Linner Paces Women's Golf on Final Day at Stanford

Oct 23, 2022

STANFORD, Calif. - Sun Devil Women's Golf continued their climb up the team standings on the final day of the Stanford Intercollegiate.

Arizona State (+1/285) had their best round of the weekend and the fifth-best score of the day on Sunday. Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye's team started the day in 13th position, but moved up all the way to finish in ninth place. The Maroon & Gold improved each day at the Stanford Intercollegiate, leading to a fantastic effort in the final round. ASU led the field with 183 pars, playing consistently over the final two days. 

The play of Amanda Linner was a big reason for the move, as she had one of the best rounds of her collegiate career. She shot a 69 (-2), the lowest round of any Sun Devil this weekend, delivering throughout the morning. She recorded four birdies, including a two-under start through her first five holes. She also finished strong, going one-under over her final five holes. Thanks to her efforts, Linner moved up 19 spots on the leaderboard, one of the biggest jumps by an individual.

Linner was not alone in shooting under par, as teammate Ashley Menne carded a 70 (-1) for the second consecutive day. Menne was the highest-finishing Sun Devil at the Stanford Intercollegiate, earning a tie for 13th place. This is the 13th Top-20 finish of her Sun Devil career. She did it by finishing bogey-free over her final 15 holes, with two birdies helping her end under par on the day.

Beth Coulter finished the second-best of any Sun Devil in a tie for 43rd after her best round of the weekend. She shot a 72 (+1) which allowed her to move up ten spots and also played a major factor in the team's ascent. Coulter finished a team-best six-under on par five opportunities this weekend, finishing with one of the best scoring averages on those holes in the field. The Sun Devils have a quick turnaround, as they prepare for the Pac-12 Preview starting on Oct. 31 at Nanea Golf Club in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

"I am really proud of how this entire team fought back the last two days," Coach Farr-Kaye remarked. "A Top-10 finish here is a solid finish.  We are continuing to grow as golfers each and every day!"

"Amanda and Ashley both played excellent today," Coach Farr-Kaye added. "They came out focused and committed to finishing strong. I was excited to see our veterans step up and it had a positive impact on the entire team."

Each Sun Devil started their day at 8:30 AM MST with the field undergoing a shotgun start, meaning the five players were spread out from Holes 12-15 to begin the round. Amanda Linner came out focused and determined, as she recorded a pair of birdies through her first five holes. As a team, Arizona State really hit their stride midway through the round, sparking their big move up the leaderboard. This included some excellent golf from Beth Coulter and Ashley Menne, who both went the entire nine without a bogey while registering two birdies. Grace Summerhays also avoided any bogeys during this stretch, with the Sun Devils saving their best golf of the weekend for the most important time.
