The problem for the Alabama women’s golf team in the Southeastern Conference Tournament is that the Crimson Tide can’t make up enough ground after its poor start in the first round.
Alabama Coach Mic Potter noted that after Saturday’s second round at the Legacy Course at Greystone Country Club in Birmingham, “We were 10 shots better today so I’m pleased with that. But we could have finished the round better. Now we just have to go out and shoot a low round tomorrow and see what happens.”
Alabama rebounded from its first round with a three-under-par performance on Saturday over the 6,202-yard, par 72 layout. The Crimson Tide enters Sunday’s final round in seventh place at four-over-par (295-285—580).
Alabama will be paired with LSU in Sunday’s final round and will tee off beginning at 10:08 a.m. (CT).
Florida shot 8-under par on Saturday and holds the overall lead at 12-under par (284-280/564). Georgia (287-282/569) is second at 7-under par after a 6-under par second round. Arkansas (283-287/570) is third at 6-unde par. Texas A&M (282-290/572) is fourth at 4-under par. Georgia, Tennessee (287-286/573) is sixth at 3-under par and South Carolina (286-290/576) is sixth at even par.
Freshman Kristen Gillman (72-69/141) again led the Tide on Saturday with a 3-under par 69 that moved her to ninth place in the individual standings. Sophomore Cheyenne Knight (75-70/145) was 2-under par on Saturday and is now tied for 23rd at 1-over par. Sophomore Lauren Stephenson (74-72/146) played an even-par round Saturday and is now tied for 28th. Senior Mia Landegren (75-74/149) finished with a 2-over par round to sit in a tie for 40th. Junior Lakareber Abe (74-80/154) was 8-over par on Saturday and is now tied for 61st.
