Golf Continues to Re-Write UM History Books


MEDINAH, Ill. – For the fifth consecutive round, the University of Miami golf team finished under-par, wrapping up Tuesday’s third round action at the Illini Women’s Invitational at Medinah scoring eight-under, 280. Overall, the Canes placed fourth with an 18-under-par performance at the par 72, 6,159-yard Medinah Country Club golf course.
A week removed from setting the lowest par 71, three-round total at 17-under, 835, the Canes followed it up with the lowest par 72, 54-hole performance in program history, scoring 846.
“We are playing so well. We just needed a few more putts to drop, but our turn will come. Our scores are better than ever, so I’m very proud,” head coach Patti Rizzo said. “Women’s college golf is very strong this year. These young women are getting so good, it’s surprising how good the top teams are.”
The two-day event was built on an eagle, 46 birdies and 182 pars, as junior Macarena Aguilera and sophomore Kristyna Frydlova tied-for-sixth with 12 birdies apiece.
Following an opening round bogey on the par-three, 171-yard 15th hole, senior Dewi Weber went 39-consecutive holes tallying a par or birdie to finish tied-for-seventh at six-under-par. The top-10 finish marked the 18th of the Grongingen, Netherlands, native’s career.
Ranking second on the team, Frydlova continued a strong start to her sophomore campaign, hitting under-par in all three rounds to finish the invitational tied-for-11th at four-under-par. On Tuesday, the Prague, Czech Republic, native carded four birdies finishing at two-under, 70.
Leading the team with a three-under, 69, in the third round, Aguilera registered five birdies on the morning, while wrapping up the tournament tied-for-13th at three-under-par.
Claudia De Antonio finished play at the Medinah Country Club strong at two-under with three birdies as the graduate student tied-for-27th at one-over, 217.
Junior Renate Grimstad rounded out the Canes’ lineup at eight-over-par, tying-for-66th.
The Hurricanes will return to the green in 19 days, when they travel to San Marcos, Texas for the Jim West Challenge Oct. 28-29.
