WILMINGTON, N.C. - Oklahoma State was declared champion of The Landfall Tradition women's golf tournament early Sunday after Hurricane Sandy dumped heavy rain overnight on the Country Club of Landfall's Jack Nicklaus course.
The 17 teams and five individuals enjoyed good weather during Friday's opening round before running into Sandy's rains and high winds on Saturday. The field completed 9-12 holes in difficult conditions and was hoping to complete the second round early Sunday, but conditions warranted otherwise.
As a result, OSU finishes with a 293 score, one stroke in front of Duke and two strokes ahead of Purdue and Texas Tech. It's the first Landfall title for the Cowgirls in the 11-year history of the event.
Texas Tech senior Kim Kaufman was the medalist with a 5-under-par 67 in the first round, matching the tournament record for opening round score.
OSU senior Kelsey Vines finished second after posting a 69.
Junior Jayde Panos' 72 tied her for 11th, while junior Josephine Janson tied for 31st place with a 75.
The 18-hole victory wrapped up the Cowgirls' fall slate. OSU will be back in action Feb. 11 at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif.
