Despite Clanton's 66, Tigers 11th

Auburn wrapped up play at the women's golf national championship tournament on Friday.

Wilmington, N.C.--Despite a bogey-free round of 66 by junior Cydney Clanton, Auburn dropped three spots to finish tied for 11th at the NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

Clanton finished her round on Friday with six birdies and 12 pars to finish at seven-under-par 281. That put her tied for third individually behind Caroline Hedwall of Oklahoma State who won the tournament with a 276 to finish four shots ahead of Arizona State's Johnson.

However, third-ranked Auburn's other four players struggled on Friday as the Tigers finished at 11-over-par 1,183 in a tie with Texas A&M.

Purdue was the surprise winner. The eight-ranked Boilermakers shot a one-over-par 1,153 to edge Southern Cal by a stroke.

Patricia Sanz shot a 77 on Friday and her teammates Candace Schepperle and Haley Wilson rounded out the Auburn scoring with 78s. The Tigers did not have to count an 80 from Carlie Yadloczky.
