Lauren Hartlage had a late day surge to move into a tie for second in the NCAA Golf Championships in Scottsdale Arizona.
In the first round, on Friday, Hartlage shot a one over par at the Grayhawk Golf Club, which was good for 19th place after the round. The senior lit the course on fire with a round of four under to move into a tie for second.
Hartlage started play on the 10th hole recording pars on every hole until she circled all the way around to the fourth hole. With birdies on holes four, five, seven, and eight, she recorded the third best round of the day at four under. She is still five strokes behind Rachel Heck of Stanford in first place, but there are still two rounds to play.
After today's third round, the top 15 teams, and the top nine individuals not on an advancing team will play the final round on Monday. Hartlage has obviously placed herself in a position to reach Monday's play and take a shot at the individual championship. We wish her smoothing putting and long drives !

We should be back next week better than ever. Will we see the return of the quiz next week? It's about time for it.
