No. 19 Oregon Breaks Program Record at Pac-12 Preview

Nov 4, 2013

KAILUA KONA, Hawaii -- Junior Cassy Isagawa carded the second lowest round in program history and sits third in the 60-player leaderboard through two rounds of the inaugural Pac-12 Preview. The Wailuku, Hawaii, native carded a 6-under par 67 in the morning round followed by an even par (73) second round to lead the 19th-ranked Oregon women’s golf team.

The Ducks are 1-over par through 36 holes and 7th on the team leaderboard entering Tuesday’s final round from the prestigious Nanea Golf Club. The Ducks carded the lowest round vs. par in program history with a 10-under 282 in the opening round after counting three scores below par. Oregon’s 282 tied for the lowest round of the day. The Ducks carded a 303 (+11) in the afternoon. Only four teams improved its team score from round one to round two.

Competing in a field with seven teams ranked in the top 25, Oregon shot a two-round total of 585 (+1), its second best two-round total of the fall season. No. 5 Washington leads the field at 16-under par (568), while UCLA’s Bronte Law leads all individuals at 11-under. All six teams above Oregon on the leaderboard are ranked in the top 13.

“Our players stayed incredibly composed today, whether they were shooting 10 under or 11 over,” said head coach Ria Scott. “I think they experienced what’s possible and now we need to learn how to be more able to tap into that consistently.”

In its first year running, the Pac-12 Preview is the first non-member event ever to be hosted at the renowned par 73 Nanea Golf Club. Tuesday’s final round tees off at 7:30 a.m. HT (10:30 a.m. PT) as Oregon looks to close the fall season with a fifth-straight top six team finish.

Isagawa’s blistering 6-under opening round was the second lowest round of the day. The two-time All-Pac-12 selection played every hole par or better and played the first nine holes of her round at 6-under. She opened on the 13th hole and birdied the 14th before making five straight birdies through holes 17-3. Isagawa shot a 73 (E) in the afternoon with four birdies and 11 pars. She birdied holes No. 2 and 18 in both rounds. Isagawa is five strokes off the lead following her brilliant play today.

Freshman Cathleen Santoso also fueled Oregon’s record breaking 10-under opening round as the newcomer fired a career low score. The Sydney, Australia, native shot a 4-under 69 in the morning and was tied for 2nd on the leaderboard. She made six birdies on the round with a 3-under (34) front nine followed by a 1-under (35) back nine. Santoso carded a 4-over 77 in the afternoon round and is currently tied for 19th with a two-round score of 146 (E). She has placed in the top 20 of all four tournaments this season with six of her 14 rounds at or below par.  

Junior Cali Hipp and sophomore Caroline Inglis are tied for 34th individually with 36-hole scores of 150 (+4).

Hipp opened her round with a 1-under 72 and was one of 19 players to break par in the morning. She made 13 pars and three birdies, and played her final six holes at 2-under to break par. Hipp carded a 5-over 78 in her second round and made nine pars and two birdies.

Inglis, a native of Eugene, carded steady rounds of 74 (+1) and 76 (+3). She made 17 pars in the opening round - the most pars in any round of the tournament. Inglis birdied holes No. 2, 5 and 13 in her closing round. She has played in all five tournaments this fall.

Freshman Marcella Pranovia is tied for 46th with a two-round tally of 154 (+8) following two rounds of 77. She made 12 pars and a birdie on the eighth hole in round one. Pranovia’s second round counted to the team score as she made birdie on holes No. 4, 6 and 14.
