SCU Golfers Battling Strong Winds at Cal Polys Firestone Grill Invite
NIPOMO, Calif. – Twenty five mile per
hour winds have contributed to tough playing conditions Monday for
the Santa Clara University women's golf team at the Monarch Dunes
Golf Club in Nipomo.
SCU is competing at the third annual Firestone Grill Cal Poly Invitational, which is being played Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 4-5, at the Monarch Dunes Golf Club on California's central coast. For compete tournament results CLICK HERE.
Santa Clara posted a first round total of 310 as a team, with Miki Ueoka and Tamara Surtees leading the way at 76, followed by Lauren Oh at 77 and true freshmen Brooke Stephens and Taylor Camany at 81.
"I'm pleased with where we're at after round one," said Santa Clara head coach Polly Schulze. "It could have been a little bit lower with a few more putts dropping for us. But with the conditions here, it's an opportunity for us. If we stay strong and post another decent score, we will be right in the mix tomorrow."
