Feb. 13, 2010
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford's women's golf team finds itself tied for second place after the first round of the Peg Barnard Invitational after the Cardinal fired an opening round 304 (+20) this morning at Stanford Golf Course.
The Cardinal is tied with Washington as both schools trail first place California (296) by eight shots heading into tomorrow's final 18 holes. Oregon is in fourth place at 305 while UC Davis is in fifth place at 310.
Stanford freshman Sally Watson shot a two-over 73 today and is tied with Hawaii's Corie Hou for third place. Cal's Pia Halbig is the first round leader after shooting an even par 71 while Anya Alvarez of Washington is in second place after an opening round 72.
'Conditions were tough today,' said head coach Caroline O'Connor. 'I saw a lot of good things out of team today. We had a lot of opportunities today but couldn't get anything to fall. We have to minimize our errors tomorrow and capitalize on some of our chances tomorrow.'
Tomorrow's final round will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a shotgun start.
