“Home sweet home” was not so sweet for the Western women’s golf team Sunday.

The Griffons currently sit in 4th place after day 1 of their own MWSU Spring Invitational at the St. Joseph Country Club.  As a team, Western finished with a round one total of 350, 33 strokes behind the leader, Central Oklahoma.

Natalie Bird overcame early struggles to shoot a team-low 83 for Western.  She sits in 8th place individually.  Northwest’s Steph Charteris holds the top spot indivually, with a 77.

Western’s Lauryn Huske Davies, playing as an individual, had the Griffons’ second best score with an 87.

Kristen Cooley and Casi Webb shot 88 and 89 respectively for Western.

Webb summed up her team’s play by describing her own performance on the home course, which didn’t allow the Griffons a home course advantage Sunday.

“We do know the course the best,” Webb explained.  “But we also know how hard this course can be, especially hitting out of the rough, which is what I’ve been doing (Sunday.)”

The MWSU Spring Invitational concludes Monday at the St. Joseph Country Club with a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start.
