Huskies Wrap Up Fall With Sixth-Place Finish At Pac-12 Preview
KAILUA-KONA, Hawai'i – Freshman Jamie Hsieh recorded a top-10 finish and the Washington women's golf team was sixth as a team at the Pac-12 Preview, the final fall test for the Huskies in 2021.
The Huskies combined to shoot a final-round 4-over 296 to move up one spot on the leaderboard after Tuesday's second round. UW shot a three day total of +15 (291-304-296-891) and ended up one shot back of 12th-ranked UCLA.
"We had a tough start and tough finish today, but were pretty good in the middle," Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur said. "I think we got a small glimpse of how good we can be."
Stanford was -1 overall to win the team title by four strokes over USC.
The Trojans' Katherine Muzi led from start to finish to claim medalist honors at -9 overall.
Hsieh shined brightest for the Huskies in their final tune up. She led the Huskies with a final-round 1-under 72 to end with a three-day total of 1-over 220 (73-75-72). She ended up tied for 10th after her previous career-best finish was 41st.
Hsieh started her day from the No. 8 hole and recorded an opening bogey. She added another on No. 12, but from there, Hsieh chipped away at her score. She birdied No. 14 and 18 to get back to even par, and finally got in the red on the par-four fifth hole with a birdie.
Stefanie Deng ended up tied for 13th, finishing one-shot behind Hsieh at +2 (73-75-73=221). She ended up with a team-best five birdies on Wednesday, but finished with three-straight bogeys to end up even for her round.
Camille Boyd tied for 28th to finish third among Huskies. Brittany Kwon tied for 30th and Winnie Ng was 35th. Boyd was +9 overall, Kwon +10 and Ng +11.
The Huskies now head into winter and will return to action Feb. 14 at The Rebel Beach.
"We will use this winter to grow the parts of our respective games that need it and work to get stronger physically and mentally," Mulflur said.
