Curtis Cup player Alice Hewson sets Clemson 

scoring record in Schooner Fall Classic

Clemson, South Carolina — English second-year student Alice Hewson set a Clemson University scoring record for 54 holes with rounds of 66, 70 and 67  over the par-71 course and led Clemson to a third-place team finish at the Schooner Fall Classic at the weekend.  
The two-day tournament concluded on Sunday afternoon at the par 71 Belmar Country Club in Norman, Oklahome.  It was the first tournament for new Clemson coach Kelley Hester. 
GB and I Curtis Cup player Hewson from Berkhamsted, England shot a four-under-par 67 on Sunday to finish with a 54-hole score of 203, 10-under-par.  
Her performance broke the Clemson record for total score and score vs. par that had been established by Ashlan Ramsey at the 2013 Ruth’s Chris Intercollegiate in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Ramsey had shot a nine under par 207 at that event on a par 72 course to set the marks for total score and score versus par.
Hewson, a sophomore student, finished second to  Morgane Metraux of Florida State, who finished with a 12-under-par score of 201.  Hewson had scores of 66-70-67. 
Alice's 66 in the first round was the second best 18-hole score in Clemson University women's golf history.  The only score better is her 65 last year at the Cougar Classic in Charleston.
"The course played like a totally different layout today with different winds," said Hester.   "The girls adjusted well. We beat some good team and we are off to a great start.  Alice Hewson was very solid and played well down the stretch.  She gave herself a chance to win."
Florida State won the team competition with an 829 score, 23-under-par.  Alabama, ranked No. 1 in the nation by Golfweek, finished second at 841.  Clemson was third at  849, three shots ahead of host school Oklahoma.  Kent State, ranked fourth in the nation by Golfweek, finished fifth at 858.
Clemson had a team score of one-under-par 283 on Sunday.
