Marshall women’s golf team places 2nd in season opener

Marshall’s Women’s Golf team travelled to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina and played in the Golfweek Program Championship. The team finished second overall as a team, just 4 strokes shy of finishing first.

“They fought hard,” head coach Brooke Burkhammer said. “They started off strong and they just kept the momentum and it was fun to watch.”

The Herd finished its first tournament of the season placing second overall out of 15 teams. The team shot 292 in the first round, tying them for third. A rocky second round dropped them to sixth place shooting 298. The Herd turned around the score in the third-round shooting 286 and climbing the leaderboard to second place.
