Sycamore Golf set to open the MVC Championship on Sunday
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State Women’s Golf will make its third trip to Missouri State in the 2021-22 season with the Sycamores traveling to Kirkwood, Mo. for the Valley Conference Championship Missouri 2022 to be held Sunday through Tuesday at the par-71 Greenbriar Hill Country Club.
Currently ranked sixth in the Missouri Valley Conference by Golfstat after finishing 10 tournaments this season, the Sycamores will look to continue building on their success this season heading into the playoffs.
“I’m really looking forward to the challenge of Greenbriar Hills. We had an ambitious schedule this spring season with six events, and we had several cut shorts due to storms, but it still gave us a bit more time on the course rather than the beach.” the head coach Greg City Noted. “We’ve had some good practice this week and I think we’re going to surprise people, especially with a pair of seniors like Madison and Lauren in the lead.”
The 54-hole event kicks off Sunday with tee times starting at 11 a.m. ET. Monday’s second round and Tuesday’s third round will both feature tee times starting at 9 a.m. ET. Live results throughout the event can be found HERE.
ISU has placed in the top four four times this season, including a third-place finish at the Indiana State Invitational in early April. The Sycamores are averaging 311.38 shots over 26 rounds, putting them ahead of SIU, UNI, UE and Valpo heading into the playoffs.
Coach Towne will lay out a familiar formation as Lawrence Green, Madison Branum, Kristen Hobbs, Chelsea Morrow and Molly Lee get the go-ahead for the championship event.
Green paced the ISU despite battling injuries throughout the spring season. She appeared in all 10 tournaments (26 rounds) for the ISU while posting a team best stroke average of 76.27 which ranks 12th in the MVC. Green recorded back-to-back MVC Golfer of the Week honors in the fall after finishing third at the APSU Intercollegiate before shooting a career-low 70 in the final round of the Butler Invitational to finish fifth.
