Incoming Auburn freshman Kelli Murphy used a hole-in-one on the 15th hole of her final round to propel her to a tie for seventh place at the TRANS Amateur Championship this week in Elgin, South Carolina.

Playing in her hometown, Murphy posted rounds of 73-73-71-78=295 (+7) at The Members Club at Woodcreek just outside Columbia. Despite a tough final round, her ace at the par 3, 160-yard 15th hole helped salvage the day and secure a top-10 finish.
