Rookie Neumann Wins Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic

ROOKIE NEUMANN WINS EDWIN WATTS/KIAWAH ISLAND CLASSIC

 

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC March 5, 2013 – Freshman Julia Neumann (Berlin, Germany) took home individual medalist honors on the final day of the Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic held on Tuesday afternoon as the top 15 teams played for the tournament title at Cougar Point Golf Course on the Kiawah Island Golf Resort.

 

Neumann, competing in only her third collegiate tournament for the Cougars, played even through the majority of the front nine with one birdie on Hole No. 7. She later made three bogeys and two birdies on the back nine to finish at two-over par in the final round good enough for a three-round score of 219 (+3).

One of the top 25-ranked women’s amateur golfers in Germany prior to CofC, Neumann shot a career-low round of 71 and was in a three-way tie for first place after Monday’s second round.

 

She won the largest collegiate golf tournament in the country by one stroke over Julia Roth of Central Arkansas (+4) and defending tournament champion Fanny Cnops of UNCG and Harin Lee of St. John’s (+5). Richmond’s Tracy Martin, who played in the top grouping with Neumann going into the final round, placed fifth at +6 to join the other four on the All-Tournament Team.

 

After leading the 32-team field by nine strokes on Sunday and four strokes on Monday, the Cougars carded a three-round total of 902 (+38) and were edged by No. 36-ranked Campbell in the team competition. CofC’s starters had trouble on the back nine, while Campbell matched its second-round total on the final day with a 299 to win the tournament by three strokes with an 899 (+35).

 

“We got beat by a more experienced team today,” CofC Head Coach Jamie Futrell said. “That’s their fourth tournament win of the year and our inexperience showed on the back nine today. We’ll be there again. That’s what I told the team, because we’re very talented. Julia (Neumann) played awesome. She was rock solid all weekend and rock solid today. I’m very happy that she won. Campbell is a great team. We knew they were going to come at us, and next time, we’ll have a little bit more form.”

 

Senior Kathy Boehm (Munich, Germany) made a top 25 finish with a three-round score of 76-77-75—228 (+12) for a five-way tie for 21st, while freshman Mary Chandler Bryan (Chapin, S.C.), who competed as an individual, tied for 13th at 10-over for the tournament – her second top 15 finish of her rookie campaign.

 

CofC will next compete at the Mountain View Collegiate on March 15-16 in Tucson, Ariz.
