Nadaline, Tilton close out rounds with birdies

FRANKLIN — Both Anderson's Morgan Nadaline and Pendleton Heights' Emily Tilton birdied their final hole at the IHSAA state golf tournament here Saturday and it lifted them both to a place in the state's elite.

Nadaline carded an even par 72 today in the final round of her prep career. That was the third-best round among today's 100 competitors on a soggy, poor draining course that was continually being peppered with rain throughout the round.

Nadaline's +3 to par for the tournament lifted her into a tie for fourth.

Tilton, a junior, shot a 79 Saturday to put her tournament total to +13. That placed her 28th among the 100 golfers, but it also put her 12th on the leaderboard among underclassmen.

Nadaline's final putt on No. 18 was from about 15 feet, left of the hole and nearly pin high, yet the putt was far from straight.

"I knew I had to have the right combination of speed and break," said Nadaline. "I wanted to sink that putt so bad. That was the way I wanted to end it." That was the way it ended.

There was no comparison between Friday's round and the one Saturday. "I putted so much better today," said Nadaline. "I had five birdies, but I had a double bogey and three bogeys. I could have shot a 68 today."

Each of her first three birdies were followed on the next hole by a bogey or double bogey. That string ended with a birdie on No. 16 and another at the final hole.

The reality of this being her final round still hadn't taken full effect on her about 20 minutes after her birdie putt. "At the end I was the only one that wasn't crying so I don't think it has sunk in yet," said Nadaline. "But it has been a good career. It was so much fun to play with that group of golfers today because we have grown up playing against one another."
