Alabama women's golf team trails by 5 shots in NCAA regional

LSU senior Caroline Nistrup rolled in a long eagle putt from just off the green on the par five second hole to get her opening round of the NCAA Lubbock Regional jump started and finished the day with an even par round of 72. Purdue and Ohio State are tied for third (302, +14), and Marta Martin Garcia of the Boilermakers sits atop the individual leaderboard at 2-under 70. Alabama, Georgia, Northwestern, Baylor and Tennessee hold places two through six; the top six teams after 54 holes advance to the NCAA Championship.

The Mules will tee off in Tuesday's second round beginning at 7:45 a.m. on the back nine. After a double bogey, bogey start had him at three-over after two holes, Springer played the final 16 holes at eight-under par including six straight birdies to close out the front nine at three-under. We just need to take it one shot at a time, and it's going to be a marathon out there.

Sophomore Kathleen Scavo shot a 74 and was tied for 17th for the Ducks, who were at 6 over, one shot behind leader Arizona State, as they try to advance to the NCAA Championship for the second consecutive year. The Cowgirls are 17 shots behind first-round leader Pepperdine, which at 1-under leads Stanford by one stroke.

Freshman Sarah Shipley, playing in her first career NCAA Regional, had the second-best round of the day for the Wildcats.

Ismail Haniyeh replaced Qatar-based Khaled Mashaal in the terrorist organization's top position as head of the political bureau. Ismail Haniya, a former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, could help bring Hamas back into the global conversation.

Ryan Peruski scored an even par score of 72, rounding-out the scoring for the Cardinals. 10 and 12, the Carolina newcomer bounced back with another birdie on the par-4 16th.

"I hope that our team felt this, but I sure felt more confident about the plan out there having played here in the fall", UO coach Ria Scott said in a release.

"We didn't have our best day, but we're right there in it". "The wind picked up a bit this afternoon and it was great to see the guys play solid despite the conditions". Cara Barker had two of Tech's three birdies during that stretch, both of which came over the two par-5s that closed the round. Her round featured a pair of birdies.
