Olsson Shoots Career Round To Place Seventh at Briar's Creek Invitational

Posted: Updated:
JOHNS ISLAND, SC -

College of Charleston freshman Louise Olsson (Uddeholm, Sweden) fired a career-best round of 69 to finish tied for seventh on the individual leaderboard on the final day of the inaugural Briar's Creek Invitational held on Tuesday at The Golf Club at Briar's Creek. 

As a team, the Cougars climbed all the way from 14th to eighth place playing even through the front nine of the final round. The back nine proved more difficult and they finished 12th overall with a three-round score of 937 (+73). 

Olsson previously shot a career-best round of 72 in the second round of the Palmetto Intercollegiate in the fall. Her 69 tied as the second-lowest round of the 18-team tournament which included six top-50 ranked teams in the country. Olsson eagled Hole No. 18 after narrowly missing an eagle putt in the second round. 

"I knew we had tough holes to finish on and I wish we had done a little bit better towards the end," CofC Head Coach Jamie Futrell said. "We knew we were going to end up playing the hard part of the golf course at the end of the day, but I was hoping we wouldn't give back quite that many strokes. However, I was very proud of the team. They played really well, especially Louise (Olsson). She played an outstanding round of golf and she's really turning into a special player as just a freshman." 

Senior Vanessa Koechli (Greer, S.C.) also finished in the top 25 with a final-round score of 77 to put her at +16 for the tournament which put her in a seven-way tie for 25th.

No. 23-ranked Notre Dame won team and individual medalist honors shooting a three-round score of 906 (+42) which was eight strokes better than second-place Maryland (+50). The Fighting Irish's Ashley Armstrong shot one-over-par for the tournament for the individual victory. 

CofC will next host the Pinehurst Challenge on the Pinehurst #6 course on April 1-2 in Pinehurst, N.C.
