APSU Women’s Golf gains ground after 36 holes in Springfield


APSU Women's GolfSpringfield, MO – While the opening round for Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s golf team held promise, the second round at the Missouri State Payne Stewart Memorial indicated there was plenty left to be done for the Govs in the 2019-20 campaign.

Through 36 holes, the Govs find themselves in 10th with a two-round 617 (304-313), a precipitous drop that took them from one shot outside the top-five to needing to gain ground in Tuesday’s final round. UTEP (589) leads the tournament, with host Missouri State (591) two shots back.

The Governors top returner, Taylor Dedmen, shook off a six-over opening round to post a second-round 75 and a birdie on the 493-yard par-5 at No. 8. She has a shot at a top-20 finish, sitting one shot behind the current top-20.

Senior Meghann Stamps was two holes away from a very good day, but a double at No. 17 in the first and another on No. 9 in the second conspired to leave her at 154 (76-78) through two rounds. Sophomore Shelby Darnell is one shot behind at 155 (75-80), with her opening-round 75 tying Dedmen for Monday’s best round by a Gov.

Juniors Riley Cooper (76-80—156) and Andrea Presilla (83-82—165) rounded out the day for the Govs, with Presilla making her first appearance in the Austin Peay State University lineup.

Final-round action at Twin Oaks Country Club begins 8:30am, Tuesday, with a shotgun start. The APSU Govs will be paired with Oklahoma City and Drury.
