KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Sophomore Abby Newton carded a 3-over 74 in final around action at the Mercedes-Benz Championship to lead the Ole Miss women's golf team to a 15th place finish on Sunday (Sept. 22). Newton was 5-over through the 36-hole tournament, which was shortened by around due to rain on Saturday.
