Former Fort Payne Lady Wildcat and current Birmingham-Southern sophomore golfer Alexis Chambers wrapped up her season on a high point back in April with a pair of top-10 individual finishes in the Lady Panthers’ last two tournaments of the school year.
Chambers bounced back from a slow start in the fall season where she had one top-20 finish in four tournament appearances.
That top finish for Chambers in the fall came in the Chick-fil-A Collegiate Invitational at the Coosa Country Club in Rome, Georgia.
The 2-round tournament saw Chambers threaten for the lead at the end of the first day of play. Her first-round score of 76 (+4) had her tied for fourth in a 79-player field and she entered her final round trailing the tournament leader by just three strokes.
Chambers wrapped up the tournament with a round of 84 (+12) and finished tied for 17th. Her 22 pars ranked third among all players in the tournament.
After two more rough outings in March to start the spring season, Chambers put together some of her best rounds in her collegiate career thus far to finish in the top 10 individually in the BSC Southern Shootout and the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) Conference Tournament.
In the BSC Southern Shootout at Bent Brook Golf Course in Bessemer, Chambers stayed in the top 10 of the 61-player field throughout her two rounds of play. She carded a 75 (+3) in her first round, which left her tied for third and two strokes behind the leader. Chambers then followed with an 80 (+8) in her final round. Her total score of 155 was the best among her BSC teammates and tied for seventh in the tournament. Her best work came on shorter holes as Chambers shot 1-over on par 3’s and shot 6-over on par 4’s. Her 26 pars led all players.
Two weeks later, Chambers kept that momentum rolling through the SAA Conference Tournament at Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tennessee.
The 3-round tournament saw Chambers stumble a bit with an 83 (+10) in her first round, but she bounced back in a big way with back-to-back rounds of 76 (+3) to close out the tournament. Those last two rounds allowed Chambers to climb up the leaderboard for a fifth-place finish and also earned her SAA First Team All-Conference Tournament honors.
