Aubert's big day lifts Stanford women golfers into fourth

 

For Shannon Aubert, it must have felt a little like home. The Stanford freshman finished the Annika Intercollegiate in Kissimmee, FL with the best round of the day, shooting a 5-under 67 to move up eight spots and finish third in the individual tournament.

Aubert, who attended high school two hours away from the par-72 Watson Course, helped Stanford finish fourth as a team.

Aubert plays comfortably on golf courses around the world, an advantage of being born in France and living in seven other countries, including Switzerland. She's been a member of the French national team since 2009.

Recording a birdie on five of her first 10 holes Tuesday, Aubert improved six strokes from Monday. She finished with a 6-under 210, three strokes behind the medalist.

Mariah Stackhouse also recorded a top-10 finish, shooting rounds of 70, 72 and 72 for a 2-under 214, good for ninth.

The Cardinal shot the third-best score (285) on the final day of the tournament to move up a notch with its three-day total of 864. South Carolina won the title with an 854. Arizona followed at 861.

Casey Danielson shot even par to move into a tie for 29th place with teammate Lauren Kim, among others. Danielson and Kim each finished with a 4-over 220.

Freshman Calli Ringsby finished at 228.

Aubert brought some impressive credentials with her to Stanford and did not disappoint in Florida. She's a two-time Florida state champion, and a three-time All-American.
