MSU Women's Golf Leads In Charlotte

Junior Taylor Klutts fired an even-par 72 to lead the 13th ranked Midwestern State Mustangs to the top of the leaderboard after the opening round of the Dana Rader Intercollegiate on Monday at the Ballentyne Resort.

Klutts sits in a first place tie with Lucia Careaga of Wingate (N.C.) on the 5,845-yard course

"She was in control of her game all day," said Coach Jeff Ray. "She missed only a couple of fairways and putted very, very well today."

The Mustangs placed all five players in the top 20 on their way to leading the tournament.

Brenna Moore is three strokes off the lead after a 3-over 75 in fifth, while Lauren Romines added a 4-over 76 to sit four off the pace in 12th.

Kendra Whittley carded a 5-over 77 to stand in 14th, with Lindsey Burkhart at 7-over 79 is in 20th.

"This is one of the best team rounds we've ever had," said Ray. "We positioned the ball well today and were very good on the fast greens. We played a good, smart game today."

"It's a very challenging golf course, not as tough as last week, but a strong, strong course."

Mustang Brittney Smith posted an 83 playing as an individual in the tournament.

The Mustangs have a five stroke Lander (S.C.) who stands at 305. Pfeiffer is third at 311, with Wingate fourth at 312 in the 15 team field.

The second round of the tournament is tomorrow in Charlotte.
