Women's Golf heads to ASUN Championship

BRASELTON, Ga. – The Lipscomb women’s golf team heads travels to the Peach State on Sunday for the 29th Edition of the ASUN Conference Championship at the Legends Course at Chateau Elan in Braselton, Georgia.

For the second straight season, the championship will be a 54-hole event with one round tentatively being played each day Sunday through Tuesday. Inclement weather in the area could cause a change in schedule.

“This is crunch time for us, this is what we’ve prepared for all season,” Lipscomb head coach Jesse Lawley said. “All the sweat and hard work we’ve put in really shows up in this event. I am looking forward to ending this season on a high note and then continuing to build this program to where we want to go.”

Lipscomb is set to begin teeing off at 7:30 a.m. on the par-73 Legends track that covers 5,893 yards.

The Purple and Gold’s highest finish in the championship came in 2015 and 2016 when they finished sixth.
