Lady Bulldog Individual Championship Results

ATHENS, Ga. -- Lady Vol newcomers Mason Chen and Daeun Song made their UT debut Saturday at the Lady Bulldog Individual Championship.

Due to frost on the course in the morning, tee times were delayed by four hours and the day was shortened to 18 holes instead of back-to-back rounds.

Song finished in a tie for 16th at 7-over par (79), while Chen shot 12-over par 84 to come in a tie for 31st as the Tennessee duo got their first look at the course that is hosting the 2013 National Championship in May.

"Today was a great experience for Mason and Daeun on many levels," assistant coach Jan Dowling said. "They got to tee it up in a tournament early in the spring to knock the rust off, gain important knowledge on the 2013 NCAA championship golf course, and get a taste of division I college golf. Although they didn't finish the way they would have liked, they can take many positives away from today."

A total of 38 competitors from 13 different schools competed in the event.

Tennessee kicks off the spring season Feb. 15-17 in Tallahassee, Fla., at the Mash Up Invitational hosted by Florida State.
