A press release from the University of North Georgia Athletics Department explained that UNG junior, Megan Sabol, is now tied for third place after the UNG women’s golf team finished in fifth place at the Patsy Rendleman Invitational at the Country Club of Salisbury held on Tuesday.
Sabol scored a one-under 71, and the Nighthawks broke the single round scoring record by eight strokes in the final round with a two-over 290.
Sabol’s two-under 142 put her in a tie for third and All-Tournament honors, as well as the second best 36-hole score in program history. She finished two strokes behind Lenoir-Rhyne’s Abbey Hartsell for the lead. Sabol finished with eight birdies in the event, including birdieing three of the four par fives on the course in the final round.
The Nighthawks posted a 596 in the event, which is the best 36-hole score in program history, beating the Battle at Old South result from earlier this season by five strokes.
Jordyn Sims also scored, with a two-under round of 70, which tied her for second all-time in a single round with Sabol and Karson Stone. Sims had three birdies in Tuesday’s round to improve 11 strokes from the first to the second round.
