In their final tournament of the fall season, the Cal State Fullerton women’s golf team finished fourth place in the 18th Annual Fighting Camel Classic. The tournament, which was hosted by Campbell University, took place Monday and Tuesday in Buies Creek, N.C. The teams competed at the Keith Hills Country Club on the Orange and Black Courses.
The Titans shot the best final round compared to the other teams. In the final round, the team shot a 304, which launched them into fourth place beating fifth place Rollins College by two strokes.
The team played well in the tournament posting a 61-over-par 925 in the 54-hole event. Campbell University won the tournament for the 14th time shooting a 34-over-par 898. They set a new record in the tournament with that score.
Sophomore Seri Lee led the Titans individually and took second place in the tournament. This is the second time this season that Lee has placed second, the other coming in the Cougar Cup tournament on Sept. 24-25.
Lee played excellently in the tournament. She was superb in Tuesday’s competition, shooting a 1-under-par 71.
Her score tied for the fourth lowest score in the tournament’s history.
It matched her best set, which she also achieved in the first and third rounds of the Cougar Cup tournament.
Two other Titans finished in the top 25 in the tournament individually. Senior Taylor Fowler finished in a tie for 22nd place after posting an 80 in Tuesday’s play. Overall, Fowler shot an 18-over-par 234.
The other top 25 finisher was sophomore Tisha Alyn Abrea. Abrea played better on Tuesday than she did on Monday. She shot 2-over-par 74 in Tuesday’s action, which helped her recover from her pair of 80s on Monday. She finished the tournament in 24th place.
Seniors Neomi Hunt and Deidre Crabtree finished 30th and 34th respectively.
After day one of tournament action, the Titans were in fifth place, 29 shots behind the tournament leader and host Campbell University.
Seri Lee led the Titans individually after day one. She was in a three-way tie for sixth place with a 5-over-par 149 after the first day of play. Lee shot a 74 and 75 in the first two rounds of golf. The only other Titan in the top 20 after the first day of tournament action was Taylor Fowler, who tied for 17th place. Fowler finished 10-over-par shooting 77 in both rounds.
The Titans have finished their fall season after competing in four tournaments. They have placed fourth or better in every tournament this season. The highlight of the fall season was the team’s first place finish and tournament win in the Rose City Collegiate tournament.
CSUF will take the winter off before beginning their spring season on Feb. 11 in the Long Beach State hosted, Farmers Insurance presented, Gold Rush tournament. The tournament will be played Feb. 11-12 at the Yorba Linda Country Club in Yorba Linda, California.
