Kentucky Women’s Golf Concludes Regular Season at Clemson Invitational

**Updated March 21 at 4:32 p.m. ET to reflect new start time because of weather. 

SUNSET, S.C. – The University of Kentucky women’s golf team will conclude the regular season at the Clemson Invitational at The Reserve at Lake Keowee at Sunset, South Carolina, this weekend, playing 54 holes Friday through Sunday. The Wildcats will tee off in a shotgun format Friday at 9 a.m. ET.

Sixteen teams are competing in the tournament, featuring five teams ranked in the Golfstat Top 25. Those teams include No. 5 LSU, No. 12 Ole Miss, No. 17 Texas A&M, No. 18 Clemson, No. 24 Vanderbilt, Augusta, Furman, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee, UNCW and Virginia Tech. 

Kentucky will use a new lineup to close out the regular season, including Laney Frye (70.9), Jensen Castle (73.0), Marissa Wenzler (73.0), Cathryn Brown (73.4) and Brooke Oberparleiter (77.0).  

The Wildcats are returning to South Carolina, just two weeks after playing in the fan-favorite Darius Rucker Intercollegiate on Hilton Head Island. There, the team went just 24-over across three days on the challenging course at Long Cover Golf Club to finish tied for 13th place. 

Wenzler, a graduate student from Dayton, Ohio, emerged as the team leader in the final round at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate for the first time this season. She formed a 2-under-par 69 and jumped 25 spots on the individual leaderboard to find 19th place, which marked her second straight – and her third overall – finish in the top 20 in 2023-24.  

Big Blue Nation will get to see its freshman duo compete in the same lineup for the first time this season in Brown and Oberpartleiter. Brown will be playing in the lineup for the third time this season, while Oberparleiter will be playing in the lineup for the fourth time. All of Brown’s appearances were this spring, while all of Oberparletier’s appearances were in the fall.  

Kentucky approaches the Clemson Invitational averaging a 290.5 stroke average through seven tournaments and 20 rounds. That stroke average is currently the third best in program history. 

The Wildcats can expect a chance of rain Friday and Saturday and sunny skies and 77 degrees for the final round Sunday.
