SMU women’s golf earned a fourth place finish at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Hawaii, thanks to a two-spot jump on the event’s final day. The Mustangs carded their best team score on Wednesday, one-under 287, and shot 14-over (878: 299, 292, 287) to earn their fourth top-five finish of the season.

Junior Jenny Haglund led SMU with a tie for fourth place individually, shooting a one-under 71 in the final round with 17 pars. She jumped one spot on the final day. Haglund also added a hole-in-one on the event’s second day, which came on the par-3, 170-yard 17th hole. It was also her second eagle in many days.

Sophomore Lindsey McCurdy carded her second top-10 individual performance with 219 (76, 70, 73), which tied her for ninth. She had 16 holes of par-or-better in her final round one-over 73.

Junior Jennifer Park overcame three bogeys on her first four holes with three birdies in the final five to finish at even par on the third day. Her 54-hole score of 220 (76, 72, 72) tied her for 17th place. Sophomore Evelyn Doyle finished one-under 71 in the final round, and her 227 (77, 79, 71) earned her a tie for 30th, while junior Alexandra Rossi’s 229 was tied for 41st.

UC Davis finished one-under as a team to claim the title, and had the top two individual finishers. SMU was four strokes behind third-place Louisville and one ahead of fifth-place Oregon.
