Rose shot 5-over par Saturday to lead the Wildcats. The Nicholasville, Ky., native carded two birdies on the day and was just 1-over par on her second nine. At 11-over par overall, Rose is tied for 59th.
Junior Jordan Chael matched her first-round score with another 78 Saturday, which included a pair of birdies. She’s in a tie for 66th at 12-over par.
Senior Cylia Damerau, who shot a 2-over-par 74 Friday, slid back Saturday with an 87. The Switzerland native is in a tie for 84th. Freshman Anna Hack, at 18-over par, is tied for 90th.
Sophomore Isabelle Johansson was poised for her fourth straight top-50 finish to start the season but was disqualified for incorrectly signing her scorecard. Johansson, who has led Kentucky in stroke average this fall, is disqualified individually for the rest of the tournament but her Sunday round can count towards the team score in the final round.
The Landfall Tradition marks the final tournament of the fall for the Wildcats, who have not shied away from playing the best teams in the country to start the season. The Landfall Tradition has been no different for UK with 12 of the teams in the field ranked in Golfstat’s top-50 rankings, including five in the top 25 and two in the top 10.
This weekend’s tournament is being held at the Pete Dye Course at the Country Club of Landfall, located in Wilmington. Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, the rolling layout of the Dye Course is playing at par 72, 6,157 yards. The Dye Course was the host site of the NCAA Division I Women’s Collegiate Championship for the second time in 2010 after hosting previously in 1995.
