Sooners in fourth, Tulsa 11th in Westbrook Spring Invite

The University of Oklahoma women’s golf team is tied for fourth place and the University of Tulsa is in 11th after Sunday’s two rounds at the Westbrook Spring Invitational. The two-day, 54-hole event is being played in Peoria, Ariz., at the par-72, 6,269-yard Vistas Course at the Westbrook Village Golf Club.

The Sooners, who are playing four freshmen and a sophomore, tallied a 292 (+4) for the first 18 holes and followed with a 288 (E) in the second round to close the day just one stroke out of third place.

No. 12-ranked Tennessee leads the 15-team field at 8 under par (568) while Oregon sits in second place at 8 under. Illinois finished the day in third place with a 579 (+3) and Oregon State and Notre Dame share fourth place with the Sooners at 580 (+4). 

Sixth-year OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell said it was exciting to see the areas in which her team improved over the offseason.

"We’ve been working hard on our games and it’s paying off," Drouin-Luttrell said. "We worked on areas we needed the most and it’s helping. Playing 36 holes can be tough and tiring. We struggled to finish our rounds, but I’m actually really happy with the results. We need to take that momentum into tomorrow."

Oklahoma’s Hannah Wood started her spring campaign strong, finishing the day tied for first place out of 82 competitors at 140 (-4). After shooting an even-par first round, the freshman responded with a 68 (-4) to close the day. Wood pocketed four birdies and 14 pars in the second round. 

"Hannah is playing solid. She’s been working really hard on her putting, and it’s made a huge difference in her game," Drouin-Luttrell explained. "She’s a great asset to us."

Fellow Sooner freshman Ana Ruiz opened the tournament with a 2-over 74 and added a second-round 71(-1) to finish the day tied for 17th place at 145 (+1). 

The freshman duo of Valerie Tanguay and Rylee Pedigo is tied for 32nd place, each with a 4-over 148. Tanguay finished the first round at 3 over par but improved in the second, registering a 73 (+1). Pedigo proved to be solid in the opening round, shooting an even-par 72, and followed with a 76 (+4) in the afternoon.

OU sophomore Alexandra Kaui is tied for 54th with a 150 (+6) after shooting a 74 (+2) and a 76 (+4).

Tulsa shot rounds of 300 and 296 for a 36-hole total of 596.   Tulsa sits in 11th place heading into Monday’s final 18 holes as junior Antonia Von Wnuck is in 24th place after turning in rounds of 74 and 72 for a 2-over par 146. Chanya Angwarawong and Franziska Voellinger are tied for 32nd place with scores of 148. Angwarawong turned in rounds of 77 and a team-best 71 in the second round, while Voellinger had rounds of 73 and 75.
 
Alex Haun is in 76th place with a 157 total and Nadia Majidizadeh is in 81st place with a score of 159.
