Texas Tech Golfer Kim Kaufman Takes Individual Title at Landfall Tradition
A Texas Tech golfer has earned an individual title, following the cancellation of the last rounds of a tournament.
Kim Kaufman took her first individual title, after thunderstorms from Hurricane Sandy caused the second and final rounds of the Landfall Tradition in Wilmington, North Carolina to be canceled over the weekend.
Kaufman had previously finished as the tournament runner-up three times in her career.
The tournament used the first round scores, where Kaufman hit a tournament-best 5-under 67 to help lead the Lady Raiders into a tie for third overall.
“We are extremely happy for Kim, who has continued her great play and got her first college win this weekend,” said Tech head coach JoJo Robertson. “The weather was not ideal, which makes Kim’s 67 even more impressive.”
Oklahoma State took the team title, after the Cowgirls totaled a 4-over 292 first round, just one stroke better than second-place Duke, and two better than the Lady Raiders and Purdue.
Tech will open their spring season on February 10th through the 12th, as the Lady Raiders will play in the Lady Puerto Rico Classic in San Juan.
