No. 20 DU Finishes 16th at Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship

Feb. 20, 2018


NEW ORLEANSThe 20th-ranked University of Denver women's golf team closed out its first spring tournament on Tuesday, finishing 16th at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship. The Pioneers finished with a 54-hole total of 74-over 938 (315-308-315).

Par was 72 at the 6,239-yard course at the English Turn Golf & Country Club.

No. 14 Florida took home the team title, winning by nine strokes over No. 12 Southern California.

Lindsay Kuhle went with the lineup of Sophie Newlove, Lauren Whyte, Mary Weinstein, Camille Enright and Jessica Dreesbeimdieke.



“This tournament was a challenge for us this week,” Kuhle said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t play to our ability this week. This tournament is challenging coming to a Nicklaus course with Bermuda grass, but to prepare for regionals and nationals, we need to experience this type of golf and field.

“Moving forward before Arizona, we will focus on our accuracy with our approach shots, wedges into the wind, all-around short game and grinding for all up-and-downs, both basic and difficult, and finally our confidence and mechanics with our putting, lag putting and taking advantage of birdie opportunities.”

Whyte and Weinstein both finished tied for 50th with a three-day total of 15-over.

“Mary was very consistent for us this week despite one bad hole the first day,” Kuhle said about her sophomore golfer. “We need more production out of our 1-3 players and someone who can consistently step in the four role on this team.”

Newlove tied for 75th.

Dreesbeimdieke had her best round of the tournament, posting a 6-over on the day.

Enright wrapped up her day with an 83.

“It’s all about how we respond to this tournament and overcome a disappointing finish,” Kuhle said. “This team is a group of ladies who are extremely competitive and high achievers and with an honest analysis and reflection and a proper game plan, we will come back stronger than we were before this event.”

The Crimson and Gold are back in action with the Arizona Wildcat Invitational on Mar. 5 in Tucson, Ariz.
