Women's Golf Completes Day One at Pac-12 Preview

Nov 1, 2021

KONA, HI. - Sun Devil Women's Golf completed the first 18 holes at the 2021 Pac-12 Preview at Nanea Golf Club.

Arizona State had several bright spots during a solid first round, carding a 300 to settle in eighth place. ASU sits just three strokes back of seventh place with everyone chasing No. 1 Stanford, who paced the field with a 288.

Freshman Calynne Rosholt continued her outstanding play to start the season, finishing with the lowest score of any Sun Devil. Her 73 (E) was made possible thanks to her consistency, as her 14 pars were tied for third-most in the field. Rosholt is currently tied for 11th place and finds herself one stroke outside the Top-10 and five strokes off the overall lead.

"Once again we were led by Freshman Calynne Rosholt with a solid even par round," Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye remarked. "We started out strong today then struggled mid round. We put ourselves in a tough position.  We are going to make a few adjustments to our course management tomorrow and come back with the goal of winning the day!"

Alessandra Fanali and Ashley Menne were the next best Sun Devils on the day, each carding a 75 (+2) and sitting in a tie for 27th. A crowded leaderboard with little separation means Alexandra Forsterling (T-38th) is the fourth Sun Devil still in contention for a title.

The Sun Devils found a ton of success on the 13th hole, with four of the five golfers recording a birdie on the hole. 

The Maroon & Gold are back at it tomorrow, with all five golfers teeing-off at 7:30 AM. Arizona State will be paired with Oregon State, Colorado, and Arizona with the five Sun Devils spread out from holes 6-10 to start the round. Here is how Coach Farr-Kaye's team will begin day two of the Pac-12 Preview.
Pac-12 Preview Tee Times (MST):
Amanda Linner, 10:30 am (Hole 10)
Alexandra Forsterling, 10:30 am (Hole 9)
Ashley Menne, 10:30 am (Hole 8)
Alessandra Fanali, 10:30 am (Hole 7)

The Sun Devils are extremely familiar with the Pac-12 Preview, as they have participated in all eight prior editions of the event. Back in 2019, Coach Farr-Kaye's team finished in third place behind Top-10 performances from Raquel Olmos and Alexandra Forsterling. As a team, the Maroon & Gold posted a 869 (-7), the lowest-ever by the program at the Pac-12 Preview. They took home the team title in 2016, as Sophia ZeebLinnea Strom, and Monica Vaughn all placed in the Top-10. Arizona State rode a strong effort from Strom to a second-place finish in the 2015 Pac-12 Preview, earning second-place in the individual standings thanks to her score of 215 (-4). A Sun Devil has yet to win an individual title at the Pac-12 Preview.
