Huskies 7th After Two Rounds Of Pac-12 Preview
KAILUA-KONA, Hawai'i -- The Washington women's golf team heads into their final round of play this fall in seventh after shooting a 12-over 304 in the second round of the Pac-12 Preview on Tuesday at Nanea Golf Club. The Huskies are at +11 overall (291-304=595) and are a stroke behind Oregon and UCLA (+10).
Stanford enters Wednesday's final round at -5 and with a three-shot advantage over USC.
Washington entered the second round in third after its best round of the fall, but struggled to recapture the magic 24 hours later. Despite their ups and downs, the Huskies still have three golfers in the top-10 among individuals and coach Mary Lou Mulflur is proud of her team's efforts.
"We battled out hearts out today," Mulflur said. "We were struggling most of the day, hanging on by a thread. We had just a few more putts and a few more blowup holes that were costly."
Camille Boyd, Stefanie Deng and Jamie Hsieh each shot a 2-over 75 at the par-73 course on the Big Island of Hawai'I and remain in the top-10.
Boyd is even-par overall (71-75=146) and tied for seventh. Deng (73-75=148) and Hsieh (73-75=148) are tied for 10th at +2.
Winnie Ng and Brittany Kwon are tied for 41st at +8 overall.
Katherine Muzi of USC carries a two-shot lead into the final round, sitting at -7.
"We have one more round to close out the fall," Mulflur said. "We need to be tough out there."
