Britt Making Big Impression
Incoming freshman Jordan Britt is making a strong first impression to the start the summer. She finished second in the first flight of the Southern Women's Amateur before making a huge splash at the Tennessee Women's Amateur last week.
At the Southern Women's Am, Britt just missed qualifying for the championship flight with an off day of 83 at the Lookout Mountain Golf Club. She didn't miss a beat finishing second in the first flight winning matches over Elon's Meghan Green (3&2), Ole Miss' Rachel Ingram (1 up) and Georgia's Tess Fordham (3&2) before losing the final 1 up to Taylor Babcock (Barry).
Britt's qualifying score for the Tennessee Women's Am at Cleveland Golf & Country Club was a one-over par 73 which was the second low round and gave her the third seed in the match play tree. From there, Britt had an impressive run with wins over Tennessee Tech's Amanda Randolph (4&2), Ole Miss's Ingram (4&3) and Austin Peay incoming freshman Rachel Deaton (6&4) to get to the semifinals.
Her next opponent was the 38th-ranked player in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index in Virginia's Calle Nielson. Britt pushed her to the limit leading 2 up through 10. Nielson won holes 11 through 13 to take a 1 up lead. Britt's par at 17 squared the match which went to extra holes that ended after 20 holes when Nielson sunk a 25-foot birdie putt for the win.
