No. 3 Arkansas Stands in Sixth After One Round at Moon Golf Invitational

 MELBOURNE, Fla. – The No. 3 Arkansas women’s golf team is in sixth place after one round at the Moon Golf Invitational played at Suntree Country Club. The 17-team field got as many holes in as possible after its practice round due to impending inclement weather on Sunday, the original first day of the tournament, and was able to fit in all 18. The Hogs were in fourth entering the final 3-6 holes of the first round, but a pair of double bogeys and a bogey pulled Arkansas over par with a 1-over 289 after 18 holes. Arkansas is one stroke behind fifth-place Virginia Tech and seven off from Auburn, the leader after one round with a 6-under 282.

Maria José Marin leads the Hogs with a 2-under 70 for her 10th round at par/under in 12 rounds this season. José Marin logged three birdies, 14 pars and just one bogey on the day. She is in a tie for sixth, out of 90 golfers, standing four strokes behind the leader Maisie Filler from Florida, who fired off a 66 on Saturday.
