Results Are In For The 16th Landfall Tradition

By Jason R. Cherry, PGA Director of Golf

It was another great edition of our annual Landfall Tradition Collegiate Women's golf tournament. The field consisted of 18 of some of the best teams in the country with nine of the teams currently ranked in the top 20 with five of those ranked in the top ten!

The first two days of competition saw perfect weather, light winds, and great course conditions which aided in some great scoring. Duke University, ranked #4 nationally shot a team score of 11-under par day one; giving them a one shot lead over the University of Alabama who is ranked #2 nationally. Round two was another show down between the two five teams as both shot team scores of 3-under par and distancing them from 3rd place team Michigan State, ranked nationally at 16th. Unfortunately, mother nature did not cooperate as well for our final round today and we were forced to cancel the round; which crowned Duke University as our 2017 Team Champions with the one shot victory!!

(L-R): Head Coach Dan Brooks, Miranda Wang, Jaravee Boonchant, Leona Maguire, Ana Belac, Virginia Elena Carta, and Assistant Coach Jon Whithaus.

As tightly contested as the team event was, the Individual competition was even closer. Ana Belac of Duke University, despite bogeying her final two holes fired an impressive 66 on day one. She held a one-shot lead over Lauren Stephenson of the University of Alabama and a two-shot lead over Beth Lillie of the University of Virginia. Belac fired a second round 69 but it was not enough to stay in front of the red-hot Lillie as she carded a bogey free 67 on day two to have both players finish at 9-under par and be crowned the co-Individual Champions. 

(L-R): Beth Lillie (University of Virginia) & Ana Belac (Duke University)

No tournament of this size and quality can be successful without a strong volunteer base. This has been a key factor in the tournament’s success in the past.

Once again, we are looking for volunteers for the Fall tournament. We hope to welcome back volunteers from previous years but would like to extend the opportunity to anyone who may have an interest. Areas of need are diverse and schedules are flexible.

This is a fun yet important way to be a part of the tournament.
