Record Setting Win at Mercedes!!

The Lady Vols hosted the Mercedes Benz Championship last weekend and WON with an awesome record setting performance. We shot 15 under as a team, breaking our previous best 54 hole total, and won the tournament by 20 strokes!! Counting 4 scores for 3 days and shooting 15 under is pretty awesome!

We were lead by TOURNAMENT CHAMPION Erica Popson, who shot 9 under par and won in a one hole playoff by making a 20 footer for birdie. This was Erica's first career win and I'm sure there will be many more to come! Sara Monberg also had an awesome week, shooting a career best 7 under par and finished 4th. On the last round, 5 of 8 Lady Vols broke par which is a sign of just how good this team is. Erica, Sara, Lauren, Kaitlyn and Rebecca all shot 71... Awesome!!

We have a break in action until the first weekend in November, so we have been enjoying some awesome fall weather and have been working hard! We even made a trip to the Honors Course in Chattanooga for a special day of practice.

Lady Vol Golf Clinic to benefit Komen

Today the Lady Vol golf team put on a golf clinic for over 50 participants at our new facility. It was a chilly day, but everyone had a great time and learned a lot from our players. Great JOB Lady Vols!!

Golfweek Challenge in Vail

We had a very fun trip to Vail, CO for the Golfweek Conference Challenge. After a shaky first round the Lady Vols found their games and came on strong the last two days to post a solid finish. The weather was awesome and the scenery beautiful! The only thing missing?? OXYGEN! The course was a tough walk and there was lots of huffing and puffing trying to get used to the thin air at 8000 feet!
