Rebels in Second Heading into Final Round in Kiawah
Oct. 23, 2017

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – The Ole Miss women’s golf team fell to second place at the Palmetto Intercollegiate after treacherous course conditions made for a difficult conclusion second round.

The Rebels topped the leaderboard going into Monday at Turtle Point Golf Course after an outstanding 2-over par (290) Round 1. Weather conditions and forecasts prompted a shotgun start for Round 2, placing head coach Kory Henkes’ group near the end of the course, on holes 16-18 to start the day and finishing up on holes 14-16, Turtle Point’s three ocean holes.

“The conditions were really tough today,” Henkes said. “We finished on the holes along the ocean that had winds gusting up to 30 mph with intermittent heavy rain.”

As severe storm clouds approached off the Atlantic, the ocean holes were no walk on the beach. Ole Miss combined to shoot 10-over on holes 14-16 and turned in a 301 (+13) to slip to second. Meanwhile, Kennesaw State matched the 290 shot by the Rebels in Round to take a one-stroke lead at 300-290--590 (+14). However, with sun in the forecast, Ole Miss remains confident going into the final day.

“It was a grind today, but we definitely didn’t have our A-game as a whole,” Henkes said. “Everyone is in good spirits and looking forward to the challenge in front of us tomorrow.”

Lim Tied for Lead
Diane Lim 
remained atop the individual leaderboard, but she now has company. After a career-best 4-under (68) in Round 1, the junior went 2-over (74) in Round 2 to remain in first. She’s joined by Marshall sophomore Shelby Brauckmuller. Brauckmuller, the reigning Conference USA Freshman of the Year, shot 2-under on Monday to tie Lim at 142 through 36 holes.

Lim opened her day with a bogey but climbed back to even with a birdie on the fourth hole. However, the NAIA All-American carded a double-bogey on the following hole. It was just her first double-bogey as a Rebel, breaking a 133-hole streak. The Suwanee, Georgia native totaled three birdies on the day and has eight so far on the tournament.


 

 

Rebel Round-Up
Lim shot the best round of the day for Ole Miss, followed by sophomore Pi-Lillebi Hermansson, who remained in the top 20 after replicating her Round 1 score a 3-over (75). The Djursholm, Sweden native recorded the second eagle of the tournament for Ole Miss, doing so on No. 5, the same hole Julia Johnson eagled on Sunday.

After a 2-under first round, Johnson was runner-up to Lim going into the day. The freshman from St. Gabriel, Louisiana, was holding strong in the top five, but she picked up a double-bogey on her final hole, the 16th, to close the second round in a tie for seventh at 70-77--147 (+3).

Conner Beth Ball and Kie Purdom supplied the final two counting scores for Ole Miss, each at 4-over (76).

Ball’s run on the ocean holes was as adventurous as anyone’s. The freshman from Madison, Mississippi, doubled 14, rebounded with a birdie on 15 and bogeyed 16. Ball was on pace to match Lim at 2-over but closed out at 4-over (76), one stroke better than her first round.

Purdom improved her score by two strokes from Round 1 to Round 2. She, too, was on pace for a solid 2-over day until she encountered the ocean holes. Like Ball, she doubled 14 and bogeyed 16, but the junior from Lexington, Kentucky, ended her day with a welcomed birdie on the 17th hole.

Ole Miss will tee off from the first three holes and will be paired with Kennesaw State and Marshall for the final round. Lim and Johnson will start on the first, Hermansson and Ball on the second and Purdom on the third. The field will tee off in a shotgun start at 8 a.m. CT.
