Beavers Battle Through Long Weather Delay At Pac-12 Championship
EUGENE, Ore. – The second round of the Pac-12 Championship was delayed more than five hours due to heavy rain and standing water on the greens Tuesday, but the Oregon State women's golf team was able to finish and sits in good position heading to the final 18 holes.
The Beavers posted an 8-over 296 for the second-straight day at the par-72, 6,267-yard Eugene Country Club and is in seventh place with a 16-over 592.
There were 15 players still on the course when play was suspended due to darkness. They will finish the round beginning at 7 a.m. on Wednesday. The final round is slated to start at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start. Live scoring is available at golfstat.com.
Madde Sund led the Beavers in the second round with a 1-over 73 that included birdies on the par-4 10th and par-3 12th holes with three bogeys that moved her into a tie for 11th place with a 3-over 74-73--147. The redshirt freshman's best score at Oregon State is an even-par 72 and her best collegiate finish is a tie for 20th place at the Florida State Match-Up.
Kelsey Webster, a transfer from the University of Colorado, was steady for the second-straight round, shooting a 2-over 74 and is even with Sund on the individual scoreboard with a 3-over 73-74--147. She has dropped in nine birdies through the first two rounds, the most in the 55-player field.
Chayse Gomez and Ellie Slama are both tied for 28th place with a 6-over 150. Gomez bettered her first round score by two strokes with a 2-over 74 with three birdies, while Slama carded a 3-over 75 on back-to-back days with a birdie in each round.
