The Mizzou Women’s Golf Team just finished a three day trip to Franklin, Tenn., where they competed in the 2019 Mason Rudolph Challenge, played at the Vanderbilt Legends Club North Course. After a hard fight, Mizzou narrowly missed the top 10. They crawled from 13th place to 11th place after shooting a 292 on the final day, which is a season-high mark, and a total score of 895 across all three days.

A couple of top-20 individual finishes for the Tigers increased the excitement for Mizzou on the day. Freshman Sophia Yoemans (Red Wing, Minn.) finished with a career-best three under par on the final day. That finish was good enough to move her to a 12th place finish. Junior Noelle Beijar (Assendelft, The Netherlands) hit a 71 on the final day, one under par, to finish the tournament in 19th place. Yoemans hit a 217 (72-76-69) and Beijar hit a 219 (75-73-71) over all three days.

Freshman Bri Bolden (Mokena, Ill.) also shot a career best on the final day of the tournament when she shot a 73, which was one over par. She took 51st place individually and shot a 227 (74-80-73) over the three day tournament.

Senior Cherise Otter (Bloomington, Ind.) finished 73rd overall after shooting a 234 (80-75-79) and Sophomore Julia Bower (Columbia, MO) finished 79th overall with a 240 (80-78-82) stat line over the three day tournament.

Next, the Women’s Golf Team plays in Columbia on Sept. 30-Oct. 2 as they host the 12th annual Johnie Imes Invitational at the Club at Old Hawthorne golf course. This young team looks to continue the tradition of winning this tournament, as they attempt to take the title for the sixth straight year.
