THE WOODLANDS, Texas
-- TCU junior Annika Clark
carded a career-low 68 and tied a school record with a 54-hole score of 210 to lead the Horned Frogs to a seventh-place finish after Tuesday's final round of the Jim West Challenge.
TCU's 54-hole 865 tied for third-best in program history, six strokes behind a record 859 at the 2008 Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. The Horned Frogs' 287 tied for their sixth-best round.
HORNED FROG OF THE DAY
Clark's 3 under par bettered her previous career-best 69 set on three occasions. The junior from Highlands, Texas, birdied four of her opening eight holes and finished with a team-best five birdies on the day. She tied for 12th with her career low 3-under 210.
"I felt solid both days, but today I was definitely putting the ball a lot better," Clark said. "I dropped a few lengthy putts, which is always a confidence booster. My ball striking was spot on both days. I'm super excited that I got to start my season this way!"
