Lexington course gives golfers trouble

LEXINGTON—Hot, dry conditions gave way to a chilly wind at Lakeside Country Club on Friday as the Swede golfers battled not only new weather but also unfamiliar course obstacles.

Gothenburg combined for a team total of 423 to finish seventh in the slate of 10 schools at the Lexington Invite.

Mallory McCoy led the Swedes shooting 51 on the front nine and 52 on the back for a team-low 103. Heidi Teahon was close behind with 105 but both were outside the top 15 for medals.

“The girls played very well overall and seemed to hold their composure when finding themselves in trouble on the course,” said coach Tara Foster. “Several girls were faced with penalty strokes which impacted their individual scores.”

McCook took the top three individual spots as well as the team title carding a 350 total.

Kaylee Samway of McCook was the individual winner shooting 75.

“I would like to see the girls perform to their full potential and to focus on course management as we head into our home invite,” Foster said earlier this week.

The Swedes hosted the Gothenburg Invite on Tuesday and will play at Lexington again Friday in the Dawson County meet. Tee time is 1 p.m.
