Oct. 11, 2005
Sammamish, WA - Arizona State shot 7-over 295 to hold a six-stroke lead heading into Wednesday's final round of play at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational at Sahalee Country Club. The ninth-ranked Sun Devils used a strong showing by freshman Jennifer Osborn to move past second-ranked Pepperdeine to the top of the leaderboard.
Osborn shot a tournament low 3-under 69 to move to the top of the field in stroke play at 2-under 142. UNLV's Da Sol Chung is five shots behind Osborn in second place. Osborn opened play with a 1-over 73. Stanford's Jenni Tangtipaiboontana, who shared the first-round lead with Chung, is third at 148.
After shooting even par through her first 10 holes, Osborn got hot during the second half of her round. She posted three straight birdies on holes 11 through 13 before carding a bogie on No. 14. She added another birdie on 16 to finish her back nine at 3-under.
Osborn is one of just two golfers to manage an under-par round at the tournament. San Francisco's Jessica Potter fired a 1-under 71 on Tuesday to move up to 11th. She opened play with an 80.
Washington moved up one spot in the standings with a second-round score of 309. The Huskies two-day total stands at 41-over 617. Washington is playing without senior All-American Paige Mackenzie, who begins play at The Spirit International Amateur Championship Wednesday in Houston.
A trio of Huskies are tied for 21st at 10-over 154. Included in that group is junior Courtney McCracken, who had UW's best second-round score with a 2-over 74. Amber Prange shot 76 and Amy Wang carded a 79 during the second round to also stand at 154. Sung Ea Lee is 32nd at 155 after posting an 80 on Tuesday. Kim Shin is 58th at 163. Ashley Bickerton, playing as an individual, is 38th at 156. She shot 79 during the second round after opening with a 77.
