NIACC's Barragy opens with 100

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - NIACC freshman Jordyn Barragy shot a 52-48 - 100 on the first day of the NJCAA Division I national women's golf tournament at the LPGA International course on Tuesday.

Barragy played eight holes on Monday but the entire round was canceled because of inclement weather. The tournament was shortened from 72 holes to 54 holes.

"I thought Jordyn did a good job (Tuesday) of working hard to keep it together," NIACC coach Chris Frenz said. "She had some very unfortunate luck on a couple of holes that cost her strokes and when you make a mistake on a championship course, it makes you pay."

Frenz said Barragy's driver was the best club in her bag on Tuesday.

"She hit her driver very well (Tuesday)," the coach said. "She hit all the fairways on the back nine and all but two on the front.

"Her short game was a little off as the par threes got her."

Frenz said Barragy is looking forward to the second round of the now three-day tournament on Wednesday.

"Overall, she had two birdies (Tuesday)," Frenz said, "and she parred the last two holes to have a good feeling going into (Wednesday).

"She's not pleased with her score, but we have two more days to get better and I'm confident she will."
