SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Emmy Martin tied a TCU record for 54-hole score with a 210 to lead the Horned Frogs to a tie for second place after Tuesday's final round of the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

TCU's 4-under-par tournament score of 860 was one stroke shy of a school record 859 set at the 2008 Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. One day after a 6-under-par 282 for the third-best round in program history, the Horned Frogs were at even-par 288 in final-round play.

TCU tied Texas A&M for second place out of 14 teams. Arkansas captured the team championship.

Martin is one of four Horned Frogs to shoot a 210. However, she's the only one to do it twice. Her other time was at last year's Maryb S. Kauth Invitational. The most recent 210 had been by Clark at this year's season-opening Jim West Challenge.

Martin recorded her second career top-5 finish. Her fourth-place result was topped only by a tie for second at last year's Greenville Regional Preview. The senior from Odessa, Fla., birdied three of her opening four holes on the back nine Tuesday. She finished three strokes behind medalist Connie Jaffrey from Kansas State. Martin had a 7-under-par 65, tying for the second-best round all-time at TCU, Monday.

Clark tied for ninth with a 2-under 214. She totaled four birdies en route to a final round 1-under 71. The junior from Highlands, Texas, recorded her fifth career top-10 result.

Grace Do, the lone freshman in the lineup, had a career-low round with a 71, while her 54-hole score of 219 was also a personal-best. Additionally, her finish of a tie for 17th was a career-best. The Coppell, Texas, native had a team-best six birdies Tuesday, including a stretch of three consecutive and four out of five holes.

In her TCU debut, Greta Bruner tied for 21st after a final-round 73. Both her birdies came on consecutive holes on the front nine. She shot par on 13 holes.

Brooke McDougald recorded four birdies in posting a final-round 73.

Competing as an individual, Yeji Shin had a birdie in her 76.

"I am so proud of how hard these ladies have worked these past three weeks," TCU head women's golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said. "They earned this. It wasn't easy, but they did everything I asked. They played hard this week and never gave up! They came out with a winning mindset and committed to their process.

"A shout out to Brian Cain for teaching us to have a patient sense of urgency."

TCU will return to action Nov. 3 when it closes its fall season at the Battle at the Beach in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.
