In the final round of the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic, the Georgia women’s golf team went on to beat the Arkansas Razorbacks in the third-place match, 3-2, thanks to victories from the Bulldogs' three freshmen.
“It’s always good to get a win,” head coach Josh Brewer said. “To beat the defending SEC Champions is special. I think it’s massive. We’ve played well at times this year, but in this sport, you don’t always get rewarded with a win. We picked up two this weekend and were really close to a third. We’re going to use that to our advantage.”
Jo Hua Hung defeated All-American Dylan Kim, 4-and-3. Freshman Jenny Bae defeated Carla Gorlei, 2-and-1. The third Georgia freshman to win was Harmie Constantino, who beat Maria Hoyos, 1-up.
“We had a really great performance from Jo this week,” Brewer said. “She won all three matches and did so today in a dominating way over an All-American. Jenny picked up her first win in solid fashion, and Harmie won a great match too.”
South Carolina, who beat Georgia in Friday’s semifinals, took home the Liz Murphey team title after edging Augusta, 3-2.
