Apr 24, 2021

STANFORD, Calif. – Following a blistering low score on the back nine the day before, No. 22 Arizona Women's Golf played a balanced second round at the 2021 Pac-12 Women's Golf Championships. The Wildcats used 13 birdies throughout the round to finish in 1-over par for the day and in fourth place entering the final round.

"We were able to carry our momentum over from our strong back nine yesterday and play a more complete round today," said head coach Laura Ianello. "Today's round was a six-stroke improvement from yesterday as Yu-Sang led us in scoring once again. If we can continue to improve our scores tomorrow, we will be in a good place to finish the Pac-12 Championships."

Senior Yu-Sang Hou followed up her 1-under first round by shooting two strokes under par in Saturday's second round. She sits in fifth place among all players at 3-under par. Vivian Hou's steady round of even par of Saturday positioned her into the top 10 at 1-over for the tournament heading into Sunday's final round. The Wildcats' third top-20 player, Ya Chun Chang, finished the first two rounds in a tie for 18th at 6-over.

Arizona sits in fourth at 8-over par entering Sunday's final round, trailing Stanford by a stroke, Arizona State by two strokes and USC by six strokes. The program has finished in the top three of the Pac-12 Championships seven times since 2010.

The Cats begin teeing off at 8:50 a.m. (MST) on Sunday in pairings with Stanford.
