Ducks Almost Finish Second Round in N.C.

Oct 11, 2014

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Oregon almost got through the second round of the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational Saturday afternoon in Chapel Hill, but Cathleen Santoso had to mark her ball on No. 18 and wait until tomorrow morning to complete her second round due to a weather delay from lightning in the area. The other four Ducks had completed their rounds with Cassy Isagawa leading the charge with a 1-over 73.

The field will finish the second round tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. (ET). The tournament will conclude with a shotgun start final round shortly after at 9:15 a.m.

How It Happened: Isagawa enjoyed a bogey-free front nine on her way to a 1-under 35. The senior had two bogeys on the back side, but still managed to turn in her best round of the fall season.

Kelsey Ulep finished second for the Ducks with a 2-over 74. The freshman fired mirror one-over 37’s on both sides, with two birdies and three bogeys on both the front and back.

Cali Hipp was third with a 77 and Caroline Inglis carded a 78. Hipp doubled No. 16 and Inglis doubled No. 17 and No. 3.

Santoso’s score should count once she finishes up tomorrow. The sophomore was 2-over heading into the 18th hole. Santoso was even-par on the front and 2-over on the back.

What It Means: The Ducks are currently tied for sixth place in the team standings. More than half the field is still stuck on the course, so there is still room for movement, especially in the middle of the pack.

The teams in fifth through 10th place are separated by only three strokes. While there is still more than a round of golf yet to be played, South Carolina (6-under) and Duke (4-under) have significantly separated themselves from the rest of the field and appear to be the front-runners.

Tomorrow’s Action: Santoso will finish her second round at 8 a.m. and the rest of the team will play the third round at 9:15 a.m. with a shotgun start.
