On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Elm Park’s Anna Foster fired a career-low four-under par round of 68 to help the Auburn women’s golf team sign off on the Fall season in third place at The Ally at Old Waverly.

Having carded a then best three-under par round on Monday, Foster sandwiched a one-under par effort between rounds one and three, saving her best ‘til last with a five birdie final round haul that saw her take fifth place in the individual standings at eight-under par.

It’s the second straight top-10 finish for Foster who has now shot below par in seven straight rounds dating back to the Cougar Classic while in more good news for Ireland’s women golfers, teammate Julie McCarthy carded a season-low one-under par 71 for a tied-51st result as she continues to work her way back to form following a stop-start time triggered by injuries.

For the third straight day, Megan Schofill shot under par. However, on Wednesday, she was one of four Tigers to go low as Auburn carded a 9-under 279 as a team in the third round of The Ally.

“Extremely proud of our team today,” Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said. “They fought hard the entire round and really put the pedal down when they had the chance. All of our players have been working overtime on their wedge game and putting, and it showed this week. We had many more opportunities to score and converted a lot more birdies.

“Overall, it was a great way to finish the fall season and wonderful to have two players finish in the top five.”

Schofill was one of those players to finish in the top five as she fired a 71 (-1), her third straight round in the red, and ended up at 11-under for the tournament to place in a tie for third. The junior’s 54-hole score of 205 was second lowest in program history.

Alabama won the event at 22-under (842), followed by Florida (852), Auburn (853), Mississippi State (857), Texas AM (866), LSU (868), TCU (872), Arkansas (875), Kentucky (878), Vanderbilt (881), Tennessee (888) and Missouri (922).

The Ally at Old Waverly was the final tournament of the fall season for the Tigers who will return to the course in February for the UCF Challenge.
