WEST POINT â€“ The Mississippi State women's golf team likes playing close to home.
That showed that this week.
The Bulldogs won the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational at their home course, Old Waverly, by 21 shots. MSU junior Ally McDonald shot a final round 5-under, 67 to finish with a 9-under, 207, and claimed first place by just one shot over freshman Jessica Peng.
"Our whole mentality is it doesn't matter where you are, it doesn't matter who is watching, or it doesn't matter what course we're playing," MSU coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. "What matters is your routine and your commitment to the process you're training in."
The Bulldogs finished with a 20-under, 844, a school record for the lowest in a tournament. The previous record was set in 1999 at the Lady Seminole Invitational. They shot an 11-under, 275 on Wednesday in the final round, also a school record.
It is the first win for the Bulldogs since the 2004 Wildcat Fall Invitational.Â
