Lady Bulldogs rally to win Mason Rudolph Championship
The No. 10-ranked Georgia women's golf team collected its first win of the 2003-04 campaign last Sunday in impressive fashion, capturing top honors at Vanderbilt's Mason Rudolph Championship against a field which included five other top-10 teams.
The Lady Bulldogs shot 293 in the final round, six strokes better than anyone else in the 17-team field. In the process, Georgia erased a five-shot deficit to No. 2 UCLA entering the day to defeat the Bruins by four strokes, 874-878. No. 6 Vanderbilt (886), No. 9 Florida (889) and No. 8 Arizona (891) rounded out the top-five teams.
The Lady Bulldogs' final day score was even more impressive considering the difficult weather conditions they endured throughout the round.
"It was real cold and windy all day," McCorkle said. "When we teed off, it was about 50 degrees and the wind was blowing about 20 miles per hour. The wind blew steady like that all day. It was a tough day, but we got off to a great start. I couldn't be prouder of the way we stuck to it all day. I really think this is the kind of thing we can do all year."
