COLUMBIA, Mo. – The UMKC women’s golf team wrapped up the Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Mo. this week with a 12th place finish after 54 holes.
With schools from many different regions participating in the event, there were many players from top to bottom that could fill up the scoreboard in a hurry at the The Club at Old Hawthorne.
One player who put on a good showing for UMKC this week was freshman player Theresa de Bochdanovits (Kitz, Germany), who delivered with a finish at T-26th and +8 overall for the tournament. The top scorer for the Roos all week, Bochdanovits consistently hit the ball well and kept her strokes down as the tournament continued. Senior player Cynthia Diaz (Bucaramanga, Colombia) found herself in the middle of the pack this week in Columbia, Mo. with a finish at T-42nd (+12). Diaz’s best round came on the second day of the tournament where she posted a score of 73, jumping her up the leaderboard spot heading into round three.
Coming up from the individual player card to the team lineup this week at The Club at Old Hawthorne was freshman player Jaime Bellingham (Auckland, New Zealand). Bellingham shot the ball with poise but did not move a ton at the leaderboard this week with scores of 77, 78 and a 77 to end round three on Wednesday.
The team played very well as a whole when it came to par four scoring, as the Roos finished tied for third with an average stroke of 4.28 per hole and an overall score of +14 for the tournament. UMKC also knocked in eight birdies and 48 pars to end their stay at the Johnie Imes Invitational.
Following the Johnie Imes Invitational, UMKC will take a few weeks off before packing their bags and heading down south to a warm climate area to compete in the FIU Pat Bradley Invitational in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. on Sunday, Oct. 28th through Tuesday, Oct. 30th.
