Feb. 16, 2013
STANFORD, Calif. - After a rocky start in the first round of the Peg Barnard Invitational, the Washington women's golf team settled down over its final nine holes to end day one tied for fourth.
The Huskies four counting golfers combined to shoot 2-under par over their final nine holes after starting the round 13-over on their first nine. Washington is tied with San Jose State at 295 (+11).
"We had another tough day today, but they were gritty and kind of hung in there," said Washington Coach Mary Lou Mulflur. "We got off to a poor start and never could really recover.
"But they made the best out of it. We didn't give up and made a couple birdies coming in."
The two-day tournament concludes on Sunday with a final 18 holes of action.
California has the lead after shooting 285 (+1). Host Stanford is second at 5-over, followed by Boston College at +6.
Kim had a team high four birdies and a team-low two bogeys, but a quadruple bogey 7 on the par-3 eighth hole hurt her round.
Okino had four bogeys and a pair of birdies.
Sophomore Jennifer Yang is third among Huskies on the leader board. Yang shot an opening-round 74 and is tied for 21st.
Walk-on freshman Ying Luo closed strong and ended up shooting 76. She is tied for 28th.
Freshman Charlotte Thomas shot a non-counting 79 and is tied for 48th.
Senior Brittany Tallman is competing as an individual and shot 75. She is tied for 28th.
