Panthers sit at bottom of the leader board after day one

The first day of the UCF Challenge came to a close, and the Georgia State Women’s golf team found themselves in an undesirable spot after each player completed their 18 holes.

The Panthers finished day one 17 over par and tied for 17 place with Oregon State. The team shot 305 total.

South Carolina had an exemplary first day of the tournament ending four under par. North Carolina, the University of Central Florida, and Augusta State all tied for second shooting one under par. They were the only teams out of the 18 to finish the day under par. Tulane finished the day with an even score.

Panther’s Julie Lied had the best looking scorecard at the end of the day finishing two over par and shooting a 74. Maria Palacios held steady at even for most of the front nine holes, but was shaky on the back nine shooting three bogeys and a double bogey.  Palacios ended the day four over par.

The team will rest tonight and then get right back at it tomorrow morning for day two of the tournament as they try and make their way back up the leaderboard.
