The Florida women's golf team took a disappointing seventh place finish at the Mercedes-Benz Women's Collegiate Championship at the Fox Den Country Club in Knoxville, Tenn.
UF, who had been tied for fifth after 36 holes, carded a total team score of 38 over (304-295-303, 902).
"I think we got off to a pretty good start today and obviously we made up some ground yesterday in our round, we're really trying to capitalize on that and we got off to a great start this morning," coach Jan Dowling said. "Then we kind of got into some trouble and we never really recovered as a team from that. We made some double bogeys … and struggled with our putting, that's really what happened."
Freshman Isabelle Lendl led Florida for the three rounds of the tournament.
" [Lendl] did great we are proud of her sticking in there and finishing well," sophomore Evan Jensen said. "She stayed patient and she was there for us."
Lendl totaled a 54-hole score of 219 (74-72-73, +3) and tied for eighth, her first top-10 finish to date.
Junior Jessica Yadloczky finished the tournament just as she did in 2007 with a 15th-place finish.
On Saturday, Yadloczky ended just one stroke behind her younger teammate, Lendl, finishing her second round with a one-over 73. On her first hole of her second 18, Yadloczky started strong with a birdie but went on to make two consecutive bogeys and a third on her seventh hole.
The two-time All-SEC selection was not done fighting and went on to make ten straight pars followed by a birdie on the final hole. She carded a 7-over 223 (74-73-76, +7).
After a less than perfect first two rounds, Jensen redeemed herself in the final round on the green. She totaled 227 (78-75-74, +11) and tied for 29th.
Jensen tallied eight birdies this weekend; more than any of her other teammates.
Freshman Mia Piccio finished Saturday with a tie for 47th, dropped to 66th for a three round score of 234 (79-75-80, +18).
Rounding out Florida's line up, sophomore Andrea Watts finished the lowest of the Florida competitors, coming in a tie for 85th with a 243 (78-82-83, +27).
Tennessee, the tournament's host, finished in first place with a total score of 868 and had three golfers finish in the top-10.
"We are all pretty disappointed just because we feel like we could have really done something," Jensen said.
