Golf: Freshman Mundy wins tournament

Comments () A Text Size

Georgina Mundy became the first North Texas freshman since 2001 to win an individual title as she captured the UALR Women’s Golf Classic on Tuesday in Hot Springs, Ark. Mundy won the event with a three-round score of 6-over 222.

Mundy ran away from the field, winning by five strokes as she is the first medalist winner for the North Texas women’s golf team since Kelsey Kipp won the Rose City Invitational in 2010.

Mundy shot a final-round 3-over 75 in the final round as she was the only player in the entire field to shoot 75 or under in all three rounds. She is just the third freshman in school history to win an individual title and first since Laura Rakel captured the Lady Eagle Invitational in 2001.

As a team, North Texas finished in a tie for seventh place with Missouri State. The Mean Green finished up the second and completed the entire third round on the day, shooting scores of 323 and 320. Sam Houston State captured the team title, beating Middle Tennessee by one stroke.

North Texas is back in action on April 5-7 as they play in the SMU Invitational.
