Golfers place in top 10 in Big South tournament

Longwood’s men’s and women’s golf teams both placed golfers inside the top 10 at the Big South Championships to earn a pair of matching sixth-place team finishes.

Men’s freshman Jordan Boulton ’19, a business major from Mansfield, England, posted back-to-back under-par rounds to place fifth in the 50-player field at The Patriot in Ninety Six, South Carolina, and led the Lancers to the best Big South finish in program history. Longwood had never finished higher than ninth place at the event, but Boulton, a Big South All-Freshman Team and All- Tournament Team pick, carded a 73-70-71— 214 (-2) to lead Longwood to a +21 for the three-day tournament.

On the women’s side, Courtney Tolton ’17, a business major from Mitchell, Ontario, capped her breakout season with a 10th-place finish out of 44 golfers at the DeBordieu Club in Georgetown, South Carolina. Her 78-80- 71—229 (+13) gave her the second-best Big South Championship finish of any Longwood golfer since the Lancers joined the conference in 2012-13.
