Ducks Still Trying to Get on Track at NCAA Fall Preview
Sept. 25, 2001
AUBURN, Wash. - Playing through intermittent rain showers, the University of Oregon women's golf team shot a 40-over par 328 in the second round of the NCAA Fall Preview, being played at the 6,250-yard, par-72 Washington National Golf Club. The top nine teams in the tournament were unable to finish their rounds Tuesday as play was suspended at 5:42 p.m. due to rain and standing water on the greens.
Senior Kathy Cho shot an 8-over par 80 to lead the Ducks. The Honolulu, Hawaii, native is at plus-17 for the tournament. Freshman Jessica Carlyon shot an 11-over 83 and is plus-20. Freshman Jaime Seefried, who led Oregon with an opening round 79, struggled to an 88 Tuesday and fell to plus-23.
The Ducks are 76 strokes over par for the tournament, and have a five stroke edge on Washington State (plus-81) in a battle to stay out of the cellar entering Wednesday's final round.
Auburn and Tulsa took advantage of early tees time to post low rounds of 3-over 291 Tuesday. Auburn is the clubhouse leader at 15-over par, while Tulsa was a stoke back of the Tigers. Ohio State was a plus-13 through 12 holes at the time play was stopped, while first round leader Tennessee was 16-over through 12.
Weather permitting, the second round will be completed Wednesday morning with the nine teams set for a 7:15 a.m. tee time. The final round is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., though rain is in the forecast for the greater Seattle area.
