Midway women’s golf ends season at NAIA championship

Weather played a factor in the first three days of the 2017 NAIA Women’s Golf National Championship, but Mother Nature cooperated on the final day to allow the golfers to complete the tournament. The championship, which was played at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., May 23 to 26, was supposed to be a 72-hole championship, but the weather forced the tournament to be dropped to 54-holes. At the conclusion of the second round, Midway finished in 23rd place with a two-round total of 688. The Eagles shot a 341 in the first round and a 347 in the second round. With their 23rd-place finish at the end of the second round, the Eagles, unfortunately, missed the 36-hole cut. The final team to make the cut was Faulkner (Ala.), who shot a 664 in their first two rounds. On the bright side for the Eagles, junior Kathryn Lawler, did make the cut and played her third and final round on Friday morning. Lawler opened the tournament with a 75 (37-38) in her opening round on Tuesday. At the end of her first round, she was in a tie for fourth place. After shooting an 83 (38-45) in the second round, she was in a tie for 19th place and trailed the leader by eight strokes going into Friday’s play. In her third and final round on Friday, Lawler started her day on the back nine and opened with back-to-back pars, but finished with a 6-over, 42 on the par 36 back nine. She improved on the front nine and scored a 4-over, 40 to finish with an 82 overall. Other scores from the first two rounds from Midway included: freshman Hannah Scroggins with a 176 (88-88); junior Amanda Cox with a 177 (92-85); junior Chelsea Schack with a 181 (88-93); and sophomore Rylee Beard also with a 181 (90-91).
