SAN ANTONIO – Freshman Kayley Marschke recorded her best round as an Auburn women’s golfer, helping the Tigers equal their low round of the season Monday in the second round of the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

Marschke recorded six birdies en route to a 3-under-par 69 to move into a tie for sixth place in the individual standings at 2-under. She bettered her previous low round by two strokes, her previous best coming in the final round at the Pinehurst Challenge two weeks ago. After opening with a bogey, Marschke made three birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 2-under, then carded three birdies along with two bogeys on the back for her low round of the year.

As a team, Auburn shot a 4-under-par 284 – equaling their opening round at the Cougar Classic – for the best team total of the season. At 1-under through two rounds, the Tigers moved up one spot to fourth place, one shot ahead of first-round leader Mississippi State. The Tigers are five shots back of Texas A&M and Tennessee, who are tied for second at 6-under. Arkansas leads the tournament at 14-under.

Junior Michaela Owen made her way into red figures Monday with a 2-under-par 70, her sixth round of the year at even par or better. She posted four birdies along with two bogeys to move to 1-under for the tournament and into a tie for 11th place. Fellow junior Kelli Murphy also remained in the top-20, posting a 1-over-par 73 Monday to move back to even par for the tournament and a tie for 14th place. Freshman Elena Hualde recorded an even-par 72 and is tied for 27th at 2-over through two rounds.

Tuesday’s final round gets underway with a shotgun start at 8:45 a.m. Auburn will be paired with Mississippi State and TCU. Live scoring is available at golfstat.com, and fans can follow @AuburnWGolf on Twitter and Instagram for updates throughout the day.
