Women’s golf ready to compete in Lady Paladin Invitational

Womens golf ready to compete in Lady Paladin Invitational

The women’s golf team goes into this weekend’s Lady Paladin Invitational in Greenville, S.C., with only one of the five golfers having experience on the tournament’s course.Out of the five players competing – senior Carrie Morris, sophomore Valentine Derrey and freshmen Prisela Campbell, Allyson Ferguson and Melissa Loh – Morris is the only one with any experience on the golf course at Furman University.

“This will give me an extra leadership role and I will have to set an example for the team,” said Morris, who shot an 80 and an 85, respectively, in the first two rounds before withdrawing from last year’s event.

The competition will be difficult again this year with teams such as Northwestern University, who won the event last year, returning to compete in the event.

Head coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said every NCAA Division I school has great players and in order to win this tournament, all of TCU’s players must play hard.

“Everyone has to do their part,” Ravaioli-Larkin said. “That is our main focus.”

Ravaioli-Larkin and Morris agreed the team can win this weekend, but the coach said focus will be a key. The team finished sixth in last year’s tournament.

“We have to have a good short game, hit a lot of greens and fairways and focus on our strengths,” Ravaioli-Larkin said. “We have to concentrate on what we have control over.”

Early-season tournaments such as this weekend’s are just as important as the ones later in the season, Ravaioli-Larkin said.

“These tournaments affect our rankings, so we have to get off to a good start to put us in a good position,” Ravaioli-Larkin said. “The first tournament is just as important as the last. We are going to place the same importance on this tournament as we would the conference championship, that way when we get there, it isn’t any different.
