Menne Leads the Way on Day One in Stanford
STANFORD, Calif. - Sun Devil Women's Golf completed the first of three rounds at the Stanford Intercollegiate on Friday.
Arizona State (+9/293) is in 15th place after day one, still with 36 holes left to make up ground. The Sun Devils teed off in the morning where the scoring average was nearly two strokes higher. Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye's team looks to take advantage in a shift in tee times, which sees them teeing-off in the afternoon tomorrow under more favorable conditions. The Stanford Intercollegiate features 13 of the Top-50 teams in the country according to Golfstat, making this a premier field. In addition to the elite teams, the individual star power is impressive, with 22 of the Top-100 ranked golfers in the nation.
Ashley Menne (+1/72) led the way with a solid start, currently tied for 30th in the 100-golfer field. Grace Summerhays (+2/73) is not far behind, as she recorded the most pars (16) of any golfer in the field. Calynne Rosholt and Beth Coulter (+3/74) figure to be a big part of the charge over the next few days, as the Maroon & Gold have plenty of time to climb up the leaderboard.
"We started of pretty solid on some really tough holes on a beautiful day at Stanford," Coach Farr-Kaye reflected. "We were moving along and doing well, but we struggled finishing. This is a golf course that you have to be very intentional about every shot you hit. Make sure you have good angles from the fairway. We are going to figure out what we need to improve, work on it, and be ready to come back and fight again. This is a very smart team and I look forward to seeing what adjustments they make tomorrow."
