Lion Women’s Golf takes seventh at ULM Invitational.

MONROE, La. – Michelle Becker carded a top 20 finish for the Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s golf team at the ULM Invitational on Tuesday at Bayou Desiard Country Club. 

“Our seventh-place finish may not seem like a win, but compared to the highly competitive field, we played well. We were hoping to move into sixth place today and just let some bad putts get in the way of that goal, unfortunately,” said coach Lise Malherbe. 

Becker (San Antonio – Reagan) shot a 76 in the final round for a total score of 227 (77-74-76), tying for 19th place. Henriette Stranda (Kraakstad, Norway) tied for 24th place with a score of 230 (76-76-78), while Benz Far-Arun (Bangkok, Thailand) finished a stroke behind and placed 28th with a score of 231 (74-79-78). 

“I am proud of Michelle for her top 20 finish in some very tough conditions today with unpredictable gusts,” added Malherbe. 

Marie Naeher (Neuenbuerg, Germany) posted a score of 235 (80-77-78) to tie for 37th place, and Jordan Dusckas (Flower Mound Marcus) placed 45th with a score of 240 (84-75-81). 

ULM won its home tournament with a score of 880, 13 strokes better than Sam Houston. The Warhawks’ Alessia Mengoni won the individual title by one stroke, scoring 216 over HCU’s Elise Parel. 

Malherbe, “We’re excited to tee it up again next week and continue to work towards conference championships in just a couple weeks.”
