RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Alabama junior Stephanie Meadow not only made the cut in this weekend's Kraft Nabisco Championship, but posted a 1-over-par 289, to finish 47th at the Mission Hills Country Club.
Meadow, who hails from Jordanstown, Northern Ireland, won last summer's Ladies British Amateur, which earned her exemptions into the U.S. Women's Open and the Ricoh Women's British Open. She was unable to play the Women's British Open due to her World Amateur schedule and travel, but was able to tee it up this weekend in California.
She carded back-to-back rounds of 73 to make the cut on Friday before posting a 1-under 71 on Saturday. Meadow closed with a 1-over 73 in the final round on Sunday. Her father, Robert, caddied for her during the 72-hole event.
Meadow actually got off to a difficult start in her 1-under third round with four bogeys in the first seven holes, but responded with five birdies in the last 10 holes.
Meadow rejoins her Alabama teammates this weekend for the PING/ASU Invitational at the ASU Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz.
