UCLA Third after Day Two at NCAA Golf Championships
May 18, 2005
The No. 2-ranked UCLA women's golf team was in third place after the second round of the NCAA Women's Golf Championship, hosted by Oregon State at the par 71, 6,312-yard Meadows Course at the Sunriver Resort in Redmond, Ore.
Miserable weather contributed to significantly higher scores in round two. Gusts of up to 35 mph and intermittent showers dampened a gray day of golf. Two more rounds remain to be played and the forecast calls for similar conditions.
UCLA posted a score of 302 (+18) on Wednesday for a 36-hole total of 590 (+22). Pepperdine and Auburn were tied for first place at 586 (+18). California was fourth at 594 (+26) and top-ranked Duke was fifth at 595 (+27).
UCLA senior Charlotte Mayorkas posted a two-over par score of 73 and was tied for first place with two other players at 144 (+2). Mayorkas began her round on the 10th hole and played her first nine holes in three-over par 39. She birdied her 11th hole and then strung together seven straight pars for a 34 on her inward nine.
Sophomore Hannah Jun was tied for 14th at 149 (+5) after carding a 74. She rallied from a double-bogey on her first hole to play the final 17 holes in two-over par. Senior Melissa Martin produced a steady score of 76 in the second round and was tied for 53rd at 152 (+10). Freshman Amie Cochran was tied for 31st at 150 (+8), and junior Susie Mathews was tied for 78th.
Third round action continues Thursday.
