Boyd Tied For Second, Huskies Move Up At Mason Rudolph Championship

Sep 25, 2021

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Husky sophomore Camille Boyd remains tied for second and the Huskies moved up three spots on the team leaderboard and into a tie for eighth after the second round of the Mason Rudolph Championship at Vanderbilt Legends Club on Saturday.

Boyd followed up Friday's first round 66 with a second round 2-under 70 to keep pace with the competitors at the top of the leaderboard. She and Kentucky's Jensen Castle enter Sunday's final round two strokes behind Oregon's Hsin-Yu Lu, who is -10 after she followed up a first round 66 with a second round 68.

"Camille had another solid sub-par round, which put her in a great position going into tomorrow, " Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur said from Nashville.

Boyd got her round off to a fast start with a birdie on her opening hole, the 382-yard par-4 10th. She made back-to-back bogeys on No. 11 and 12, but got back to even par for her round with a birdie on No. 17. She added a birdie on No. 1 and tallied an eagle-3 on the par-5 seventh hole to get down to -3, but a bogey on No. 8 brought her back to -2 for her round, where Boyd ended up finishing.

Boyd was not the only Husky to turn in a round under par on Saturday. Teammates Brittany Kwon (-2) and Kennedy Knox (-1) also got into the red and helped Washington make a move on the team leaderboard. The Huskies were 10 shots better than they were on Friday, combining to record a 3-under 285 (295-285=580) and are tied for eighth with Ohio State at +4 .

"We were more balanced today overall after adjusting to some of the conditions that were present," Mulflur said. "Having three players under par takes a lot of pressure off any one person. We clearly started out much better and were able to make more birdies as a group."

Kwon's round of 70 included just one bogey and three birdies. She was even par through 13 holes before rattling off a back-to-back birdie stretch on holes No. 5 and 6. Kwon's 70 moved her into a tie for 28th (75-70=145).

Knox started off shaky with a bogey on her opening hole, but the freshman calmed herself and was bogey free the rest of the day. She tallied birdies on holes No. 15 and No. 6 to card a 71, a nice bounce back from a first round 77. Knox is tied for 42nd at +4 overall.

Winnie Ng (74) and Jamie Hsieh (75) both improved from day one and are 60th and 65th respectively on the leaderboard.

The Huskies are one shot behind Georgia (+3) and two shots out of fifth place (Auburn and Vanderbilt, +2). Oregon (-17) and Alabama (-13) are jostling at the top of the leaderboard and head into the final round with a substantial lead over the other 13 teams in the field.

The Huskies will tee off at 5:00 a.m. PT on Sunday from the No. 1 tee box and will be paired with Georgia and Ohio State.
