Tigers 12th at NCAA Women's Golf Championship

The Tigers are in the middle of the pack at national championship competition in New Mexico.

Albuquerque, N.M.--The Auburn women's golf team struggled for a second straight day heading into the final round of the NCAA Women's Golf Championship that will be played on Friday.

The Tigers, who are ranked 10th nationally, are in a three-way tie for 12th place with Alabama and Oklahoma State at 49-over-par, eight shots behind 11th place Purdue.

Auburn shot a 21-over-par total of 310 on Thursday after opening with a 289 and shooting a 315 on Wednesday.

After a weather delay on Wednesday forced play to resume for the second round on Thursday morning, the 24-team had a shotgun start on Thursday afternoon. That round was delayed, too, by lightning.

Freshman Sarah Thead led the Tigers with a four-over-par round of 76 on Thursday. She finished with 14 pars and four bogeys.

Another freshman, Cydney Clanton, was next at 77 followed by rounds of 78 from Margaret Shirley and 79 from Candace Schepperle. Auburn did not count the score of Mariana Macias, who finished with an 80.
