GAINESVILLE, Fla. – UCF women’s golfer Pimpisa “Sandwich” Sisutham won the Gators Invitational for the second consecutive year to lead the No. 16 Knights to a fifth-place finish at Mark Bostick Golf Course. 

UCF finished fifth with a tournament score of 855 (+15), marking the sixth top-five finish this season. Arizona took first place and Clemson was tabbed runner-up. 

Sisutham led the field heading into the final round as Arizona’s Pimmada Wongthanavimok turned in a four-under performance in round three to tie for first with Sisutham, making them co-champions as both coaches decided to forgo a playoff. 

Just like round one, Sisutham carded five birdies. The Thailand native tallied 11 birdies throughout the two-day tournament, where she was second best as Michigan’s Hailey Borja recorded 12. 

Jess Baker finished the tournament tied for 28th carding a 70 (E), her best score of the tournament. She ended with a three-round score of 215. Brittany Shin finished just behind Baker, tied for 32nd place with a final score of 217. 

Molly Smith saved her best performance for round three with a 72 (+2) to end with a 219 (+9). Smith ended the invitational tied for 38th place.

Katie Poots rounded out the lineup carding a 238 in the two-day tournament. 

UCF will leave the Sunshine State for the first time this spring season to head to Charleston, South Carolina, for the Briar’s Creek Invitational March 11-12.
