Hilton Head, S.C. – The Pfeiffer women's golf team hosted the Hilton Head Lakes Invite and finished the two day competition in 17th place. Conference Carolinas foe Limestone College took home first place with a team score of 632.
On the first day, the Falcons battled both the course and the winds as strong gusts of up to 20 mph came into play today shortly after the tournament began. Limestone and Montevallo sat at the top of the leaderboard as both teams turned in a 29 over par round of 317. The Falcons were short handed as number two golfer Danielle Haizlip was forced to withdraw in the first day of competition.
Sarah Baldwin picked up the slack in the second day of play, firing a team best 81 for the final 18 holes. Baldwin finished with the Falcons best score of the tournament at 171 and finished in the top 50 of the field. Lauren Lyle followed Baldwin with a final score of 177, while teammate Stephania Valgeirsdottir shot a combined 183.
Limestone and Wingate battled to the finish with the Saints narrowly taking the top spot thanks to a playoff win. Montevallo finished third, followed by Coker and Queens who rounded out the top five.
