboard after finishing, due to the conditions the teams behind us had to deal with."
Haggard was one-under through the first nine holes of the day, and was steady down the stretch despite bogeying three times.
"Ashley really managed the course well today," Adams said. "She has a lower ball trajectory, which really helps her with some of these difficult conditions. There were several holes today where a bogey is a good result, and finishing at just two-over is really a tribute to how well she played."
Competing in the event as an individual, Natalie Chrisopulos is tied for 19th after shooting a 16-over 88.
Middle Tennessee will continue play at the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational on Saturday at the University Club of Kentucky in Lexington. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
"There may be a few yardage adjustments tomorrow because of the conditions," Adams said. "They aren't really going to get much better, and every shot matters. So we just need to stay focused and look to make a move tomorrow."
