MEDINAH, Ill. – Kennesaw State women’s golf had its best round on the final day of the Illini Women’s Invitational at the Medinah Country Club on Course No. 2. The Owls finished in 13th place and were eight over-par on the day.
“This isn’t the result we anticipated, but in a field this deep and talented you have to be on your game and we didn’t have a fourth score this week. I’m pleased with some of the individual scores we had, but overall we have to be better to earn more quality wins,” said Head Coach Rhyll Brinsmead.
KSU shot an 891 over 54 holes (297+298+296=891) and was 27 shots over-par for the tournament. KSU finished ahead of Notre Dame and Wisconsin. Kent State edged Ole Miss by one stroke to win with an 853 total score and two under-par. The course is 6159 yards and a par 72.
Bella Kil shot one under-par, a 71, to lead KSU’s final day scoring. She finished tied for 56th with a 225 (73+81+71=225) and was +9. Tai Anudit was the low Owl scorer with her 220. After rounds of 69 and 73 Monday, Anudit carded a 78 to end in a tie for 34th and was +4.
