Women's Golf: Bobcats misfire in first spring tourney

The women’s golf team struggled throughout the Rio Verde tournament this weekend, placing 16th out of 17 teams in the field.  The Bobcats finished with a total score of 1,000 points, 90 short of tournament champion Eastern Michigan.

Junior Megan Weaver had Ohio’s top performance, scoring a 24-over-par 240 and placing tied for 54th.  Erin Cahill, who returned from an injured elbow during the fall, could not replicate the success she had at last year’s tournament.  Cahill finished 11 shots worse than last year with a 244.  

Freshman Kara Brinkmann also ended with a 28-over par 244, placing tied for 63rd.

Coach Kelly Ovington could not be reached for comment after the tournament. 

She said earlier in the week that she was impressed with Brinkman and how she improved her swing throughout the offseason.  The work Brinkmann put in was evident for the tournament as she shot a 78 in the third round — Ohio’s lowest score of the round — and finished tied for second on the team with Cahill for the tournament.  

Unfortunately for the Bobcats, it wasn’t enough as they struggled to gain their footing in the first tournament of the spring season.

Ohio will seek to bounce back from its struggles at Rio Verde in the next few weeks.  They take the green again March 21 and 22 for the MSU Ocala Spring Collegiate Invitational in Ocala, Fla.
