CU still leads after 2nd round of LPGA Xavier Collegiate Invitational cancelled by rain
DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – Saturday's second round of the LPGA Xavier Collegiate Invitational women's golf tournament has been cancelled due to heavy rains. The final round is scheduled for an 8:15 a.m. shotgun start Sunday at LPGA International.
Michelle Koh was in second place individually and Campbell University held a six-stroke advantage on the team leader board after Friday's first round.
Koh was one of only two golfers in the 72-player field to shoot par or better on the par-72, 6084-yard LPGA International layout. Amy Anderson of North Dakota State shot two-under 70 to take the individual lead.
As a team, Campbell shot 10-over 298 while leading the field with 14 birdies. Louisiana-Monroe (304) is second, followed by host Xavier (306) and Stetson (307) in the 13-school field.
A senior from Kuantan, Malaysia, Koh produced four birdies in her round and played the par four holes at one-under-par. Campbell junior Teresa Urquizu of San Sebastian, Spain matched Koh in both categories and is tied with freshman teammate Brooke Bellomy for sixth place at two-over 74.
Bellomy, who hails from Ona, W.Va., played the par-3 holes at one-under-par, best in the field, and made three birdies.
Playing as an individual, Campbell freshman Johanne Svendsen is tied for 29th at plus-seven 79. She was even on the par-3 holes.
