Ending on a High Note

Birdie-birdie-birdie finish gives CU's Hodgkins fourth-place showing at SMU tourney

by Gary Baines - 10/30/2018

University of Colorado golfer Kirsty Hodgkins birdied her final three holes on Tuesday to post the sixth top-five individual finish of her college career, but her first in over a year.

Hodgkins, a junior from Australia, shot an even-par 72 on Tuesday and rallied to place fourth in the SMU Trinity Forest Invitational in Dallas.

Hodgkins (pictured in a CU photo) checked in at 2-over-par 218, ending up four strokes behind individual champion Ellie Slama of Oregon State. She now owns a win, a second, three fourths and a fifth-place finish in her college career.

Despite missing junior Robyn Choi, who's competing at the LPGA Q-Series, CU placed a season-best fourth as a team on Tuesday. The Buffs ended up with a 32-over-par 896 total, which left them 24 strokes behind champion Illinois.

Freshman Kelsey Webster from Boulder made her collegiate debut while competing as an individual in Dallas. She tied for 49th place with a 234 total for three rounds.
