Vandy has better second day at Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Vanderbilt improved by 24 strokes Saturday in its second round at the Carmel Cup.

Vandy finished with a 368 total, 8-over-par, and found 13 birdies. Freshmen Lynn Lim and Tillie Claggett each had an eagle.

“I thought our young ladies showed great resiliency today and played the kind of golf that I thought we would see Friday,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said. “There were several ways they could have reacted after the round yesterday and I’m proud they chose to have a short memory and get back to work.”

Vanderbilt senior Celina Sattelkau (+2) finished with a flurry Saturday with back-to-back birdies to close her round. A 2-under-par 70 moved her into a tie for 12th overall.

Lim recovered from three bogeys on her front nine thanks an eagle on 11 and birdie on 18. Her second-round 71 moved her into a tie for 17th overall at 4-over-par.

Virginie Ding (+11) also rebounded Saturday by shooting a 74 and is tied for 40th along with Claggett (+11) who had a second-round 76. Natasha Kiel (+13) is 45th overall while Tess Davenport (+16) is 47th.

Vanderbilt, in eighth place overall, is scheduled to tee off at 8:15 a.m. CT Sunday alongside Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Live scoring for Sunday’s final round can be found HERE.
