BRADENTON, FLA. -- Furman's Taylor Totland shot a 75 on Sunday to conclude play at the 2015 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships at the par 72, 6,468 yard The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla.  

After completing the second round Sunday morning, Totland, a sophomore from Tinton Falls, N.J., teed off of No. 10 in the third round Sunday afternoon and notched back-to-back birdies on No. 11 and No. 12.  After an hour delay due to lightning just six holes into the round, Totland made the turn at two-under.  Despite struggling on No. 2, she recovered and birdied No. 5, finishing the third round at three-over.

"While Taylor did not play as well at the NCAA Finals as she would have liked, she had a great year,"  said Furman head coach Kelley Hester at the conclusion of the round.  "We are proud of her accomplishments and know that she learned a ton at this year's championships that will pay dividends down the road."

Sunday's afternoon round was suspended at 8:21 p.m. due to lightning and will resume at 7:30 a.m. on Monday.  The top 15 teams and top nine individuals not on an advancing team will begin the final round of stroke play Monday at 10:50 a.m. 

Emma Talley (E) of Alabama leads the field by one stroke after firing an opening-round 70 and adding a 73 in each of the next two rounds.  In the team competition, top-ranked Southern California (+28) holds a three-stroke lead with three holes remaining in the round.  Fourth-ranked Duke (+31) is in second place, while No. 5 Arizona (+41) moved up into third.
