UW & Boyd Both Second After Two Rounds At Chambers Bay
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – The Washington women's golf team finished day one at the Chambers Bay Invitational in second place, while sophomore Camille Boyd also finished the 36-hole Monday in second.
The Huskies finished the two rounds with a team score of 584, eight strokes over par. Boyd is 3-under through two rounds, having shot a 4-under 68 in the first round and a 1-over 73 in the second.
"I"m proud of the way that we battled through the tough conditions," said UW head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. "We are learning more every day, and are continuing to improve our decision making. We could certainly improve our putting, but overall, they really battled out there."
Boyd is joined in the top-10 by Jamie Hsieh, who is 3-over for the tournament, good for a tie for eighth place. Freshman Kennedy Knox followed a 6-over opening round with a 2-under 70 in the second, placing her in a tie for 11th overall.
Boyd's 68 was tied for the best round of the day, in either round.
Both Stefanie Deng and Brittany Kwon are 6-over, tying them for 18th place in the 107-woman field.
Washington led the tournament after round one, with a team score of 3-over 291, two shots better than the next-closest team, UCLA, at 5-over 293. Boyd was tied for first place after the first round, thanks to her 4-under 68. Hsieh (tied for 5th at even) and Deng (tied for 7th at 1-over) weren't far behind.
UCLA leads the tournament at 1-under, while Pepperdine is third, at 14-over.
The two-day, three-round tournament concludes Tuesday with the final round.
