Elon Women’s Golf Begins Final Fall Event

MACON, Ga. – The Elon University women’s golf team bounced back from an opening round 320 to post a 306 over its final 18 holes of the opening day of the 2017 Idle Hour Collegiate Championship on Monday, Oct. 30. The Phoenix ended the day eighth in the 12-team field.

In a tie for 30th is Aurelia Hamm who carded a two-round mark of 158. She posted five total birdies, including three in her final round when she shot a one-over 73.

Two strokes back in a tie for 39th are Adel Vadkerti, who notched all three of her birdies over her first 18 holes of the day, and Hilda Kristjansdottir, who posted three total birdies.

Katherine Reilly finished with two birdies on her way to a tie for 57th as Elon’s final member of the five team participants.
