She tied for second at The Dickson, playing a career-low round of three-under par, 69, at the rain-shortened event, and placed seventh at the 3M Augusta Invitational with a career-low, 54-hole score of two-under par, 214. Farah has scored inside the individual top 20 in four of her last five events, dating to the Landfall Tradition in the fall.

THE COURSE: The Reserve at Lake Keowee
The Reserve at Lake Keowee is set to play par-72, 6,260 yards this weekend and has proven an outstanding course over the first two editions of the Clemson Invitational. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the course is one of the most popular in South Carolina, and has played host to the Tigers’ event in each of the last two springs.

The Boilermakers make their first-ever appearance at the Clemson Invitational. The first two editions of the event have been won by Florida (2016) and Florida State (2017), with the Seminoles shooting a winning score of 10-under par, 854, last season. The individual medalist in each season posted outstanding scores as Michigan State’s Katie Sharp won in 2016 at eight-under 208, and Florida State’s Matilda Castren won last year at nine-under 207.
