Golf: Carr leads team in final round of SEC tourney

April 19, 2010 

At Tuscaloosa, Ala., senior Corrine Carr shot the best round of her collegiate career with a bogey-free, 4-under 67 on Sunday to lead USC in the final round of the SEC women’s championship at NorthRiver Yacht Club.

The Gamecocks shot 4-over 288 on the day to finish in seventh place at 15-over 867 overall.

The Gamecocks’ team score of 288 was its second time in three rounds to shoot their best team total of the year and ties for the fourth-lowest score in team history, equaling a second-round effort in the 2006 Dick McGuire Intercollegiate.

Alabama, playing as the tournament host, won its first SEC title. Vanderbilt’s Marina Alex defeated Tennessee’s Erica Popson in a two-hole playoff for tournament medalist honors as both finished at 5-under 208.
