GATORS FINISH FOURTH AT WINDY CITY CLASSIC

Evanston, Ill. – The University of Florida women’s golf team competed in the final round of the Windy City Classic in Evanston, Ill. on Tuesday. The Gators posted the second-best round of the day (287) to finish the tournament in fourth place.

Freshman Marta Perez recorded four birdies in her final round to finish in a tie for seventh, the best finish of her freshman season. The -3 (213) Perez fired for the tournament is her lowest 54-hole score of the year. Senior Kelly Grassel shot -2 (70) in her final round to finish the tournament in a tie for 20th. All five Gators finished in the top-25.

Georgia took home the title at the Windy City Classic shooting -10 (854), and Stanford’s Andrea Lee was the individual winner at -10 (206).

Head Coach Emily Glaser:

On the Gators’ finish at the Windy City Classic:

“I’m happy for the team to post one of the lower rounds of the day. We had a slow start, but we played really solid through the middle of the round. We always want to win, and we are not satisfied with fourth.  But it sure is exciting to see this team in action. They are so very talented. We have a lot of exciting times ahead of us.”
