Stanford, Calif. – Furman's Laura Wearn shot a final round 73 to finish with a share of 30th place on Saturday in the NCAA Women's Golf West Regional at the par-71, 6,267-yard Stanford Golf Course.
Playing as an individual at the NCAA West Regional after receiving an at-large bid to the postseason, Wearn shook off bogeys on her first two holes to play the next 16 holes at even par to shoot two-over par. The senior, playing her final round as a Paladin, notched her lone birdie at No. 12 to finish in a three-way tie for 30th place at eight-over.
Wearn's scores of 74-74-73 helped her finish the 2012-13 season with a 73.4 stroke average over 31 rounds, which ranks as the best single season stroke average in Furman history.
