Neidy leads UCO to comeback win in RCB UCO Classic

OKLAHOMA CITY (Oct. 8) – Taylor Neidy fired a 1-under-par 70 to spark a second-round rally that lifted Central Oklahoma to a runaway win in the RCB UCO Classic here Tuesday.

The Bronchos closed with a five-over-par 289 to turn a five-shot first-day deficit into a 15-stroke victory over Oklahoma Christian and Arkansas Tech in the 17-team event.  UCO finished with a 586 total after two trips around the 6,026-yard, par-71 Lincoln Park (East) Golf Course.

"We talked last night about getting off to a better start today and we did that," head coach Michael Bond said.  "We did drop some shots at the end, but I couldn’t be more proud of the way we played today, top to bottom.  They wanted to win and went out and got it done."

It was the second victory in two fall tournaments for the Bronchos, who stormed to a 23-shot triumph in the season-opening Holiday Inn & Suites Lake Elmo Invitational Sept. 15-16.

Neidy’s under-par round led the way Tuesday, but she had plenty of help as UCO’s fivesome combined for 17 birdies and an eagle on the day.  Aly Seng carded a 72, while Katie Bensch shot 73, Bethany Darrough 74 and June Tigert 76. 

Lindsey Bensch had a 73 and Tressa Brumley a 77 playing as individual medalists.

Seng ended up third in the individual race with a 145 total, while Darrough, Neidy and Tigert all tied for seventh at 148.

Neidy rebounded strong from Monday’s opening-round 78, making six birdies on the day.  The senior standout had three straight birdies during one stretch and was four-under with five holes remaining before giving three shots back with a double bogey and bogey.

Seng had three birdies on her card to help offset a double bogey on the par-5 15th hole, while Bench overcame a pair of double bogeys with a five-birdie barrage.
