Posted: Updated:
JOHNS ISLAND, SC -

Reigning CAA Women’s Golfer of the Week Laura Fuenfstueck (Frankfurt, Germany) shot 3-over par after the first 36 holes of tournament play to pace the College of Charleston women’s golf team at the Briar’s Creek Invitational held on Monday at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek.

Fuenfstueck, a freshman who has won two tournaments this year, bounced back from an opening-round 77 and shot 2-under in the second round to sit in a four-way tie for fourth with Ashley Burke of South Florida, Ashlan Ramsey of Clemson and Christina Vosters of Penn State. Frida Gustafsson Spang of East Carolina, Lauren Salazar of Clemson and Alexandria Papell of Maryland share the lead at +1.

As a team, the Cougars are tied for 10th with South Florida (+38) in a 17-team tournament field comprised of five Top 50-ranked Golfstat.com teams in No. 11 Clemson, No. 34 GRU Augusta, No. 40 Kansas, No. 46 Wisconsin and No. 48 Illinois. Augusta leads by four strokes over East Carolina (+24) in second, Clemson (+25) in third, Texas Tech (+26) in fourth and East Tennessee State (+27) and Penn State (+27) tied for fifth.

“Laura (Fuenfstueck) carried us today,” CofC Head Coach Jamie Futrell said. “We have an opportunity to put together a better team effort tomorrow to give us a good finish in this tournament.”

Other individual highlights included sophomore Morgan Webber (Moore, S.C.) and junior C.C. Buford (San Antonio, Texas) in a tie for 32nd (+9). Buford, who is competing as an individual, eagled the par-5 18th to finish the second round with a 77. The total average score was 78.5 as golfers battled a wind chill and sub-par temperatures in the low 50s.

The Cougars will be paired with South Florida and Indiana in tomorrow’s final round scheduled for a 9 a.m. (ET) shotgun start. Live scoring will be available at: www.Golfstat.com.
