Yanjun Liu, Princeton claim titles at Moss Creek
The Princeton Tigers women’s golf team took the long trip down to the Lowco to compete in the Lowcountry Intercollegiate, and they left Moss Creek Golf Club with some hardware.
The Tigers held the lead after all three rounds against a competitive 16-team field, and Princeton’s Yanjun Liu also went wire-to-wire to claim the individual title, shooting a stellar 2-under-par 214 to edge USC Upstate’s Suwarin Yordin by four shots.
The North Course at Moss Creek played extremely tough with difficult weather conditions, but Liu wasn’t scared, as she was the only player to finish in red numbers. Liu carded a final round 71 (-1) to clinch the win with two birdies on her back nine. Yordin finished second at 2-over with USC Upstate teammate Beem Papsimma tied for third with Columbia’s Taylor Zeng at 4-over.
Princeton came out on top of the team standings, shooting 24-over-par 888 for a 13-shot difference over USC Upstate and 17 strokes ahead of third-place Eastern Kentucky. Host Wofford Terriers tied for eighth, carding a 948 (+84) as a team with senior Becca Earl shooting 10-over and picking up her third consecutive top 10 this season.
USCB shot 985 and finished 14th, ahead of NCAA Division I programs Presbyterian and The Citadel. Ashleigh Mead led the charge for the Sand Sharks, tying for 23rd at 16-over.
