[break] The Georgia women’s golf team finished 12th in the Lady Puerto Rico Classic after shooting 313 in Tuesday’s final round at the Wyndham Rio Mar Resort & Country Club. The Bulldogs completed the 54-hole event at 932.
[break] [break] Amira Alexander provided Georgia’s low loop of the day, a 3-over 75. The Bulldogs’ remaining counting scores were a 76 from Manuela Carbajo Ré, a 79 from Isabella Skinner and an 80 from Harang Lee.
[break] [break] Overall, Carbajo Ré was UGA’s top individual finisher. She tied for 30th at 226. In addition, Alexander tied for 49th at 232, Lee tied for 55th at 233, Skinner tied for 71st at 241 and Rocio Sanchez Lobato finished 80th at 250.
[break] [break] “It’s disappointing,” head coach Josh Brewer said. “The positive is that it’s the first tournament of the year, and we have a lot of golf ahead of us. We’re better than we played. We have to do some things individually and as a team to get better and represent Georgia Golf the way it deserves to be represented. We have to be smarter in how we play and not complicate things. We need to do some soul searching and get to work figuring out how we can play better.”
[break] [break] No. 4 Arkansas and Iowa State’s Chonlada Chayanun completed their wire-to-wire runs atop the team and individual leaderboards. The Razorbacks finished at 876 to garner a seven-shot victory over runner-up No. 20 LSU. Chayanun covered her three loops in Puerto Rico at 7-under 209, five shots better than Hannah Kim of Northwestern who finished second.
[break] [break] Georgia will return to action in two weeks when the Bulldogs compete in the Bruin Wave Invitational co-hosted by UCLA and Pepperdine on March 2-3 at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, Calif.
