Women's Golf Launches into Last Tournament of the Season
HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- The Southern Miss Women's Golf team is in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. at the 40th Annual FIU Pat Bradley Invitational for their last tournament of the fall season.
The 54 holes will be played at the par 72, 6,288 yard Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. Play was originally planned for Sunday through Tuesday, but will now be condensed to 18 rounds tomorrow and 36 rounds on Monday due to weather that's moving into the area.
"We had a good day of prep and look forward to a windy test tomorrow," Coach Erika Brennan said. "It will be critical to get off to a good start and patience will be a huge asset as well."
Southern Miss will be paired with Boston College and Conference USA foe FIU during the first round. The field also includes Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia State, Jacksonville, Morehead State, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, UMKC, USF, WKU and Wyoming.
Haupt leads the team with a one-over 72.89 average. She also shot a two-under 214 at the team's last outing, the Magnolia Collegiate.
This is the fourth time Southern Miss has competed in the tournament and the first time in consecutive years. Last year the Golden Eagles finish fourth overall with a 17-over 881 and Satasuk gathered her first career top-10 finish at last year's tournament.
