UTC Women Travel To LSU Women's Tiger Golf Classic

Thursday, March 22, 2018
The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team returns to the tee this weekend in Baton Rouge, La., for the LSU Tiger Golf Classic. The three-day, 54-hole event starts Friday at the University Club.

The Mocs are making their first foray in the event. Duke swept team and medalist honors (Leona Maguire) a year ago. The 12-team field features one top 25 opponent – No. 25 Virginia – four top 50 and eight total ranked in the top 100 including Chattanooga.

The strong field presents a challenge for one recent streak.
The Mocs have placed at least one in the top 10 in the three team events this spring, with a different culprit each time.

Monica San Juan and Megan Woods got it started at the Moon Golf Invite tying for second and eighth, respectively, in February. Woods repeated the effort the next time out tying for sixth at the UNF Collegiate. Last weekend, Cristina Perez tied for ninth at the Hawkeye El Tigre Invitational.

This is the penultimate regular season event with only the Brickyard Collegiate (April 8-10), two weeks later, prior to the Southern Conference Championships, April 15-17. It runs Friday through Sunday with 18 holes per day. Check out live scoring, pairings and tournament notes at the links above.

Here’s a look at the lineup along with a few extra tidbits for the weekend.

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
