Melanie Walker

Sophomore Melanie Walker led the University of Missouri women’s golf program through 36 holes of action on Monday at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at the University of Georgia.

On a day when only one of the 17 schools finished under par, Walker led Mizzou and is in 35th place of 90 golfers with a 149 after two rounds of play (77-72). After a tough opening round for the field, Walker led the way with an even-par 72 during the second 18 holes of play with three birdies to her name.

Walker was followed by Ffion Tynan (75-76), Fleur van Beek (80-74), Addie Dobson (74-82) and Winnie Ng (83-78).

As a team, the Tigers sit in 15th place in a field that includes five teams ranked among the top 25 nationally.

Day two is set to begin at 9 a.m. CT for Mizzou.
