CHARLESTON, S.C. – Erica Creed and Sofia Aidemark both carded a second round 76 to lead UNC Greensboro’s second round 309 at the Cougar Classic women’s golf tournament Monday afternoon.
Georgia opened up a 13-shot lead on the second day of the tournament, taking a big lead over second-place Virginia. The Bulldogs’ Mallory Hetzel sits atop the individual leaderboard at 137, three shots ahead of a quartet of golfers that includes teammate Marta Silva.
Starting off on No. 10, Creed got off to a quick start and played the back side of the course in 35. But six bogeys and one birdie on the front side of the course left her four-over for the day. Also starting on No. 10, Aidemark was just the opposite, starting slowly in her first nine holes with a 42. But she recovered nicely with four birdies on the front side of the course for a 34 on the front and her 76 on the day.
The Spartans, who sit in 20th place in the team standings at 624, will wrap up play on Tuesday with an 8:45 am shotgun start.
