Estes Wins in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, SC - Hollins University Golf at Myrtle Beach Shootout hosted by McDaniel College, March 19, 2013

Final Results

Fresh off the heels of a solid showing at the Jekyll Island Collegiate, the Hollins golf team made a stop in Myrtle Beach to compete in a tri-match.  The Myrtle Beach Shootout, hosted by McDaniel College, was played at the Barefoot Golf Resort.  Hollins took on McDaniel and Wellesley on the par 72, 5820 yard Fazio course.

Hollins topped host McDaniel but finished second in the event, trailing Wellesley by five strokes at days end.

Shelby Estes (Mt. Crawford, VA) fired a three over par 75 to win the event by 11 strokes.  Estes was the only player in the field of 15 to break 80.  Elizabeth Cheng (Virginia Beach, VA) came in third as one of only three players to break 90 on the afternoon.  Cheng came into the event ranked second in the nation, as ranked by Golfstat, after winning the Jekyll Island Collegiate earlier in the week.  Sydney Patrick (Flower Mound, TX) rounded out a trio of Hollins golfers to finish in the top 10.

Hollins will be back in the state to face ODAC competition over the weekend when they play in the Randolph-Macon Spring Invitational.  The two day event will be held at The Hollow Golf Club in Montpelier, VA.
