Sports Briefs: Tubert tumbles in third round

Tubert suffers a tough third round

Dreams of a first Ladies Professional Golf Assn. tour victory soured for Burroughs High alumna Emily Tubert on Saturday afternoon at the McKayson New Zealand Women's Open in Auckland.


Tubert entered Saturday tied for second with a nine-under-par 135 after the first two rounds, but struggled in the third round and finished with a five-over 77 to finish four-under and drop into a five-way tie for 44th.

Through the first two rounds, Tubert finished with four bogeys. In Saturday's third round, though, she finished with seven bogeys, including three straight on the 16th, 17th and 18th holes.


Auckland is 20 hours ahead of local time, so Tubert played six holes on Sunday's final round, shooting one over before play was stopped due to unplayable course conditions. Play has been suspended with a start time for the final round still not set.

Tubert is hoping to top her previous best of tying for 41st.
