LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Sophomore golfer Fanny Cnops (Gent, Belgium/K.A. Voskenslaan) posted the best 18-hole score of the 2012 Cardinal Cup, firing a 4-under 68 in round three Tuesday afternoon to move up four spots finishing in second place individually. Cnops recorded a 54-hole total of 2-under par 214 (73-73-68) to finish the tournament five shots behind Louisville's Emily Haas, who tallied a 7-under 209 (69-69-71) as the only two players under par for the event.
"Conditions were tough today and it is very impressive that Fanny was able to shoot a 68 in the windy conditions," head coach Sarah Sargent said. "She hung in there in less than ideal conditions and battled all round long. Turning in a round with four birdies and having no bogeys, is a great round today."
Cnops turned in the score of 68 with four birdies Tuesday afternoon, while posting 14 pars for her second-lowest score of her career. She tied the school-record for a single round, shooting a 5-under 67 at the Palmetto Intercollegiate (Oct. 24). The second place finish marks the fifth time in her young career she has posted a top-two finish winning the Palmetto Intercollegiate and Kiawah Island Intercollegiate last year while placing second at the Bryan National Collegiate and the Southern Conference championship.
