PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Vanderbilt improved by 24 strokes on Saturday in his second round at the Carmel Cup.
Vandy finished with a total of 368, 8 over par, and found 13 birdies. Freshmen Lynn Lim and Tillie Claggett each had an eagle.
“I think our young girls showed great resilience today and played the kind of golf I expected to see on Friday,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said. “They could have reacted in a number of ways after yesterday’s round and I’m proud that they chose to have a short memory and get back to work.”
Vanderbilt senior Celina Sattelkau (+2) finished in a flurry on Saturday with back-to-back birdies to close out her round. A 2-under 70 tied for 12th.
Lim recovered from three bogeys of her first nine thanks to an eagle at 11 and a birdie at 18. Her second-round 71 lifted her into a tie for 17th overall at 4 over par.
Virginia Ding (+11) also rebounded on Saturday shooting a 74 and is tied for 40th with Claggett (+11) who had a 76 in the second round. Natasha Kiel (+13) is 45th overall while Tess Davenport (+16) is 47th.
