Despite wind; women's golf leads tournament

In its final regular season tournament, women’s golf leads the windy 31st Susie Maxwell Berning Classic with a two round total of 629. The Sooners lead Oral Roberts by four strokes going into Monday’s third and final round.

 After round one, second place OU trailed the University of Texas-El Paso by just one stroke, recording a 315 (+27). UTEP fell to 5th after the second round, now trailing OU’s pace by six strokes.

 OU has had success on the individual side as well, as sophomore Ellen Mueller is tied for first with a two-round total of 151. Along with University of Arkansas-Little Rock’s Sara Wikstrom, Mueller leads OU Senior Kendall Dye by just one stroke. Dye and the rest of the golfers braved the elements, which involved heavy winds in the Norman area.

It was tough, but it was tough for everyone out there,”  Dye said.  “We spent the last week playing out there with the north and the south winds and even in the cold when we didn’t want to be playing in that."

The tournament, which is being held at OU’s Jimmie Austin Golf Club, will begin it’s final round Monday, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
