The Valparaiso University women’s golf team battled through heavy winds and unusual weather conditions to notch a dual-match victory over Grace College on Wednesday afternoon at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton, Ind. Junior Payton Hodson (Middleton, Wis. / Middleton) had the best score of the day for the Brown & Gold.
How It Happened
Inside the Round
Thoughts from Head Coach Jill McCoy
“The conditions were extremely tough today. Payton Hodson had a phenomenal score of 77 with a one-under par of 35 on the Marsh nine. Morgan Kier lit it up on the putting green with a lot of one-putts. While the scores weren’t the best, playing the way we did given the conditions was the confidence booster we need to help propel us into the spring.”
After three days of fall competition, the next time Valpo takes the course in a tournament setting will be the spring 2021 season.
