Emily White

Feb. 27, 2017

» Michigan posted an opening 290 team total to position itself tied for third with host Miami after the first 18 holes of the Hurricane Invitational.

» Playing the front nine five-under after three birdies and an eagle, Emily White led U-M in the opening round with a season-best 70 (-2), topping her prior best by two shots.

» After a strong drive on the par-5, 465-yard seventh hole, White used a 5-wood to make the green but watched her ball roll to a stop roughly 42 feet from the hole. She drained the lengthy left to right, downhill putt for eagle.

» Elodie Van Dievoet continued her strong spring play with an even-par 72 as she erased two bogeys with two birdies while adding 14 pars on the day.
