http://www.rolltide.com/sports/w-gol...052212aaa.htmlhe Alabama women's golf team has the first-round lead at the 2012 NCAA Women's Golf Championships at 2-under-par 286 on the par-72, 6,377-yard North Course at the Vanderbilt Legends Club. "It was a nice start to the tournament," Alabama head coach Mic Potter said. "You can lose today, but you can't win. You have to keep yourself in position. I like the fact that we played late today and early tomorrow, and we can come back and keep our momentum going.
"It is all about positioning right now - there is a lot of golf to be played. It is as much endurance, patience and staying calm as it is anything."
In the team race, Virginia is second place at even-par 288, after an incorrect scorecard cost the Cavaliers six shots almost three hours after they completed their round. Duke is in third at 1-over 289 with North Carolina fourth (292) and Arizona State and UCLA tied for fifth at 5-over 293.
Great job by the lady linksters. The men's golf is next week (I think) and we should be one of the favorites in that tournament. With those and softball, we could have as many as five national championships for the year.
Elsewhere in the SEC, Florida won the NCAA women's tennis crown. They also won men's indoor track. So with those two, Kentucky basketball and our football and women's gymnastics, the SEC already has fie national championships in the bag this year. With the golfs, baseball, softball and outdoor track, the league could win as many as 11 national titles overall.
SEC!!! SEC!!! SEC!!!
