Like and Follow Golf Oklahoma

GREENVILLE, S.C. – The University of Tulsa’s Lorena Tseng made a push to win medalist honors at the Lady Paladin Invitational with a final round of 4-under par 68, but the freshman fell two shots short and finished in second place on Sunday afternoon at the par-72 Furman University Golf Course.

As a team, the Hurricane carded a final round 296 for a 54-hole total of 894 to finish in 11th place. Host Furman claimed the team title with an 856 score.

Today, Tseng shot a bogey-free round, just like she did in first round action when she also carded a 4-under par score. She finished the tournament with a 7-under par 209 total, placing second to Furman’s Haylee Harford, who had a three-round total score of 9-under par 207.

Starting the final round on hole 10, Tseng had birdies on the par-5 4th hole and then after making the turn, carded birdies on the par 5 2nd hole and back-to-back birdies on the par-3 4th and the par-4 5th hole.

For Tseng, she has now placed among the top-5 in her first two collegiate tournaments for the Hurricane.

Tulsa senior Olivia Jackson saved her best round for the final 18 holes as she carded a one-under par 71 to finish in 48th place overall in the field of 90 golfers. Jackson had six birdies on the day, but suffered a triple-bogey on the par-4 6th hole.

The adjustment hasn’t come quite as quickly for TU’s other highly touted freshman. Shaelee Scarberry shot rounds of 78-73-78 to finish in 65th place in her second collegiate event.

Sophomore Taylor Dobson shot 234 to finish 72nd and freshman Jasmine Zhang shot 235 and was 73rd.

Tulsa will be back in action, Oct. 5-7, at the Ron Moore Intercollegiate in Denver, Colorado.
