With her dream of a national championship dashed,
University of Houston-Victoria’s Heather Shake posted a second
round 81 on Wednesday at the NAIA Women’s Golf National Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Shake posted an opening round 78 on Tuesday and was seven shots back of the tournament leader when she was later disqualified for using a non-conforming club during her round.
Shake and UHV head coach Brian Williamson put in a written appeal of the disqualification, bit the appeal was denied.
Still able to compete in the next two rounds but unable to place in the event, the freshman from Pearland turned in a second round that included one birdie and 8 pars for a 9-over 81.
Shake went out at 5-over 41 with three bogeys and a double bogey, along with five pars, before coming in at 4-over 40. Her back-9 included three pars, a birdie and five bogeys.
Daniela Martinez of Northwood (TX) is the individual leader at 2-over 146 after posting rounds of 72-74. She has a one-shot lead over Elia Foch of Oklahoma City and Alazne Urizar of SCAD Savannah.
SCAD Savannah currently holds a three-shot lead over defending national champion Oklahoma City in the team race after the first two rounds. SCAD Savannah has posted a pair of 304s and is in at 608, while Oklahoma City is in at 611 after rounds of 302-309.
