Clemson, S.C.—It was a blustery day at English Turn Golf and Country Club on Monday and the scores reflected it at the All-state Sugar Bowl Women’s Golf Tournament. Clemson was one of 14 teams that failed to break 300 as a team score as winds affected performances all day. Only five of the 90 players in the field broke par.

The 17-team field includes 10 of the top 25 teams in the nation. Clemson had a team score of 311 on Monday and stands at 35-over-par 611 entering Tuesday’s final round.     Clemson is in 14th place entering the final round, but stands just 10 shots out of eighth place.

Sydney Legacy led the way with a 77 on Monday as she shot a one-over-par 37 on the front nine, her second nine of the day. The senior from Lexington, SC stands at eight-over-par in 37th place entering the final round.

Alice Hewson is Clemson’s top golfer for the first 36 holes with a six-over-par count of 150 after rounds of 71 and 79. The junior All-ACC golfer stands in 26th place.

Ana Paula Valdes had a 78 on Monday, second best among the Tigers. Her round included a pair of birdies.   Marisa Messana had a second round 80 after an opening round 74 and freshman Callista Rice shot an 81
