FT. MYERS, Florida (10/27/09) - Janna Golden helped the Mean Green women's golf team rally for a fifth place finish and lowest three round score in school history at the FIU Pat Bradley Invitational by shooting a career-best round of 71 (-1) Tuesday afternoon at the Pelican Preserve & Country Club.
The Mean Green shot a three-round score of 890 for a solid finish to the fall season as they head into a four month break.
"This is a great way to end the fall," North Texas head coach Jeff Mitchell said. "Janna had her career best round today and Maggie beat her career round yesterday. And Jordan Rose has had a tremendous fall. This will give us a lot of energey as we take a break and then prepare for the spring."
Golden, along with fellow senior teammate Jordan Rose, tied for 12th place individually by shooting three- over-par (75). Both players closed the tournament strong by birdying the par-5 18th hole. Rose finished as the Mean Green's low-scorer for the second straight tournament by firing three straight rounds of 73.
As a team North Texas (+26) finished the day tied with Missouri State for fifth and 20 shots back of first-place Furman University (+6). Only Furman (292) had a better final round than North Texas' 295 on Tuesday.
Addison Long (T-40th, +12), Maggie Noel (T-42nd, +13) and Kelsey Kipp (T-62nd, +19) finished in that order for the Mean Green.
North Texas will not tee off again until Feb. 28 at Islander Spring Classic in Corpus Christi, Texas.
