(Miami Lakes, FL) - USF women's golf shot a second round 314 on day two of the 2007 Papa John's Invitational, hosted by Miami at Don Shula's Golf Course on Tuesday. The Dons enter the final round tied for fifth place with the host Hurricanes at 630 as scores were high throughout the field for the second straight due to strong winds.
Sophomore Natasha Podmore moved into a share of second place on the individual leader board at 153 (77, 76), just three strokes back of San Jose State's Erica Moston. Louiville retains the overall lead at 621 (308, 311), followed by the Spartans at 623 (312, 311) and East Carolina at 625 (314, 311). South Florida owns the fourth spot at 629 (318, 311), while the Dons (316, 314) and Hurricanes (317, 313) round out the top-five at 630.
Junior Jessica Potter owns a share of 12th place at 157 (78, 79), while freshman Christina Stockton share the 30th spot at 161 (83, 78). Tough pin locations and wind have contributed to elevated scores as no individual has reached par on the par-72, 6,317 yard course and no team has carded a sub-300 round.
"Today we didn't play the way we wanted to, but we are still in a position to make a move," USF head coach Josh Cupp said. "Natasha has a great opportunity to capture her first tournament which is exciting. Everyone on this team can play better than they have so far and I look for them to do so tomorrow."
