OXFORD, Miss. – Senior Haley Sanders fired a 1-under 71 on the second day of the Cougar Classic hosted by The College of Charleston at Yeamans Hall Monday.

Sanders rebounded from a 4-over 76 in the first round Sunday to post the 1-under 71 today. After two days of play, Sanders is tied for 42nd place. She recorded three birdies in the second round, including two on the front nine on 10 and 15 which were her first and sixth holes of the day.

“I’m very pleased with the team today,” head coach Michele Drinkard said. “We came out smoking hot. I believe we were 3-under on the front nine and really kept it going.  Our final score today was a 5-over, which was six shots better than yesterday. We still hit a lot of greens but we hit a lot more putts than yesterday and the team seemed to be a lot more relaxed.”

As a team, Ole Miss is sitting in 14th place after two days.  The Rebels finished with a 5-over in today’s second round which was six shots better than the team’s first round on Sunday.  Three Ole Miss golfers, Sanders, Taelor Rubin and Alison Hovatter posted lower rounds today than in the tournament’s first round on Sunday.

“Today was definitely better,” Sanders said. “I still hit the same number of greens I hit yesterday so my ball striking was still solid. But, I did get my putts to go in a little bit better and sooner.”  

Rubin shot a 1-over 73 while Ericka Schneider shot a 2-over 74.  Hovatter ended the day with a 3-over 75 while Abby Newton shot a 4-over 76.

The final round of the Cougar Classic will take place tomorrow. Follow all the action with live scoring at golfstat.com. Also, follow the Rebels through social media on Twitter @OleMissWGolf and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OleMissWGolf.
