Shrout fires 84 in third round at nationals
RAPID CITY, S.D. – Lewis-Clark State College senior Cortney Shrout found the wind again troubling at the NAIA National Women's Golf Tournament as she fired an 84 on Thursday to stand in a tie for 55th place after three rounds of play.
Shrout, who also played windy conditions on Tuesday when she shot an 85, did qualify for the fourth and final round on Friday when the NAIA decided to let all golfers play on the final day.
Shrout stands at 247 for the tournament and is the lone player for LCSC at the tournament.
During Thursday's round, Shrout hit seven greens in regulation and had 32 putts. She drove the ball well, but couldn't match it with her short game. Her 12-over-par round featured nine bogeys, two double bogeys and her second birdie of the tournament.
California Baptist's Nathalie Silva leads the individual field with a 225 total, two strokes ahead of her nearest competitor. In the team standings, the University of British Columbia has a one shot lead over Oklahoma City.
