KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Led by freshman Marci Turner (Tompkinsville, Ky.), the No. 12 Tennessee Lady Vol golf team is in first place after day one of the Landfall Tradition concluded Friday afternoon. The Kentucky native fired the program's best-ever opening round with a five-under par 67 to help Head Coach Judi's Pavon squad to a team total of 291. UT leads the tournament by three strokes over South Florida, while Turner has a two-shot lead over Vanderbilt's Chris Brady in the chase for medalist honors.

Turner's round established a tournament record and ties as the lowest-ever by a freshman in UT history. It also ties as the third-lowest score in the annals of Big Orange golf. Golda Johansson (Lund, Sweden) also shot a solid round of golf, firing an even-par 72 to sit in a tie for sixth place. The 72 is the Sweden native's second-best effort to open a tournament in her career. 2004 Mercedes-Benz Champion Violeta Retamoza (Aguascalientes, Mexico) and sophomore Holly Cantwell (Morristown, Tenn.) both finished with scores of 76 and sit tied for 28th place. Captain Jessica Shepley (Oakville, Ontario) carded a 78 on the day and is tied for 44th.

The second round of the Landfall Tradition will begin Saturday morning at 9:15 a.m., with the Lady Vols set to tee-off at 11:30 a.m.
