Campbell claims 2009 JU Classic title
The wind died down on Tuesday and the scores were lower, but Campbell continued its dominant play to win the 2009 JU Classic at Hidden Hills Country Club.
Campbell’s Sarah Bejgrowicz, the overnight co-leader, posted a four-over par 76 in the final round to finish at six-over par, 150, to win the individual title by four shots over Florida Atlantic’s Praewnapa Phol-Uayporn.
Aiding Bejgrowicz title run for the Camels was Michelle Koh, who tied the low round of the day with a three-over par 75, with Belen Diaz Cisneros shooting a 78 along with Mary Mattson and Sandra Angulo – who each posted a round of 80, allowing Campbell to post a 309 in the final round.
Campbell won the team title by 18 shots over Stetson.
Bejgrowicz opened up a two-shot lead after the front nine, with a three shot swing on holes eight and nine. Bejgrowicz went birdie-par while Phol-Uayporn went par-double bogey, to fall behind.
A triple bogey on the par-5 11th for Phol-Uayporn put her behind by five, cutting the deficit to four with a par to Bejgrowicz bogey on the 12th, but was unable to make up any ground over the final six holes.
Jacksonville finished in fifth place after posting a final round 323, the fourth best team score of the day.
Leading the way was freshman Morgan Jackson, who posted a season-best 75 to finish alone in third individually.
Her round did not get off to an auspicious start, as she bogeyed two of her first three holes and compounded it later with a double bogey on the par-3 seventh.
Sitting a four-over par for her round, she birdied No. 8 and 9 to make the turn at two-over par.
She answered a bogey on the par-5 15th with a birdie on the par-3 16th and only a bogey on the par-4 18th finished her tournament at 11-over par, 155.
Senior Alexandra Anderson finished tied for 13th after posting a 10-over par 82, to finish with two-day total of 161, 17-over par.
Paige Gifford had the second best round of the day for JU, carding an eight-over par 80 to tie for 30th at 27-over par, 171. Jessica Williams shot an 86 to tie for 23rd at 24-over par, 168.
Allison Cornell posted a 94 to finish alone in 45th at 188, 44-over par.
