WILMINGTON, N.C. - UNC Greensboro’s Ashley Mylton fired even-par 72 on Sunday to help the Spartans to a final round 308 and a ninth place finish at The Landfall Tradition hosted by UNC Wilmington at Landfall Country Club.
After rounds of 79 and 80 the first two days, Mylton played the course at even-par on Sunday with three birdies and three bogies on the day to finish in a tie for 18t h place. Teammate Annelie Weimenhog shot a 76 on Sunday and wound up one shot behind Mylton in a tie for 22nd place.
Michigan State’s Sara Brown held on for the individual title. The second round leader after firing a 69 yesterday, Brown shot a 72 on Sunday to hold off Wake Forest’s Mandy Goins for a four-shot victory. Goins shot a 70 on Sunday, one of two sub-par rounds among the 60 players.
