Georgia State Opens Spring at Amelia Island Collegiate Monday

The Georgia State women’s golf team will open the spring season on Monday for the fifth-straight season at the Amelia Island Collegiate at Amelia National Golf Club in Fernandina Beach, Fla.

This will mark the first of four regular season spring events leading up to the Sun Belt Conference championship in April.

 

Last year the Panthers earned a fourth-place finish among 16 teams as Harmanprit Kaur finished in third place to lead Georgia State. Chloe Howard earned a seventh-place finish in 2018.

“We are so incredibly excited to start our spring season,” head coach Jessica Steward said. “We are traveling with a really strong lineup featuring some of our key players from the fall semester, along with a new addition in Kelly Strickland. I feel really good about this squad and I’m looking forward to watching these players have a great weekend.”

The 15-team field will play a practice round on Sunday, before playing 36 holes in a shotgun start on Monday morning beginning at 8 a.m. The final round is set for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.

The field will include host Jacksonville, Bethune-Cookman, Cincinnati, FIU, FGCU, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Jacksonville State, Lipscomb, North Florida, Samford, Stetson, Troy, Western Kentucky, and Winthrop.

This week’s line-up will include senior Harmanprit Kaur, junior Chloe Howard, sophomore Emma Berlin, along with freshmen Jenny Marston and Kelly Strickland.

Berlin led the Panthers in the fall with a 74.67 scoring average including five rounds of par or better while recording a pair of top 25 results. Marston was second on the team with a 74.89 scoring average in her first semester with the Panthers. Strickland transferred to Georgia State in December from Kansas.

Live scoring of all three rounds can be found at GolfStat.com. Fans can follow the team on twitter @GSU_WGolf.

Following this week’s tournament, Georgia State will travel to Wallace, N.C., for the River Landing Classic March 9-10.
