Women's Golf - Thu, Sep. 7, 2017

Georgetown College women's golf swung into action Monday and Tuesday with the Lindsey Wilson Invitational at the Pines in Columbia, Ky. It was a great start for the Tigers, seeing progress from a year ago. In the 10-team field, GC was seventh – 13 strokes back from Top 5.

Sophomore Baylee Salyers finished in the Top 10 individually and shot a collegiate best round of 75 on Tuesday. She finished tied for seventh with a 154 for the two days. Salyers opened her Tiger career a year ago by shooting a pair of 84s.

"Knowing in just a season how much confidence Baylee has gained and to trim 14 strokes off from her first tournament is exciting," said GC coach Marlene Schulte. "If she keeps working like she has, big things are in store for her."

Mary Catherine Borders, six strokes better over the two days from a year ago, and Kylie Speicher, 19 strokes better, also helped to bolster the team's energy in Columbia.

"Marlene and I are so proud to see the focus everyone has had," said assistant coach Katie White. "Scores have improved from a season ago, and they are setting the tone for a great season ahead."

The Tigers are back in action Sept. 18 and 19 when they host the Mid-South Conference Fall Championships at Cherry Blossom. This tournament promises a lot of great competition and the opportunity for MSC teams to see what is in store for the spring event.

"This was a great start," Schulte said. "Even with this being such an improvement, we still recognize the areas that we could have done better. I'm very encouraged for this season and proud of the girls for working so hard through pre-season to now."
